    I recently purchased a Stirling for my wife, a kong, if I recall correctly. She really likes it. It wasn't bad on the budget. Another option for you is to buy a replacement knot, if you like the handle of your current brush.

    From the folks who own both Yaqi synthetics are the same knots many brush makers and retailers are selling. The black base / white tips Tuxedo style comes in several sizes and shapes. I got mine from APShaveCo in Canada off Etsy when they first came out. Gives great service & hasn't shed a hail.

    I've got a Maggards Sunrise synthetic knot in my JR #130 brush. Jim did a super job of crafting a handle from a piece of cypress from my fathers orchard. We discussed the profile I wanted - like an Omega Pro #10098 - and he deliverer one of my best handles with a great knot installed. Shop his off site page for some unique hand crafted art.
