I have two New Forest brushes myself, both in the Two Band Super Badger and I tell you truly they rank amongst my best no matter what the cost. The little Fan shape 1901 is the real star. Real leading man material, both of them, my Tubby1 as well. Lots of backbone but soft where it counts. Only drawback is the Tubby is a little too pointy of a bulb, but I've been able to alleviate that some in the drying stage.

Mouser, I couldn't agree more. I have a Tubby 2 and a 2213 Finest Silvertip: they are both outstanding brushes and possibly the best value on th market when it comes to badger. I'm thinking of adding a 2403, 2-band to my badger cete.

I've had New Forest brushes in the past, and I really thought they were excellent brushes.

The handles didn't have quite a the finish of a Simpsons, but they cost a teensy bit less Biggrin so I was willing to overlook that. The knots were wonderful. Better than the Manchurian Simpsons I had (For me. YMMV).

The only brushes that I have that out perform the little fan shaped 1901 Super Badger Two Band 19mm I have are the ones that cost four times as much or more.

I recently purchased a Tubby 1 fan after a recommendation here, and its ok, but I wouldn't rave about it. I also have a Vulfix 2234, which I love for creams, and I wanted something similar, with a little more backbone. The center bristles get a bit crusty after drying out, despite extensive rinsing (none of my other brushes ever did that) and it just doesn't have the nice quality feel of the Vulfix, which was in the same price range.

Sorry to hear that. Mine doesn't do that at all. My gripe, and it's a small one, is that the bulb is too pointy on the Tubby 1. I hear the Tubby 2 is much rounder. But it's the little fan shape 1901 that really, really shines for me.
