does anyone know of a reasonably priced brand of paintbrushes that don't leave brush strokes or brush hairs behind? I would be using them to paints lots of different mediums. Thanks in advance!

Depending on what you paint and what you paint on, you should have a couple of different go to brushes.

This site has the best online selection for whatever the medium. Smiley

Oil ,tempera and acrylic paint are similar when it comes to brushes, if u don't like when brush hairs are left in the paint buy mid range quality brushes  and don't let them sit in water or thinner , that just destroys brushes and make the hairs fall out.
As for a brush that leaves no brush strokes use "studio" brushes soft bristle, they normally look orange red like and white (shader/blending) brush.

there are a lot of brands. the best brush for the job is based on the feel in my opinion. they can run from 50 cents to $100 bucks or more.
i have a pure red sable watercolor brush i payed $30 bucks for, and i saw some one with a $100 ink brush from japan.
 you can do a $5k masterpiece with a $5 set of brushes.
hope my advice and opinion help =D
