Sorry,but that is wrong. Buy the stiffest roller frame and best roller cover you can afford. A good one washed out w/ water if using latex or washed out with thinner if using oil-base will last for a long long time. It will also put way more paint on the given area. Do not go cheap on rollers ever.
