I just got this from Jim at VB a couple of weeks ago. It has been used about 6 times and is just loosening up. What an awesome feeling brush, but having just received a Grosvenor 2-band I think I'm in love. The Rooney is in excellent in box condition and the actual measurements are knot=24mm and loft=50mm. You owe it to yourself to try out a Stubby 2 and this is the 3-band hair which is noticeably nicer than the current 2-band offerings IMHO. $130 shipped/paypal.
