I am pretty sure that some other brands are as good, the same, as the Audioquest. I did, however, try a less expensive knockoff that "looked just like" but it shed and side by side seemed more cheaply made and the bristles were more coarse. I chucked it out.
Could well be that the Maplins one you have IS just the same as the Audioquest but, just saying that there are some cheap knockoffs out there that are substandard.
