I am thinking about buying a Frank Pur-tech synthetic in a 22mm knot. The loft size is 55mm. Is that about right, or is it on the long side of normal? I used creams and would like to be able to bowl and face lather and apply with painting or circular strokes.

In use, they feel smaller than a comparable size in badger. 22mm in badger would be ~24mm in the syn. Your loft question, in my opinion is on the long side.FWIW.
I've had two & to me they aren't ready for prime time yet. IMHO.

I have three of the older Frank Shaving synthetic brushes, all with 24mm X 48mm knots. I think a loft of 51-52mm would be ideal for your use with a 22mm knot.
I have to say that these brushes I received are the softest synthetics I have ever tried. I am not sure what generation of hair they were using almost 2 years ago, but I find them better than some of the ones they have now and easily as good as the Muhle Gen2 hair.
Good luck to you.

I agree with Celestino that a loft of about 52mm should be a good height to give an appropriate amount of backbone. I use a Muhle synthetic as my primary travel brush which drys fast.
