Last week I ordered the RR Plissoft brush and boy am I happy.  The handle is generous in size and the knot is well done. It keeps the same feel as the L'Occitane type synth brushes, and it is larger (see specs below). This morning was the inaugural shave and it loaded well, and worked efficiently. As with my L'Occitane brush, I had more thn enough Xpec loaded to go 3 passes. 

Knot size: 24 mm x 57 mm

Height: ~110 mm
Weight: ~82 grams

Highly recommended

I got mine yesterday, but haven't used used it yet.  For sure, it ia an insanely good value for the price. The handle is good looking, and has a nice heft to it.  Nice brush.

I got sidetracked with work and they sold out prior to my getting around to placing an order. They look great and the price can't be beat- look forward to your continued thoughts!

I just found out about this brush via this thread, so missed out on the first batch. I'm on call for the second. I'm sure the price will jump, but it still should be within reason.

It's a 24mm Plisson knot. The glue bump is set so the knot feels more dense and that it has more backbone. I grabbed one for the 9.99 but honestly it's got a nicer heavier handle than the plisson. If this brush was side by side to the cade brush and both were 29.99 I would still get the razorock.

What surprised me is the handle size. Side by side with the Plisson it's about as tall. The ring sits in dangerous territory: no problems with your grip?
The RR's glue bump might make for an interesting comparison to the new Shave Revolution brush with its shorter loft.

It's proportioned. To my eye at least. I've been conversating with another member about the fibers that plisson uses.

You have the plisson in 22mm the razorock in 24mm the stirling is what 26 or 28mm? I really like the plisson fibers. I like a whole heck of a lot better set to have some backbone. Hopefully more people find the source of the fiber and bring more sizes to market. I'd like to have one in 30mm to match my Whipped Dog synthetic.

Makers aside I just want the plisson knot ,or the plisson fibers. Your just limited to who can source them.

I'm with you which is why my favorite is the Stirling. The Plisson fiber is tough to beat. I think a 30mm will come out soon, if there isn't one already that we haven't heard about. The Fauxmere 28mm is the closes thing to it now.

Otis-No problems with the grip at all. Never preferred the "Chubby" handle style because it wasn't comfortable for me. This is a very good brush. The backbone is the same as L'Occitane.

It looks to be almost exactly the same shape as a Paladin PK-47.

No surprise here, coming from a brand name that prevails on cheap imitation rather than innovation.

To each their own.  Meh.

Dodgy  The handle looks similar, but there are differences.  They both have a ridge, both have curves, that's about it.  

How is it any different then Wiborg, Vie-Long and Asylum completely ripping off big names handles, yet they praised for it?  Same as many of the brush artisans turning out handles for Nookers and then getting praised for it?   Is copying flattery or cheap imitation, you can't have it both ways.

Just once could a RR thread stay on topic, at least from the Mods/Amins?

I didn't order a RR so can't put them side by side, but I don't see it as a copy:

Huh, already out of stock.  Not a fan of the aesthetics of the Plisson Burning Bush knot coloring, but I do love the PK-47 handle.  The one pictured looks a bit squattier though.  I'm on a mission to find a good synthetic brush ...

Coming from an "Administrator", I would have expected you to take the high road, but no surprise there.
