    Default Whats the best Rooney Style? 1, 2 or 3?

    Hi everyone,

    I am about to order my first Rooney shaving brush. Looking to get one in Super Silvertip Badger.

    Im thinking of either the style 1 size 2 or style 3 size 2 but just cant decide...

    Is there much difference in the styles apart from the looks?

    Thanks.

    Did you look at the descriptions of Rooney brushes at Vintage Blades? (http://www.vintagebladesllc.com/vsho...me.php?cat=152)

    The differences are in the height of the handle and loft (for a given knot size).

    There is no "best." You can't go wrong with any of them. It's just personal preference. Rooney makes a great product, so just get the handle size and loft the suits you. You'll be happy with whichever one you choose.

    I personally have the 3/1, and love it.

    If I could havea ny Rooney, it would be a 1/2 in Finest. Too expensive though. The same is super is also appealing to me.

    Had to vote for Style 1 here
    This one sure is a beauty...

    Yet, I would pick mine in size 1 as I dream of it for soaps and face lathering...

    This is still a dream anyway... Oh, BTW, not that I want to make your choice harder, but ivory or ebony?

    Mine would be in black, for sure!!

    I have the style 3, size 2 from Vintage Blades and really like it. I already had a C&E BBB and wanted something a bit bigger so I went with the 3/2 instead of the 3/1. It's a really nice, dense brush that does great with soaps and creams. Because of the density, it will take a while to break in and soften up at first (several shaves). Great quality, too - I've had mine for 8 months and it hasn't lost hair one yet.

    I'm leaning towards getting a rooney from vb and am wondering, is there any difference besides the handle and knot size?

    I'm probably going to get a heritage stubby for soap/face lathering, but may splurge for the genuine horn

    My 1/2 in super is perfect for hard soaps.

    I love it!

    Another vote for the 3-1, just about perfect imo.
