Okay, so I have a Colonel XL2 in best. Fine little brush but I'm was wondering what would be a step up in performance? I think Id like soft and densily packed  two bandish kind of brush?? I'm not looking for high end /vintage /synthetic brush that are several hundreds of euro because I still like to convince myself that wetshaving is so  economical!!

The two band brush in the picture is a LS shaving brush in finest badger with a 30mm knot.it has good backbone and nice soft tips  I really like this and i have it in silvertip as well and that is ubersoft with less backbone.these brushes cost about 45-50 $ best money ever spent  Badger

OK, you are just going to have to trust me on this one.

RazoRock Plissoft Synthetic Shaving Brush

After trial and error it is my go to, every day, brush.  I have several brushes including BNB essential, Duke (2?) Best, Polo 8 best and several others.  If I had it to do all over again it would just be 5 RazoRock Plissoft's.

I second the 30mm LS Finest brush. I've had mine a few months and I reach for it more often than my other brushes costing multiple times its cost. Best bargain bought in 2016.

Semogue make well-priced 3-band, 2-band and high-density 3-band silvertips.  For some reason,however, they don't seem to get much attention on the three shaving forums I frequent, which is unfortunate as they are excellent brushes.

My two cents.

A Shavemac 2 band silver tip. Soft tips, great density. Superb quality.
And your choice in size and handle style!

Agreed. Their quality is second to none. I still have 4 Semogue badger brushes which are used in rotation with my Elite Razor, Epsilon, Thater, Shavemac and Simpsons brushes. Semogue brushes are Very Well made. Never had a shedder. Fwiw and imo (admittedly I no longer own any), their boar brushes are every bit equal to their badger relative to overall quality. You'll never go wrong with a Semogue...

Perhaps out of your budget, but next up would be either a Shavemac 2-band Silvertip or a less dense Thäter 4125 model in 2-band Silvertip.

+1. Hard to beat the price, quality, and customization here. Excellent 2-band!
