Sabini/Rooney finest syle 1 large
Simpsons T3 Super
Plisson 12 HMW Horn (presently for sale)
Plisson 12 EW faceted horn
Rooney super style 3 small super
Sabini/Rooney real ebony style(?) super small (used as a travel brush)
EJ silvertip medium
Omega silvertip horn large
Omega silvertip horn medium
Muhle-Pinsel silvertip horn
Savile Row 3118 (travel brush alternate)
The best, in my opinion, all-around brush is the Sabini/Rooney finest with either of the Plissons close behind. The T3 is a close 3rd.
I do have Kent T12 which isn't a shedder and is the only noticeably scritchy brush that I presently own - still nice to use occasionally.
That said, I still have a fair number of brushes that i've collected and most aren't used - just displayed.
edit: Sorry for the impulsive hijack
