Just thought I would share this with the community.....I got in a new Rooney Heritage Stubby 2 super badger 3 band.....I took it out and figured I would start the break in and this brush whips up a lather so quickly....I use TOBS Jermyn St cream and I think I am going to love this new brush......

I agree, I like this one enough that I also bought a Rooney Heritage Stubby 3.....

I got the size 3. I would've preferred the 2 if one was available at the time, but even so it's my favorite brush. Or rather, along with my M&F L7.

How do prices compare with a comparable Simpson? What IS the comparable Simpson...or are Rooneys incomparable? Smile

Can we see pics of that guy? I really prefer my larger knots. I want some more in the way of 28-32mm

Awesome brush Wallace! I hope you continue to love it more and more! As of yesterday I had my second use with my first Rooney, a BeeHive 2 3-B...I too am enjoying it incredibly, and really like the Rooney knot...Perfect density and great hair - very soft with a great sensation on the skin, along with surprisingly good backbone for soft 3-Band hair.

The prices compare with the Simpson Chubby 2 and up.....The Simpson Chubby 3 is a very large knot that is very dense and rather a lather hog....LOL....but a very nice brush. I have a Simpson Chubby 1 super badger and it is a great little brush with it being a 24mm knot, as I prefer a larger knot like a 28mm....But since Simpson sold out to another company, it seems like their quality control is lacking just a bit, but this is my opinion.

I find just the opposite. When the original Simpsons sold to the Carter era brushes I think the quality control went down, but since being purchased by Vulfix I believe the quality control has gone way up. I find their brushes to be well made and very consistent. But as you say, this is my opinion.

I hope to enjoy my first Rooney for many years and hope to have the same experience that you have found with yours.....Thanks and take care!

Hello my friend and you could be right, I have only had one Simpson a Chubby 1 super badger and it is a great little brush, and I have had no problems.....I made this statement just from a lot I have been reading on other forums about problems that others have had....But maybe out of the numbers that are sold world wide this small % may not be as bad as many think. I am not sure, but thanks for your response.
