Is the current batch of Thater 4125 2-band knots as soft-tipped as earlier batches? Same question for current Thater 3-bands.

I just bought a 2-band one last week and it should arrive mid next week so I could let you know when I get it. I don't know how long the batch runs are but I bought a three band around Christmas time and it's the closest thing I have to gel-tips if it isn't.

I just received a 4125/1 2-band last week. Can't say how soft earlier Thater batches compared as this is my first one. But going from reviews and descriptions that I had read, I would say they are just as soft. I was impressed with the softness of mine and it was consistent with the positive reviews that I had read. I see now why the Thater two bands get high marks on reviews for softness.

Also, I was happy with the backbone as there were a few that thought these brushes were floppy. This brush is not floppy IMO. Floppy to me is a Simpson pure badger. Although it doesn't have as much backbone as some Simpsons in Best, I didn't think that was a bad thing. I've had a couple of Simpsons that have so much backbone they feel pointy. Not so with the Thater, which is nice and soft, adequately dense and doesn't require a ton of pressure to splay. It's been a joy to use and passed my moan test "Mmmmmm, Nice!"

If they aren't, its only because the older ones have use on them.
