Well, I've only ever owned two pair: Promark TB3 and Vic Firth Jazz. The Promark ones are really light, and after a few years are starting to get that frizzled thing going on. The Vic Firth ones are heavy, and perhaps a bit too much for my liking. I'm going to try Vater next though. As far as those nylon brushes, I would stay away from those if you want a traditional sound. Between those you listed, I would go with the Regal Tip ones.

Ive got a set of Promark, which I love, they are light and smooth. The vic firth are heavy, but if you are looking for more heavier action, they work well.

I hear the Evans J1 Etched is a great head for brushes. It came recommended by a great brush player who passed away this last week. Soon as I can find one, its mine.

I've tried some and to me Regal Tip has the best feel out of them.

Jeff Hamilton & Clayton Cameron, both brushes masters opted for Regal Tip.

The Vic Firths feel ok to me... They're great not only for typical brushwork stuff, but also for playing them more like sticks, when you need that... and that's inclusively because of their weight.

I think another thread exists on this subject, but anyways , my favorite pair of brushes are Vic Firth Jazz. Some drummers here find them too stiff ; to me they're firm and I like the overall feel of them.

I just got a pair of the Vic Firth Heritage Brushes. I like these a lot more than the Jazz ones. A lot lighter and smoother with the weight more in the handle than the bristles which is nice. I recommend these too.
