I currently own a Rooney 3/3 in super and a pure badger brush (Swissco I think) that came in a set my wife got me from Drugstore.com when I first started wetshaving. I love how soft the Rooney is but wish it was a little rougher like my pure badger for the times when I want to face lather. Speaking of which the 3/3 is a monster and too big for me to face lather with. Actually the 3/3 is a little too big for me overall. I am considering offering my Rooney 3/3 for sale or trade and would like to know what would be a good brush for me. So can anyone suggest a brush that has a smaller knot with decent density that is good for creams (about all I use) that I can face lather or bowl lather with. It doesn't have to be as super soft as the Rooney 3/3 but I still want something really soft.
