So reselling a batch of substandard rollers fits the business practice.
May sound like a promo but itís true and I really do hate he had a bad experience .

As I mentioned in reply 12, I did more research and found:

* they are authentic. I checked with Epifanes directly.
* I used them on a product I should not have!

Epifanes foam rollers are great for 2 part PAINT, just not 2 part Epoxy Primer, apparently! The fault is entirely on my side. Part of it is they came in a box without an Epifanes label, and they fell apart (due to my ignorance using them with the wrong product) .. so I made an assumption they were not authentic. my bad . I made the post before doing my research, which I am sorry I did!

Re: Product at Jamestown Distributors

Thanks for admitting your error. I've never had a problem with Jamestown, even if they are in Bristol.
