Advice on Yaki Barberpole Wanted

I have always wanted add a barber pole brush to my collection and saw there was a nice Yaki synth or 2-band badger on offer. What is the expert opinion on these and which might be better? I like both Synth and Badger and already have both types but it’s the lovely barber-pole that is enticing me (24mm). I don’t want anything too scritchy or floppy so I need advice!

The barberpole with mew brown knot is a wonderful brush! The handle looks great and it's very ergonomic! Three knot is probably my favorite from Yaqi!

This brush was part of my recent Yaqi brush batch I ordered.

Another round of Yaqi synthetic brush reviews...
 
I have the barber pole with the 2 band badger knot. I like it a lot. It's a great value, has soft tips (not scritchy at all) and good backbone for a badger.

The Yaqi two band finest is an excellent knot!! Excellent value for money.
 
Wow...you guys are not making it easy for me! I have a RazorRock Synth which is great..and a Simpsons Badger. Most of my preferred brushes are boars though. Still, that barber-pole is calling me..and the price is right for both options! Tough choice here!
 
Backbone should be the least of your concerns with either Yaqi 2 band or Yaqi tuxedo. I have boars that are floppier than the Yaqi 2 band and i consider all of the Yaqi tuxedoes i have as having slightly more backbone that i would like. I don't have the barbepole model, but i have i think 8 Yaqi models (2 band, tuxedo, plissoft) and lack of backbone is the last thing that crossed my mind with them. The tuxedo should have more backbone than your mew brown.
