Boar - short and scrubby lofts are best! The best of the best I had to loft and set myself.
I have four badgers, one horse, a couple mixed. Gave the synthetics away. The second-raters are just here to remind me that boar is incomparable. OK, a couple badgers are deeply appreciated gifts. One is a Simpson I took in trade just to give a minimum of justification to my overweening (but completely correct) arrogance about boars, even in the face of the cash-splashing Simpson fan club.
I have great sympathy (but no personal understanding) of anyone who needs a soft brush. Grow up and get a boar! Ten bucks, you can afford it.
Maybe I should go back and edit my prior post into all caps? Anyway, here is the first string. That NOS Ever-Ready will wash out eventually, but it is still scrubby for the moment. Oddly, these are probably the cheapest brushes I own.
A Two Band, a Silvertip, three boars and a horse. That is my present rotation. I have a white tipped two band coming and it will replace one of the boars in the rotation. I do favour badger hair a little more than boar. The horse is very different than boar and badger also an excellent brush.
