For the time being I've settle on these brushes, each one has its own personality created by loft, backbone, density, hair springiness, tip softness, head shape, handle (obviously I gravitate toward 7s and chiefs).

What's in your current rotation?

TSN Thater, M&F finest, Paladin, WW/Declaration 1st batch, (center) Paladin, Doug Korn/Elite, Doug Korn/Thater, ATG the Rowl/Elite (I changed out the knots), Paladin.
For the time being I've settle on these brushes, each one has its own personality created by loft, backbone, density, hair springiness, tip softness, head shape, handle (obviously I gravitate toward 7s and chiefs).

What's in your current rotation?

I have been wet shaving for only a couple of years, so I look forward to building a great shaving den. I have four brushes at this point: an Omega 49 and 98 boar brush, a Parker Chrome Silvertip Badger brush, and an AOS Pure Badger that is small and I use it as a travel brush.

That Omega 49 is a fine brush and great value.  It's a classic.

Thank you, I agree. I spent some time with it this evening with a good soak and a practice later. I like to use Van der Hagen soap for practice. I tend to use the boar for soaps and badger for the creams.
