It's been decided for me (though I had also come to this conclusion!) that my brushes "suck." Time to replace them!
I currently have a set of Tail Tamer brushes; I like the size of them, but I don't feel that they have really worn well. The grippy back is nice, but because it covers wood, they don't dry super-well after being washed, and some of the bristles warped and others have fallen out.
I have tried the Oster brushes (had a full set at one point), but I gave them away because I dislike the size and the balance so much.
I do have smaller hands, so many of the brushes that others love are just to big for me to use comfortably. So, what are your recommendations for brushes for smaller hands?

I use primarily the Salmon brand brushes that I think come from Hills. Someone else I this board probably knows more about that then I do. That said, I like the size and the fact that they have a strap also. I don't know if anyone sells them as a set. I sort of accumulated mine from several different tack stores a number of years ago, and they are wearing well.
