I purchased a Maseto (24) months ago and found the brush to be quite excellent soft tips with a light touch of soft stiffness and good backbone and density, no shedding after the initial lathering. I later ordered a knot (24) and asked Rudy V. to put into a WW. The Black MS measures 26.75 in dia and 54 in loft, the WW measures 26.03 in dia and 51 in loft (the knot came 63 in loft). Great brushes for double the price.

I own two and plan on getting two more. The one on the left is the synthetic and the other is the 30mm Finest Fan shape. The next two will be a 24 & 26mm in Silvertip.[Image: a15834d375f7c160a22d76bb8b31d78b.jpg]

I would love to see a comparison on these as I've heard the 30mm and 24(26) mm are not of the same quality.

I have to wait until I get a new Purchase Order approved. But when it happens I will post it here.

I purchased the extra dense  26 and sent it off to Bob at Elite who created a handle for it. Bob got back to me and stated that he could not put the knot into the handle because of the knots density it would require a 30 or larger opening, the handle could not be adapted to accommodate that size opening. I had him sent the knot and handle back to me. So at the moment I can't report on the quality of the extra dense 26.

I have two 30mm brushes (Finest, Silvertip) and two 24mm brushes (both Finest).  The 24mm brushes are very nice and maybe a bit less dense than the 30mm knots - but still dense by any measure.  The 24s are set a little higher than the 30s and therefore have a little less backbone but still quite nice.  

Each of my brushes have lost 8-10 hairs.  The 30s seem to have settled down and have been used 4-5 times.  The 24s have only been used a couple of times so we'll see if they also settle.  Unless they all surprise me and become "shedders", these knots are proving to be very high value and might be good candidates for future customs.

Well I guess this speaks to the knot's density.  Smile
