I'm planning on getting an Omega with pigs' bristle. See how that compares to the soft badger one I have.

I'm deciding between a Franks Shaving synthetic (to have one brush of each hair type) or a Wee Scott, because...well because it's a Wee Scott!
My brushes showed up and are in fact Simpson GFT brushes. I emailed Simpsona and they verify that they are Somerset era brushes. I just need to get boxes for them. They appear to never have been wet and are the real deal. Can't bring myself to get them wet yet. Might have to do some research on how to re-hydrate them, so as not to damage them. Here is how they looked when they showed up.
I didn't surrender, they made my horse surrender though.

Fad has vanished but shave will be great forever. Thanks to lessons learned at B&B !

I am not wise. If I thought I was, I wouldn't learn anything.

Only one more brush I'm looking for and that's a Shavemac D01 2B fan shaped between 18 and 20 mm. I recently bought a Shavemac 166 silvertip in 20mm (same as the 177 but different handle) and although it's a really great brush it's a little bit to soft for me.
