Want to buy what used to be one of the more popular brushes on the forums, the Rooney 1/1. I would prefer it in faux horn or faux ivory but certainly with the old style discreet "Rooney" lettering on the brush rather than the "newer" Logo. Just prefer the simple.... Contact me if you have one that you would like to sell or trade for an item or two from my stash.

What do you mean by "old style"? The regular Rooneys are somewhat cursive and the Heritage ones are print. Is that what you're refering to?

That is what he is referring to. The older Rooney's had the print on them. Not sure there is a huge difference besides aesthetics but I will leave that up to the OP.

Agreed as well. One of the reasons I love the Heritage brushes.

PM sent.

The older Rooneys, aside from the lettering, had taller lofts and softer badger hair.

Actually I like both ways, I feel the same way about Wibourg's lettering change, and I'm glad that I have them, regular and Heritage.
