Is there a reasonably priced SR worth having. I've heard nothing but Good things about them but would not want to buy an economy version and be disappointed.

How much do you want to spend? I was looking for a top-quality brush and decided on a SR, saving me $100 or more than some of the ones I was considering. Also, I got a fairly large brush and the smaller SR's cost somewhat less. FWIW, I paid $135 for a 26 mm SR.

The 3118 is about $75. That is a silvertip brush with an 18 mm knot size. The size may seem small but it is a lather making machine. I love it - it is well-reviewed here; just do a search for 3118.

There are of course some inexpensive SR's one Charles website, and maybe other places as well, I'm not sure. Best badger, pure, maybe super. These are decent brushes, I think, maybe quite good. Not much backbone, very soft, except maybe the pure.
These are not the same thing at all as the SR's that most people have been talking up. Those are the Silvertip ones. They are a QED exclusive I am pretty sure. And not sure (well not officially anyway) who makes either, but they are made by different people. And as a result are very very different brushes. The cheapest one is the little 18mm mentioned above.

I have the SR 208 and I love it. Fan shape and soft. If you like the prickly brushes this one is not for you. This brush is excellent with creams and so so with soaps. When you apply the lather you will get that luxurious feeling because of its soft bristles. My is in Super Badger. I believe it retails for $65 or so at QED.
