TSE did a review on the is the Plisson dead, or something like that. He mentioned PAA having some Plisson type fiber brushes but hadn't used one himself I don't believe. If you like the handle and Plisson fiber you should go with it. If you want a cheaper alternative then see my post on Stirling Synthetic Arrived where I mention a few different options with Plisson fibers. I can tell you that I have a 22mm Plisson and a 26mm Stirling, both sizes that are offered by PAA, and they both are fantastic performers so I would imagine the PAA would be just as good but with a fancier handle for sure.

Thanks. I already have a Stirling synthetic as well as many other synthetics (uber soft, whipped dog, plisson, satin tip,Edwin Jagger ) . The Stirling is a very good brush at a great price. 26mm ubersoft is my favorite, soft with backbone, has it all. Just wondering how the Crown King stacks up with those.

It sounds like it is the same Plisson type knot, and PAA even mentions that in the description. Please report back if you buy it, I'm sure it will be nice.

I heard the Uber Soft is the same as the WD. Is that true? The WD is one of my favorites for the same reasons you mention for the Uber Soft.

WD is very similar and an excellent synthetic but the 26mm ubersoft is a few notches better
