I purchased a Cobalt CH2 synthetic on March 5, 2014 and it arrived today. I had already shaved, so I didn't get to use it. I took measurements with my digital caliper and did a quick palm lather. Here is the brush:

As is always the case with Simpson, the handle is beautiful.

The loft on my brush is 49mm.

I did a palm lather with TOBS cream just to get an initial feel for the brush. I used both rotating and painting strokes on my palm. My first impressions from the palm lather are that the brush has soft tips, good backbone and no splay. I was able to get the brush to splay somewhat by applying light pressure. The brush generated and spread lather on my palm quickly and easily with both rotating and painting strokes. Overall, the palm lathering went as I would expect it to and did raise any issues or concerns for me.

I plan to use the brush for three consecutive days, and then post a review of it.
