We had an issue with the previous synthetic brush poll so we're starting this new one. Sorry about that.

If you could please recast your vote, we'd appreciate it!

No worries. My answer remains the same. The Plisson reigns supreme over some other very good synthetics.

I vote for my HIS XL because I like it a bit better than my Plisson because my hands are big, it whips up lather better for me, and feels a little better on my face. I would be honestly happy with either as my only brush.

It's a difficult call for me. I love the Plisson the Muhle and the H.I.S. brushes but I like the way the Muhle splays better than the others.
I have to cast my vote for the Muhle.

I currently own an EJ (Muhle), Simpson and Omega. Plisson is on the way.

Edwin Jagger (Muhle) is currently the best by far but I'll wait for the Plisson to arrive before voting.

I find the H.I.S. brush is the softest of all the synthetic brushes.

I like backbone and soft, but firm, brushes. I vote for Simpson. I also want to add that the only Simpson synthetic has been the LE Chubby 2, which was controversial due to it's short loft. When Simpson releases other synthetic models I would not be surprised to see preferences change.

I'm back and forth between the Muhle and Plisson, and have another of the STFs en route. Maybe I should just do what this guy did:

That is a great video, Ron, and good luck with your dilemma! I would just order both brushes and be done with it! Biggrin
