Just shaved with steeplechase today. Used the sport version. I lathered with a M&F stubby 2xl. I used the Marco method and swirled for about 30 seconds. Given how soft this soap is, I probably could have loaded plenty of soap in half the time but I wanted to make sure I got plenty of soap for my first use.

At first I thought I kept too much water in the brush but the soap handled it well. It was pretty sloppy but I worked it into a nice thick lather by face lathering for about a minute.

The scent is a nice sport cologne fragrance. Which is light and citrusy with just a hint of a wood or a 'green' accord. It is pretty mildly scented, which I actually like but I can see this being a problem with others.

Onto the shave! The lather was very impressive. Shiny, slick, cushiony lather. I got a zero irritation shave which isn't always the case for me.

For me the only complaint I have about the soap is the packaging and quantity. For $11 the quantity is fine (4oz). But the tin should be a little bigger, maybe deeper to accommodate the lather explosion. Also I would really like to see this version 2.0 in an 8oz version. Maybe in a tub instead of a tin.

For me this soap is top notch and a clear step up from the current formulation of HTGAM soaps.

I'm looking forward to trying some Synergy 2.0. Just waiting for a scent that I'm interested in. The original Synergy didn't lather well for me but from what I've seen and read on 2.0 I think this formula will be right up my alley.

Thanks for sharing your thoughts on this release.

+1 exactly

Can anyone compare the texture of 2.0 to another soap?

Though the ingredients are not the same, the soap's texture is quite similar to Petal Pusher Fancies in my opinion.
