Default Synthetic WC brushes

Has anyone used Robert Simmons White Sable WC brushes? How do you like them for watercolor? Compared to what?

Default white sable

They are excellent. I have used some for 20 years and they hold up well with watercolor. They will not carry as much paint (volume) as a comparable best quality sable brush, but they wear and point much longer as the material is tougher than natural hair. so the hair tips don't wear off as fast. I prefer sable for egg tempera, however, as I use smaller brushes and want to carry more paint at a time.
