never heard of it. But I certainly wouldn't buy anything that wasn't a known brand. There are several that are proven good and not too expensive. If you have a compressor at home- then it's even better- because the compressor is what costs the most. Try Paasche (Talon is what I recommend) Grex has some great brushes- they also have compressors, but the whole shibang is $$$ Just make sure your compressor does around 20 psi. If you find a cheap brush/compressor set, chances are that the compressor only does like 9 0r 10 psi and your work will look fuzzy. Even if you end up with a single action brush, your work will look cleaner at higher PSI-s.
I personally use a KK compressor and a talon. ( KK customer service sucks though-so I don't recommed it at all.They aren't worth it.) But the iwata ninja jet and silver jet compressors are less than $130- and are quiet. They only do up to 18psi- which will work fine for any gravity feed brush you have. I like to go higher psi- but I work with several types of brushes. If you can afford it, go with a higher compressor.
Go to bear air or chicago air and they have good prices.
