Looking locally at something and Vshod has a good range of Zenith brushes. I like long handles and they come in cool barber shop styles.

These 26mm badger knots look ok. Just not sure if they are good bang for buck being $160.

Alternative a Billygoat turned resin handle and the Silvertip badger knot option. That at the $140 range. That knot questionable..might even consider the two band/silvertip synth option even.

Anyone got any feedback about either of these two options? I guess Yaqi badger the budget option.

For that sort of money I would be recommending a handle turned by one one of the local artisans and I would be getting a knot from @Srdjan. Maybe a little more than the Zenith but better value for money IMO and miles ahead in terms of performance.
+1 on both suggestions.

I've found a lot use FB to sell brushes which I don't use. Does Forgotten art use a site as well etc? At least I can order Billygoat easily off Etsy.
