Other than a Simpson chubbys what are some of the most dense badger brushes out that can be bought new? 26-30mm knot. Thanks in advance for the help!

Epsilon brushes are very dense.  I have a 3-band 26x50 and although it's soft it has a lot of scrub due to how dense it is.

I agree, the Epsilon 3-band is extremely dense, and soft as well.

Nice comparison pic Shevek.  I just went to browse through my brush cabinet to see if I had anything else that might come close and I didn't find one. The Epsilon 3-band is one unique brush.

The 3-band is the Silvertip.

Should I get a 27/55 or 27/50. I like my omega 25/60 don't really like my shavemac two band sliver tip 26/50 as much. Guess the loft is why the smaller knot feels way bigger is cause the loft?

Nathan Clark's Envy White badger knots are quite dense and great performers as well.

Nothing like a CH 2 in density or backbone.

What grade hair is the CH2? I have a CH 2 super and I had a 30mm Envy White and the difference between the two is quite substantial.

Manchurian. Now that beings said. In this shot, the CH2 is wet/damp. The knot is substantially denser whilst dry.

The old school Rooney Heritage 3band was extremely dense, and for me perhaps a tad too much. They did get sold after all. After 2011 the density dropped. The 2band wasn't as dense as the 3band but still above average. Shavemac brushes in 3band and 2band D01 are great candidates for dense brushes. 2band D01 is insanely strong. The epsilons are great too for that on the shortest lofts. I think those overall have the vote for density done right on the shorter lofts. Rooney Finest was the best I've used for sheer density and backbone. I wish I had kept some of the denser ones for when I was in the mood for that, but on average, I've come to find that is simply not my ideal brush for me.

I love the old extra dense Rooney's. I have a heritage and a super from the old batches and they are really unique brushes. Basically fans with Epsilon-style high density. I used to own a CH2 Manchurian from a 2012 batch that also had this type of density. Soft and very scrubby, no scritch. Great brush. Traded it away and tried to buy it back recently, to no avail.
