Alright, I've read most of the post here about this new brush. It's good, it's no good, the loft is too short, etc., etc., etc.

Here is my question and it can simply be answered by taking part in the poll.

You can check more than one box. Example: If you like the brush but think it needs a longer loft, you can check both boxes.

This is for those that ACTUALLY own one of the new synthetics. If you do not own one, do not participate because it is just speculation if you don't.

Johnny, don't the last two options mean exactly the same?

I believe you're right. I will take out option 5.

You could replace it with the option "loft is too long", but I don't think anyone will check that particular box! Biggrin

Johnny, I'm not going to vote because Simpsons got mine perfect and it isn't indicative of actual production. It'll throw off the numbers.

And if I had to speculate on what others have, well, that's useless and not what you're looking for.

I checked off both liking the brush and preferring a higher loft. I find the brush quite good as it is, but would like to see a loft of 52-53mm, which is what most Chubby 2's seem to be set at. That slight increase in loft would address some of the issues raised about the brush not splaying enough.

Like it.
Well made, as beautiful as its badger cousin and a welcome addition to my den.

And to me,loft is exactly as expected for a Chubby.

I am really looking forward to seeing a Colonel 2XL in synthetic with a loft 5 mm higher and a smaller knot (<27 mm), to add some variety, just as I have in my Muhles.

... approx. 84% (based on 12 respondents) are liking or satisfied with the current offering.

We can't be too disheartened or disappointed with those statistics.

YMMV as always Wink

I have to admit I was a bit concerned when I realized, after I had ordered the brush, that the loft had been changed from the testers version. Turns out that I need not have worried. Works just fine for me using a combination of circular and painting strokes while face lathering. I would still like to try that sort loft in a fan shaped knot though.
