You be the judge.  Give it a go and let us know what you think.

BTW, I love my Vie Long horse!

Like Frank, I love my Vie Longs - both the pure horse and the mixed horse/bagder - but in the end it's only you who can say if it's a good brush or not. Top notch quality though, so if you decide you don't like it it should be easy to resell or PIF away.

I once bought a low-end Vie Long - mine was boar, the 13710C. It was pretty awful, not much bristle in the brush, I ended up giving it away. Perhaps the horse equivalent is better.

I can't comment on the 13755 but if it helps I have the 13061B, 13061M and the 13051M and they are all excellent. Vie Long brushes are very high quality and the horse brushes are terrific. I'd say go for it!

I love my Vie-Long horse hairs. They've got a little bit of scritch, but not as much as most Black Badgers I've tried. They've got pretty good backbone, and fairly soft tips. They are kind of hard to describe, because they are different. They're not "like boars" or "like badgers". I recommend you try it, and see what you think. For a brush, they are not too awfully expensive to try, so like WW said you can always B/S/T it if you don't like it.

You'll be the best judge of this brush once you use it! Good luck.  Smile

ive tried to like horse but they are a bit to scritchy for my tastes. great if you like that. a boar badger mix is about as scritchy as i can stand and even then those have to be pretty soft

Vie long makes  great brushes.
Now you got yourself a nice natural hair brush to experience that..

There is some scritch to some of l these 

 what I do is use my horse hair brushes more in a  stroking motion.

Enjoy the natural hair bliss, presoak it, break it in, and when it has collected soap use shampoo and conditioner to make it spongy and flexible again.
Comb it out, just like you would care for your own hair. ...Smile

I am a palm and face latherer and I bought two Vie Long brushes from Ravi last year: a 13066 with 50/50 mane and tail hair, and a 13064M (35/65%).  The 13064M was beautiful - with unbleached hair and a faux horn handle, and the handle shape was perfect, but the scritch was too much for me and it had to move on.  I still have the 13066.  The handle is a little smaller but still manueverable and the it feels much better on the face.  I have not tried the horse hair mixed with other hairs (badger or boar), but I would highly recommend the 50/50 mane and tail mix in the 24mm knot.
