How do you like the Pinaud Clubman synthetic?
I do like using it primarily for creams at home and face lathering when I travel using a soap stick, or get back to traveling. It took a little getting use to as the loft gives it quite a bit of stiffness. It does build later quickly and well. The size is great as it does fit inside a cardboard toilet paper roll center. Happy I have it.
 
Own four brushes; use three of them in regular rotation. Two Shavemac badgers and a Chubby 2 in best. The fourth is a large Kent in Silvertip and is too big for regular use.

That is a really nice and somewhat manageable collection. I have two RV brushes and a number of Simpson brushes as well as the Omega Jade brush. The Omega is my only boar and probably my least favorite. That being said, the Omega is very different from the other brushes and provides a completely different experience. Though a different lathering (I’m a face-latherer), it always provides a good lather and shave. Based on my experience, looking at your collection and the many excellent brushes you have, I would not get rid of the Omega Jade.
