which buttercomb to buy?

I have the CC wooden pin brush and petco comb. I am getting ready to order a new Buttercomb. I am between the 005 and the staggered one, I think #11.

Can someone tell me which would be better for me? Peanut is a cotton ball and even tho I keep him in a puppy cut and brush him regularly, he mats pretty easily. does anyone have an opinion which would be better for me? TIA!

I'd definitely recommend the CC #005. I have both, but rarely use the #011, which is heavy and great for really bad matting, but not used otherwise. I wish I had save the money from that for other things.

I love the one they dub as the longtooth comb. I think that is #005, but I don't have the site reference handy. If you get the longtooth buttercomb, you won't need another body comb for the life of the dog... assuming you don't lose it.

I too thought the staggered was great at first, but really I rarely use it. The tines are thick. I'm going to look for a comb that has finer tines-I think that would cut through the matts better (unless I'm using it wrong). She has sheeps wool. I hope Mig's coat is silkier.

I ended up getting the 005, that's the one that has gotten so many good reviews. Can't wait to get it!

Natalie, I think that is the CC #005, if you look carefully it will have the number engraved on it. That's the one most of us really like.
