I was thinking on buying one of these brushes soon, and would anybody have any insight on which one would be more useful?

They have the fiberglass bristle brush, and the ultra micro fiberglass brush, I'm assuming the ultra is smaller, cause it cost a little less, they don't have any description of the ultra.

But does anybody have either one of these and would know which one would be more useful?

Thank You a head of time
Kerry

In the late 50's to early 60's I finally moved out of Newark Ohio, but that Owens Corning Fiberglass plant used to have the whole town fill the air with either yellow or pink dust from the fiberglass, you could taste it in your mouth, it was so thick, everyday.

The whole sky would be either yellow or pink, depending on what kind they made that day. A lot of people itch from insulation, but I don't, cause I grew up with it in the air everyday. People wouldn't believe how bad it used to be, but the people there needed jobs, so they never said anything.

Thanks a lot for the photos Ken, I got the latest book Micro Mark sent out, and it didn't have them photos in it, just the picture of the big one, it is good to compare.
