I am re-knotting another brush, and this time I plan to use a 24 mm badger knot. I have a Maggard 20 mm 2 band that I put in a Made Rite handle, and I find that knot to be great but just a bit small. So the obvious thing would be to buy the Maggard 24 mm 2 band. OTOH, I have heard so many positive things about the Maggard 2 band SHD that I am wondering if I should give that a try. Has anyone used both? My chief concern about the SHD is flow through. One of the things I did not like about my Duke 3 was that it was difficult to get the brush to release lather. I don't have that problem with the 2 band, and I wonder if the Maggard SHD would also have that issue.
