Best brushes for a medium-coated dog?

Thread starter #1
I'm an absolute ignorant of grooming, since the only dogs I've dealth with were either short-haired or groomed by professionals, so now I'm wondering what brushes I should use for a dog with medium coat. What are their differences, and what are the best ones?
 
The brush I use most often is the hard slicker brush. I also keep a pin-brush (like a human hairbrush) for his tail, an undercoat rake that I thought would be a good idea but I never use, a mat-breaker that does get used, and a flea comb. He's never had fleas but the flea comb is very useful to get small debris or tag-along seeds out of his coat. If you have a breed that sheds, you may want something like a furminator or de-shedding comb.
