Nice picture Ben, I like the keyboard touch.

I don't own a Rooney, but if I could afford one, I would have either one of these two.

I just realized I was wrong. I do have a D.R. Harris H2 best badger which is the Rooney 1/2. I have not used it in over a year. Maybe I should try it again sometime. When pigs fly.Biggrin

Great choice Johnny, and truly a Rooney classic... The Emilion.

I have two Rooney brushes that are great performers, and haven't shed a hair that I can remember: A Rooney 1/1 Best Badger; and a Rooney 1/2 "Super" Silvertip.
