If you get another WSP I hope you enjoy it. Actually I like my Stubby best WSP over the silvertip, which is actually a bit floppy.Thank you Ron for your comments. And yes, I do like my WSP black badger. I have 3 badgers, the WSP black, Hibco pure and a VDH best. And I prefer the WSP out of the 3. For me it strikes a good balance between a good broken in boar brush, like my Semogue 1305, yet it still has a good softness and scrithiness that gets me a good lather from any soap I use. A little on the small side. But she gets it done quite well. I look forward to getting a Silvertip from WSP. I have an eye out for 2 of their brushes, the "Duchess", and the "Earl". They look magnificent and luxurious. My only problem is getting them past the misses. She's a pistol I tell ya.
