Yea, a quick search shows me at least 1 vendor having what appears to be a production version of the brush in stock for $24.99.

Hector do you have the muhle to compare this brush to?Not disputing the fact this may or may not be a new fiber ,just by the looks of it it would be interesting to see how it does compare to the muhle.

Regardless thanks for the write up.

Thanks Justin.  No I don't own a Muhle synth to compare.

Good review- always good to have a number of opinions IMHO. I don't own a LVL synth but sounds like a solid alternative.

More is good!

Hector's brush is 24 x 48mm.  That's a low loft for a synthetic.   I'd like to read about whether this brush has sufficient splay.

Thanks, my calipers were pretty close.  I'm not a splayer, but I'll give it a try.

Really nice the new Extra Soft by Vie-Long.
I've seen all the 15000 serie at G&C.
My favs are the green ones ... specially the first.

I'm looking at this.

Anyone has tried the Extra Soft sinthetic silvertip in 27x52mm ??
I've read good things about the smaller, but I love the bigger ones.

Anyone has this color handle, in other model too ??
Seems the color change in each brush.
I love the green, but in some pics seems to be too dark / black ...

Ive heard only positive things about it, such as it is denser then other Muhle STF alike knots and that it is more likely to be compared to chubby 2 synth. But also the handle is relatively large and better suits for bowl lathering rather then FL. Also the color of the handle is less bright and shiny as shown on G&C photos.
