Hello out there

I,m looking for a comparison/review between the Elite 2 band Manchurian and Maggard SHD 2 band 26, 28 knot (fan or bulb or both) density, backbone, tip softness. Thanks

I have a ton of Bob’s 2 band Manchurian fan knots. I also have 4 Declaration knots in various brushes. I just got several of the Maggard SHD knots in 24, 26 & 28mm sizes for some Grizzly Bay handles and some Mozingo Brushworks handles. So far I have mounted 2 of the 24mm and 1 of the 26mm. I have to say that these knots are better than the Elite Manchurian knots and neck and neck with my Declaration knots. They are simply outstanding!! Even mounted at a higher loft than I like, plenty of backbone. Extremely soft gel tips and they are extremely dense. I just can’t say enough about these knots. I have no idea where they are sourcing these from but..... WOW!!

Please note the unusual size of the knot base of the new batch. For example, the 26mm knot needs a 29mm hole (So I understand the hints at Maggard).

This provides "surprises" in the bonding of the handle and knot.

It looks like the SHD knots are only in fan. Or did I miss the bulb shape somehow?
