I don't have roto brushes (yet). The white nylon is my second
brush, after the Swix medium-coarse bronze oval brush I replaced the rectangular one with, both of which take off almost all the surface wax.ETA: Also, I use a pretty fine structure on my skis, except one pair that has more of a medium structure. That might explain why you get more results with your white nylon.

an SVST brass/horsehair combo, but at 12" long it may not meet your needs.
So do you all use a sequence of roto brushes the way we mortals do with hand brushes? I confess I tend to get overwhelmed shopping for brushes because the options seem to be endless--3, 6, and 10mm bristles of black, blue, or white nylon, fine or regular steel, or HH.
As far as compatibility goes, the websites say Toko, Swix and Red Creek are compatible, but SVST handles/brushes aren't compatible with any other brands. Which makes sense, since the SVST brushes are 90 or 150mm, and the others are 100mm or 140mm for the double brushes. SVST and the other brands seem to cost about the same, so for those of you who use SVST, is there anything in particular you like about their system?
