Furminator long hair brush on a shorthair cat

I have a Furminator long hair brush used for my previous pet who had long hair and it works amazing. My new cat is a short hair and not sure if its working as well or maybe she just doesn't have a lot of hair to be brushed off. Anyone else have experiencing using the long hair brush on a short cat. Would it be better if i got the short hair version?

The difference between the furminator long hair and short hair brushes is the length of the tines. The short hair brush has shorter tines (because the fur is shorter, so the sharp bit that's at the bottom of the tines can reach the fur) so the long hair brush will work less well simply because the sharp part of the brush won't come into as much contact with the fur.

It'll still work a bit, but not as well.
