I'm planning on getting my first badger hair brush and I have a $50 budget.  So far the brushes that seem to be value for money with this budget appears to be the Vulfix Super Badger 660 and the Omega Silvertip 636.  Is there a huge difference between Super and Silvertip?  Any input regarding which one I should get would be greatly appreciated.

Hey!
both have been in my den; currently my Son has the Omega 636.

The 660 is just as soft and from what I recall, less floppy than the Omega.

Hi gijames!  Which would you recommend?  I currently have a Semogue 1305 and this will be my first foray into the badgers.

I subscribe this.The Vulfix 660 is a great shaving brush.I prefer the 660 small to the medium , since I facelather , and I can use it with both paint and circular strokes.The medium size is better suited for bowl lathering.The Omega is quiet soft , both the tips and the backbone.If you like shaving creams and bowl lathering , the Omega could be a good candidate too.

Hmmm,
that is a tough question as far as what you will prefer.

I know for myself, I generally prefer more backbone than what the Omega 636 has for its knot.

If you like the feel of the backbone in the Semogue boar 1305 than you will probably prefer the Vulfix 660 over the Omega 636.

The only reason I got rid of the Vulfix was because it was gifted to my brother Wink


However, he prefers the custom Rudy Vey I sent him with a Muhle STF v2 23mm knot... he has very sensitive skin and prefers the ultra-soft synthetic

Thanks James!  Your reply is starting to give me an idea on which one I'll eventually get!
