what paint brushes to use

I am taking in the Bob Ross wet on wet style of painting and need some equipment. I know I can buy Bob's line of products and will for the majority of the supplies that I need but I find that 25 bucks or so for a 2 inch or 1 inch brush is kind of expensive.
I know that his brush line uses natural hog hair but I was wondering if I have to buy natural hair brushes to get the same effect as him, or if I can use a synthetic brush instead. I know synthetic brushes are cheaper than natural hair but you guys are more experienced than me and know more about equipment.
What are your thoughts on the natural hair vs. synthetic hair brushes?

At this time there are many types of branded brush in the market but i use utrecht series brushes, this series all brushes is very soft and smooth.
i think sable brush is better
