I am perhaps lucky in that I've come to prefer stubby handles, so many otherwise attractive brushes are disqualified.
My least favourite is the Omega 49 Pro, which I find to be clownishly large, in handle and knot. Way too floppy, and best suited for a theatrical prop.

My two favourites are a 24 mm SynBad in a Blue Lagoon handle

and a Stirling 2-Band Synthetic.

Runners up:
Simpson Wee Scot

This APShaveCo Tuxedo knot set in a Barbershop handle.
I bought this before I came to prefer stubby handles, but I like the knot.
I've also refinished it since this photo was taken.
Don't chase the BBS.
Beware of Ghost Stubble - just ignore it.
