I'm a big fan of the shedding blade/slick n easy block/curry comb triple combo. :) The shedding blade is best for huge chunks of major shedding. Gets out TONS of hair! But once the major hair is gone I move on to the curry. Gets out more of the hair that's not so loosely attached. Then lastly I use a slick n easy (or any type of shedding block) which gets out those stubborn hairs that the others won't pull out. If you just use the block when they're really shedding it gets clogged up. And the curry is just plain messy.
