Has anyone used a wcs silvertip? How would you compare it's softness to a maggard 2 band?  I've always been synthetics because of the softness for I get irritation very easily from a scratchy brush. Was thinking this would be the cheapest way to try and the maggard was borderline acceptable softness.

A buddy of mine got one and let me try it. I thought it was an incredible value for the money. He said it was a shedder. I borrowed it maybe 6 months after he purchased it (he doesn’t have a many brushes, so it was used plenty), but I didn’t notice any shedding at all for the few shaves I used it for. It had good density and had soft tips. It had more feel to it than a synthetic, but definitely not scritchy. I think they’re 30% off right now too.

I haven’t tried a Maggard knot yet, so I can’t help you there.

Yes they are, which is sort of promoting me to make a decision.

I am not sure about the WCS silvertip but I have a Stirling finest in 26mm that rivals any brush I have including a $250 declaration 30mm, a Varlet 26mm beehive, my 9 Paladins, and my 30mm Blonde Badger from M&F.  But the thing that the expensive brushes have is consistency.  The cheap ones can be extremely variable.

Have you ever used a maggard 2 band you could compare it to?
