Hi hotmetal,I think Saj might actually be a "head smasher"! So a nice big knot with some loft for dome foam would be my choice.
Much as it almost pains me to say, I have a few brushes but that Yaqi Moka Express (mine is the synth) is actually the one I use the most.
Finally got around to using this today,
which do you prefer?
want to try horse hair but i got a beard brush which is horse hair and its way too soft so was thinking the shaving brush maybe way too soft as well
Semogue, Omega & Zenith.
I've ordered about 4/5 yaqi brushes all synthetics but not that one specificallySaj, you should give the Yaqi Cashmere synth a go. It's supposed to be like a well broken boar brush in the use.
Also keep an eye for the Yaqi sale, they have decent badger brushes on sale for not a huge amount. Occasionally you will see a silver tip for less than £20. Send Boycie a PM though, he seems to know a lot about MIC badger brushes, I'm sure he can provide some pointers.
Btw, there is a difference between Pure Badger and Silvertip, the latter is supposed to be softer, Pure Badger scritchier.
I agree with those. IMO the latter two's unbleached boar brushes are my favourites.

What's your preference? Badger, boar, horse or synthetic?
