Thanks man!
[Edit sorry for the repeat question.  However, I would appreciate hearing about the ones in bold.  Thanks Mike!]

Repp, no worries. Here are the answers to your questions.

As our friend from the north said, I have scuffed a pair once with the deer bone and I have also scuffed a pair once with the edge of the horse hair brush. I have only done each once and have been more careful since. I also used to use a lot of force when brushing, but eventually determined that was unnecessary and it went through brushes faster and increased my chances of scuffing my shoes. But yes, I pay particular attention when using my deer bone and frankly I only use it when needed (creases won't come out via standard Mac method or if there is a scuff I want to remove).

Depends on the rest of your collection but I find the LWB pretty versatile.

Do you already have an Indy (403)?  If so, I'd get the Innsbrook LWB first.  I am a bit biased though, as I am a big Longwing guy.  If I were to get the Innsbrook Indy, I would need to sell my 403's.  Doesn't make much sense to have both, imho.

I have a Navy CXL indy, although I do like it, but I think it's not as versatile as the innsbruck. So I actually thought about letting go of the navy and get the innsbruck. If that's the case, I might even buy the lwb all together. thanks guys!

It's a new level of enabling these days when you are convinced to get both without anyone explicitly suggesting it. Great job, gents. smile.gif

You are able to get creases out using just the Mac method? How? Maybe I'm doing the Mac method wrong but I've not been able to get creases out without the deer bone.
