Forum Title: Slinger moves up to 14
So at my advanced age in the business, I finally decided to give the longer rollers a try. I have a remodel job with lots of new drywall to paint and thought it would be a great place to give them a shot. I gotta say I think I'm gonna like them. I was kind of concerned about fatigue with rolling ceilings, but it doesn't seem to be an issue. Maybe less of the repetitious shoulder movement makes up for the additional weight. On the con side, that tub you have to have to roll out of makes me think I should have bought a bigger truck. No kidding, you can bath toddlers in that thing. Maybe I can figure out a way to lash it down on the ladder racks. Lol. But I do have a few questions. I've been told you can use an 18 cover on a 14 roller frame without a problem. What say ya'll with experience with the wider frames/covers. And since it seems not all brands of covers/sleeves are available in the wider sizes, what would you recommend?

Congratulations on giving that a go. I think the decreased amount of movements definitely make up for increased weight. I use 18' covers on the 14' frames for back rolling for spray and it works fine. Doesn't seem like it would work too well for dip rolling, it's too floppy. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
