Does anyone have size comparison photos(or for the anal retentive types like me perhaps the actual height information) of any of the Rubberset 200 or 400 brushes compared to the Adoration, Merit or C-Mon brushes?

I know the 200 series goes from 1-6 with variations in the handle size, but I am curious to know how some of the other manufacturers built their similar brushes to have a size comparison before taking the plunge/investment of picking up somethign other than Rubberset.

Maybe this will help.

Rubberset brushes: the larger barber handle is a #3 and the smaller is before numbers were used.

The Strong set in this image is the same size as the no number Rubberset.

And a variety of 400 type handles:

beautiful photos and collection!!

I recently purchased a BSB-1 replica of the 400 as my 1st venture into barber handle, but am interested in seeing the sizes of the other manufacturers outside of Rubberset to know how large their brushes are in comparison.

Most of the makers had very similar size brushes.  For example the Strongset and Rubberset barber handle brushes match up virtually side by side. the same was true for the other US/Canadian brush makers.

interesting.   I have my eyes on the Adoration, Merit, and C-Mon brushes which have the Bakelight and Catalin bases.     Some of those appear much larger than the 400 Rubberset series, but probably comparable to the 200-6 size brush.

I took this picture for you.

The Razorock 400 standing in for the Rubberset 400 which wasn't handy when I was lining this up for the snap.

Great photo. It appears as of only the knot sizes are different and the handles are very similar in height.

Yes. Knot size mostly. Although I don't know much about the different numbers in the various series. I believe the colored ones do have graduated sized handles moreso than Rubberset did. 

The weights and feel in the hand is distinctly different. The ones with solid handles are much more substantial. With a Rubberset 200, you can and I have, fill the handle to improve weight and balance. The a Rubberset is likely able to survive drops and falls better also.
