Guys,
Recently picked up M&F 3xl with 30mm knot. I am not familiar with MF XL series and not sure about the handle, loft specs. What is comparable spec simpson brush? I am afraid this will be a big brush .

Thanks in advance

I imagine a Chubby 3 is the one you're referring to...knot diameter is usually between 30-31mm and lofts 55-57mm.

The 3xl is a large brush, Mustafa. I had one in 30x50 Heritage Fan and sold it not so long ago because it was too big. It's definitely larger than the Chubby 2 you are already familiar with. I had a CH3, also, and sold that for the same reason. Think upon a 3xl as a Chubby 2.5.

Here is a photo taken a couple of months ago showing my Coral CH2 Manchurian and the Tortoiseshell 3xl. this will give you some size perspective.

David, it was actually 30 X 53mm and I don't find it so large! Biggrin

Just make sure it's a bulb. The Rooney 3XL Heritage I had was fan and was covering too much. Made a mess. My M&F 3XL is a bulb and I handle it nicely

Very nice color! I can't remember what I paid for mine. Did you buy directly from Lee? That price sounds about right for a brush of that size...I can't imagine you overpaid. I hope you enjoy it!

Exactly what I was going to advise. I don't like big brushes and I prefer fans, Is one cause and the other effect? Maybe.

I don't have much of an issue with my M&F 3XL Heritage Fan. I love it! I would definitely prefer a bulb on this knot, but the fan is just another experience. I seem to be gravitating to larger brushes! Biggrin

* Giorgio, beautiful trio, my friend! Biggrin
