Ok, I am thinking of getting a fun soap only brush, so it is not like I want to spend a lot. From what I have read, I am thinking of a Rooney Style 1 small Silvertip which is $75. Also, there are several 23 mm Shavemacs, but maybe getting it in a finest instead of a Silvertip might solve the situation I had previously. I had a 23mm Shavemac that I felt was a little bit more floppy than say SMF1 and much more floppy than the XXL Shavemac.
I want this brush to double up as a travel brush so I need it to work decently with a cream. The 21 to 24mm range is what I am after. I had a PJ1 that was too small and did not like.
I have read Joel's review of the three Rooneys and I like how he says it is soft. Anyone else comment on the Rooneys and how they are packed and whether they open up more or less than say the 23mm Shavemacs?
