All my custom badgers are shelf queens. They sure do look pretty. 

However, it is my synths that get all the work. Glad you are enjoying yours.

I use a RazoRock Monster (26mm) and it is indeed a fantastic brush at a bargain price point.  Under £20 in the UK, can't get fairer than that Smile

I increasingly use a Chubby 2 synthetic instead of one of my 2-Band badgers.

I just used an EJ silvertip synth this morning for the first time.  Very impressive - amazing face feel!

I love high end badgers. Have for years. Total package as an art form.

Modern synthetics just make better lather. Love my badgers but they are 2nd tier now.

Like many, love my silver tips but synthetics work great and I love how quickly they dry.

Just click on the black square with the "i". It will then allow you to add a picture. No joining anything necessary.

It is just all in the wrist, my friend, then the lather will come. Biggrin

I'd like to try one of the Plissoft brushes but the handles don't look very ergonomic (or attractive).

I am not sure if you have tried a 7 style handle but these as of late seem to be the best balance of heft, weight, thickness and grip. But if I were to get one off IB, the Bruce handle is boring but seems to be simply the easiest to hold in my opinion. You very well may have different size hands and fingers so your preferences may vary.

Custom handles are great for the synthetics to get that right fit. And Celestino is right it's all in the wrists. Badgers are wonderful but I tend to baby them and that's tough rushing out the door in the am! In Ireland right now and it's just great to throw a few synthetics in the bag. Makes it fun and easy.

Just buy a bare knot from Maggard's and find someone to make you a good-looking handle. Problem solved!
