Time to play Polo, but should I cut any from the team... ?

I have the following Simpsons Polo brushes:

PL 8 Manchurian
PL 8 Super 2 band
PL 10 Manchurian
PL 10 Super 2 band
PL 14 Super 3 band

And here is a team photo...

   

My question is...

Should I cut any due to the chance they'll end up just being bench warmers?

The PL 14 is here to stay. I need the muscle on the Team.
The two Manchurian imports are my star players. They won't get cut.
So, it's the 2 band PL 8 and PL 10 under scrutiny. Should I keep them?

To help answer my question...
I love Manchurian, it's my preferred hair by a wide margin.
I also love big brushes and Manchurians are notoriously small.

So can I justify the 2 band PL 8 and PL 10 on the basis of being larger knots?

Any thoughts or comments?

I would sell the soft Polo 8 in Super, and enforce the team by adding a Polo 14 in Manchurian.

Then ask Dr. P if you can buy his XXXXXL Polo 22 in 3-band Super and use that brush as a playing manager on the team, in case the team experience injuries or some players lose the necessary motivation to keep winning matches Smile

Nice line up! I'd have to say that out of the bunch the two PL 10 brushes sure look like they can get the job done!

Claus, I don't know that Mark can offer the Manchurian in knot size larger than the PL 10...

Ben, I think you might need some Polos in Best Badger, for balance....

Ask Mark for a custom limited edition Polo Giant Colossos 14 in a combo of mixed Manchurian and 2-Band Super hair Cool

The handle shape of a Polo is lovely authoritative - don't let those bruhes go.

You are probably right Dipesh, at this point the PL 8 Super 2 band is really the only brush in jeopardy of being offered up...

I can see why Ben. Maybe use it a few times to see if it delivers the goods and call it from there?

Not being familiar with the game of Polo, I really can't comment as to which if any of these lovely brushes needs to go ... I am willing to offer a comfortable home here in Pennsylvania though, should they find themselves without one! Tongue

I would never part of my two band Polo 's , either Somerset or Vulfix. Until i start selling off all of my brushes sometime in the future. And even then they will be the very last that would leave their stable....

How do you like the Polo 10 Manchurian vs the 2 Band? My Butterscotch LE Manchurian should arrive any day now. I LOVE my 2-band brushes, but I'm a little worried that the Manchurian tips won't be as soft as I'm used to...

I've got a Polo 10 in 2 Band and i have to say, it's one of the best brushes that I have ever used. No negatives...

I don't see a Polo 12 in there...any thoughts about those?
