Hey, everyone. I've always used synthetics because of their softness. I get irritation very easy and a pure badger brush is horrible for me so I haven't touched badger since the pure. However I've been really wanting to get into badger lately. I got a 2 band maggards and it was right at the line for what's acceptable. And yes I bowl lather. I was wondering if anyone has tried a west coast shaving silvertip? My understanding is silvertips are the softest so this seems to be the cheapest way to try it before spending a good amount of money on one. If anyone has used a wcs silvertip how do you feel it is on softness compared to other brushes such as maggard 2 band or paladin, declaration grooming, etc. The goal is to get a paladin or declaration grooming. I also have my number for wolf whiskers coming up in a little over a month so there are the tgn knots as well but I just don't know enough. Thanks for any input

I can't comment on WCS brushes as I don't have one, I'm quite familiar with the Maggard 2 band, I have one brush with a TGN silvertip and the tips are much softer than the maggard, the trade off is backbone, my TGN was set just right so it's not floppy. Now once you're starting to talk Paladin or Declaration it's a whole new ball game. I don't have a lot of experience with these brands and You would be well served by going to websites and reading about the knots because batch variation is huge. I have a Paladin from the Dec 31st drop and that would be the closest to my Maggard 2 band, backbone is similar, but it's a denser and softer knot by far leaps and bounds ahead of the Maggard. I'm waiting on my B7 Declaration knot currently. Things change over time, As and example I have a few year old M&F Blonde I love and a finest from around the same timeframe that I'm not thrilled with but it works great making a lather, as I understand it current M&F finest are like the older blondes. brushes come up all the time on BSTs and sometimes it's because somebody wants more backbone, sometimes it's because someone wants less backbone. Just give a brush a chance I find the better the knot the longer it takes to break in and show it's full potential.

That was helpful thank you.
