This brush was bought from Lee just a few days ago, but there was a mix-up and he sent me the wrong color (I wanted Briar and received Ivory), and so I'm letting this one go.

The brush is NEW, has never been used, and so I'm hoping to get what I payed for.

Next to a Chubby 2 2-Band, for comparison:

The price is $248, Paypal only and no trades, please. SOLD

My impressions on the brush:
The hair quite resembles my Simpsons CH2 2-Band 2013, except the handle is taller and IMO more comfortable, the hair is a bit smoother but maintains the same backbone, the knot is denser (Simpsons 2-Band brushes are not as dense as the rest of them) and, well, much cheaper.

I don't have my digital caliper, but the approximate dimensions are: 26mm knot, 51/52mm loft.


Sale price includes Worldwide Registered Shipping.

PM me if interested.

Cheers.

Beautiful looking brush. How does it compare to M&F 2 Band Heritage hair gel tip?

I'm confused. Did Lee not want it back to exchange?

First of all, thank you for the compliments on the brush.
I'm sorry I haven't been able to reply to your questions yet, gents, but I will now.

I don't own a 2-Band Heritage gel (yet Biggrin), so I unfortunately can't compare the two. If I was to compare it to my M&F Chief 26mm Blonde/Heritage, I'd say this Finest has softer tips, with less scritch, yet retains an excellent backbone.

It is, it's a Style 1, Size 3.

He did agree to take it back, but considering the somewhat already personal relationship I already have him, I chose to sell the brush at cost, an avoid the hassle on his part.

I don't have my digital caliper with me, but measuring with a ruler I'd say the knot is around 26mm, and the loft between 51 and 52mm. Basically, the dimensions are the same as this one.
I've also updated the initial post with information.

It's not, I got a PM just seconds after posting it, and the brush is now reserved.

I just sent you a PM, sorry for the delay. The brush had already been reserved, but if the deals falls through, it's yours.
