Okay, here I am the contrarian again, but I varnish with cheap foam brushes and achieve good results.
The trick is to use the "point and tip" method just like when applying nice finish paint.
Apply the varnish in short up and down stokes, then tip it out with long opposing strokes, from the wet edge back to the already finished area. Keep moving quickly to maintain the wet edge.
Don't try to re-use the brushes. Once you're done for the day, dispose of it properly and use a new brush for the next coat.
P.S. Another source of bubbles can be a hot surface. MAke sure you're not varnishing in direct sunlight, and it's preferable to have ambient temps falling rather than rising.
