Style 1 in all 3 sizes and a 3/2.
You can see the 1/3 has slightly blonder hair than the other three, which are more silver. And I suppose, upon further review, the 1/1 is somewhat in between those shades.

As far as "floppy" reports that I'm reading about? Definitely not these. All dense and resilient.
"Scritchy"? I really don't think so, but will find out later in the week or maybe next week.

Updated sizes:

1/1: 22x41
1/2: 24x48
1/3: 26x49
3/1: sold

Great brushes. Do you bowl or face lather ?

I've owned the Rooney 25-26 mm 3-band in faux ivory striped but had to sell it as it was too floppy for face lathering.
Now only own 4 Rooneys (one a Rooney made TF&H)

Thanks Claus!
I usually face-lather.  Sometimes I palm-lather to start then still face-lather a while (usually, if I do this way).  Never with a bowl, except when a particular soap requires it (that's a long story, what I mean is: for soaps with the bad/dud reputation, current GFT/C&E/etc. and former Pen's/Floris/etc., you can actually make a sustainable lather in the bowl if you first load a ton of soap in the brush…. which is very interesting because I don't like to shave with lather I make in the bowl with "good products"… anyway, back to the point, here…).

Here are the sizes:
1/1: 22.0 x 42.0
1/2: 24.0 x 48.5
1/3: 25.5 x 50.5
3/2: 24.5 x 51.5 (higher loft:knot ratio than the 3 above)

As such, the only one I would say might "not be a good face-latherer" would be the 3/2.

I ended up selling the 3/2 to my friend (who was using a beat up Parker badger with bristles all over the place, it looked like a boar... So this 3/2 is a major upgrade for him. And I sold it for $20, because I know he wouldn't accept it free as a gift.).
After a further evaluation I did find the 3/2 to have a little bit of scritch (a few exposed cut tips) and maybe a bit floppier than the three brushes I received in Style 1. So likely that was a different batch. Definitely a very different feel overall. Love all my Style 1s.

I bought some calipers yesterday so I can get more accurate measurements...so I am updating the specs on the three Style 1 brushes I have remaining.

1/1: 22x41
1/2: 24x48
1/3: 26x49
Happily the lofts are lower than what I eyed with a ruler.
