    So who uses them? I have used mine 1x time and that was when I did a full detail and did not pay attention to its effect on the paint, do they marr the paint? I know the SV brushes can if used dry and a chance even if they are wet.

    It's a bit rougher than my Raceglaze set, definitely.

    I have 3 of these brushes along the way with some RG brushes. I did fine out that these brushes are made out of boars hair and that I see a few prominent detailers on DW use them on paint .

    I have some RG ones but mainly use SV wheel brush on paint right now but the Megs one feels somewhat the same as my SV/RG ones...Only time I really use a brush is around the grills and window surrounds.

    Hmm, maybe mine got a bit stiff from not using it for a while.

    The boars hair will stiffen up a bit after awhile. I find the at the bristles on the Slidelock aren't stiff enough at any setting for doing around emblems etc if there is any dirt build up at all.

    Yeah I have several Meg's Slide Lock Brushes and the bristles are just way too soft to do anything, at any of the five "settings." I know a lot of detailers on DW use this brush but IMO, you may as well just try exhaling instead because that's about as much scrubbing power that the brush has to offer.

    This brush is terrible IMO. Not great for actually "cleaning" purposes but instead more for light agitation.

    The bristles bend back to much to actually agitate heavy grime from emblems and badges. I prefer for the slightly firmer SV brushes for agitation and wheel cleaning.

    I use mine for cleaning interior vents. Works great!

    Hey Dave. Have you tried SV Pneu brush in place of the Meg's Slide Lock? Or you just stick with the SV Wheel and Detail brushes?

    I use the meg side lock brush all the time for interior. Works for me..

    I would agree with the other posters on this brush. I use the brush for interior only and it works well for me.

    I have had excellent resuls with the slide lock brush on the interiors but have never used it on exterior paint or wheels. The pointed wheel brush and tire brush are also favorites of mine. :thumb:

    I actually just got my Megs brush in today and tried it out on wheels, emblems, jams and interior. I think it works extremely well in all of these areas. The long bristles are soft bend easily making them very gentle on what your are working with and when the slide is all the way down the bristles become more dense and less likey to move around giving it more aggressive agitation ability.

    My RG brushes should be coming in next week so I'll see how the megs brush stands up to them.

    Emile Welcome to Detailing

    It is discontinued but they still have it in the UK I believe, and I just randomly find them on eBay here and there.

    I recently purchased two of the Meg's Gold Class Wheel Brushes off of eBay as well, which is also discontinued! Woohoo!!

    PAC still sells them. It seems like they still have a bunch in stock along with the tire brushes.

    I got mine from PAC they have gotten some of the discontinued brushes. Tripple duty one was great for pad cleaning.
