I'm in the market for a new brush. I currently have a Vufix 2236 in Super, a Simpsons #56 in Best, and a Jagger Best that's branded for CO Bigelow. The Simpson is a great brush though a bit small (both in overall height and knot size), the Vulfix is a great cream brush but a but too large for soaps as well as being a bit floppy, and the Jagger is a decent but unexciting backup brush.

I would ideally like a brush with more backbone, one that has a longer handle, decent knot size, and is a good soap brush in particular. A Silvertip might be the ticket, but I'm open to any suggestions. As to cost, I'd like to stay around $100 with a hard limit of $125.

I've been looking at a couple of brushes that I'd welcome some feedback on

Semogue Owners Club -Super Badger with Cherry Wood Handle

Simpson PJ2 in Best Badger

Rooney/T&H Classic Lavender Silvertip

Simpsons Colonel X2L in Best Badger

These are just a few that have caught my eye, I'm open to any other suggestions.

Thanks for your help!

Are you going to use it for face or bowl-lathering?
Have you considered the WSP Stubby 2-band brush? Great brush for the money. There are a few reviews on it.

You could also custom order a brush form one of the vendors as they are making some amazing brushes.

Good luck.

Hi Celestinoand thanks for your reply. I bowl lather almost exclusively. I'm not really familiar with WSP brushes I'll look through the site and read about them.

Take a look at the JL Petree Vie-Long Two Band Badger brush at Bullgoose. It's on sale right now for a steal. It's a GREAT brush. It has some scritch, but not more than the Semogue SOC brush that you linked above (also a great brush, BTW). It will destroy any soap, it's nice in the hand, and pretty to look at, too. Vie-Long badger brushes are a good value overall, in my opinion.

Good luck!

If you want a longer handle to bowl lather with, higher backbone, & some scritch then the SOC 2-band should be at the top of your list.

Oh wait, it is! Cool
