Im wanting to buy a brush pen; theres so many brands, I dont know wich one to get.  Ive been looking at a Tombow brush pen, I use Tombow pencils (there absolutely amazing, very smooth) so thats the one Im leaning towards.  But before I make a purchase I wanted to see if any of you have a favorite brush pen.

Zack, I have never used a brush pen such as the Tombow. From what I see they look terrific O0 To me they are waterbased and not not waterproof ink so they will actually be more of use in the watercolour section than in the pen and ink.
We do use a brush with pen and ink work but then it is with the waterproof Indian Ink.
Why not buy one and try it out before buying a lot.

Zack I bought a set of the grey tone pitt pens for notan sketches.  They are pretty firm, but nice to work with.
