I've been hearing and reading that Plisson synthetic is the brush of the GODS. I've recently watched a video with a guy saying the Nathan Clark Ubersoft is the same or a little bit better than the Plisson. Can anyone that has both or has had experience with both shed some light on this?

Hey!

I do have no experience with the Synthetic brushes made by Nathan Clarke and the socalled 4th gen synthetic material coming from China yet.
Looking forward to hearing from these just as you do.
4th gen lineage refers  to the fibres  known before in the Mühle Silvertip fibre brushes, which are different from the Plisson synthetic hair.

The Plisson has been  called "brush of the gods"  boldly because it has opened a class of its own. It is different from conventional brushes:
Synthetics need little soap and lather very fast. In addition, the Plisson has very soft tips, with which no natural hair brush can quite compete. 

I for one cannot lather with any natural hair brush as well ( fast, efficient) as with a synthetic. Many soaps allow me to use natural hair brushes. It has been stated on the forum quite a few times  that any brush works, also on the more demanding  soaps.  On that I am still working. 

Long talk, short summary: Buy a Plisson or buy both. You do want them anyway. Plisson Synthetics as sold by L`Occitane stores used to be inexpensive. Just checked in the US store and no Plisson synthetic... hm?

I forgot where I read it, but someone reached out to L'Occitane and they said they will be bringing back brushes in time for Father's Day

I have heard the übersoft is the same knot as the whipped dog synthetic. It gets mentioned by the reviewer here:

This new brush with a Plisson synthetic knot was just created for me by Rudy at Ultimate Pen Designs (ultimatependesigns.com). He did a great job IMO. Regarding new brushes from L'Occitane, they told me they would have it out in the next few weeks for their fathers day sale and to keep checking their web site.

Thanks.  Fortunately, there is a store about 45 minutes away.  I'm going to call tomorrow.
