I may be denser than most. Brush hair grading and how the different hair feels in use is still a mistery to me. Most of the affordable Silver Tip brushes I have found on the internet appear to be Super Badger or Best. Only the $200 + brushes have a really white and fluffy look to them. What I have been able to discern from the Posts I have read, is that Silver Tip, is some how more irritating in use than Super Badger or the next grade down from Silver Tip. Are the Vulfix 2234 and Muehle – Pinsel Super Badger really Super Badger or the next grade down? Am I way off or near to getting it right?
