We're not arguing perse. There are a lot of good quality paints out there. I however, recommend what I have had great success with compared to many other paints at supposedly equal quality. Price has nothing to do with it. That is the point I was trying to get across. Do I want to pay $30, $40, $50 a gallon. Heck no!

I understand it may be your technique. Painting isn't easy for everyone.

I used purdy brush (XL-Dale), purdy roller covers (correct nap) (very keen on using good products) cut in with brush then, roll as close as I could to edges. I also primed the entire room with SW wall and wood primer, sand between primer and paint. I am soon going to be painting my upstairs bathroom and looking to try something else, but SW gives me 40% when the sale comes up. Could the issue I have be with something I did?
I do not love Duration paint. It's over priced. It's very thin and spatters a lot. And it sets up way to quickly. I personally think it's crap. If I were doing a job and I had to use Sherwin Williams paint I would use Pro -Mar 200.

Not sure which Duration paint you were using but Duration paint is actually thicker than the other products hence the reason it does splatter a tad more than other products I've used. I personally love the Pro-Mar 200 Zero-VOC product for walls. I started using the it the day it hit the stores and see no difference in between the regular 200 and the Zero-VOC.
I totally agree with you, Duration is quite expensive. I only use it when I really have to.
