Which Buttercomb?

Hi! Now that Bowie is 14 months old, almost full grown, and I assume blowing coat, I'm in need of a Buttercomb refresher course on which one to finally buy. I've been doing good keeping him in a full coat, knock on wood and as always appreciate your opinions!

I got the 005 as it is what I have seen recommended here. I prefer the 000, though. For me, the teeth of the 005 are too long, and the teeth on the coarse side are so far apart that I don't use that side at all.

#6 for dirty sports and face, feet and tail. #14 works really well for the body because the teeth are just long enough to get to his skin.

I have both the 005 and the "ring" which is only five inches long. I found the seven inch 005 too big for my hand; I think the teeth spacing is almost the same, but smaller size works better for me.

Hi, thanks for your replies! I'm having trouble finding the #14, #6, and "ring" online. I was able to find the 005, 000 easily...any ideas?

This site may help. I have found them on Amazon too.
