Does anyone have this in the new black and clear handle? I would love to hear some feedback and see some pics. The ones on the website are always so flat.

This, after a couple lathers: it's slightly softer-tipped than the standard Plissoft but with similar splay, backbone and glue bump. Lather-making is easy. The knot coloration is more like an Ubersoft, with finer silver-gray tips. They really glom together when wet and need a vigorous shakeout and run over a towel before any semblance of the original conformation comes back. The handle is medium-hefty and much easier to grip than the original chrome with less tendency to slip in hand when wet. Good brush, and a competitive synthetic.

A neighbor was nice enough to do a rush photo job, so I can't really complain about the photo quality. (Yeah, I can. Sorry.) The new Silvertip Plissoft on the left, an Ubersoft II knot, and a Doug Korn custom D7 with standard Plissoft knot. All 24mm:

Ron, I don't want to derail this thread, but your Plissoft D7 in grain ivory looks great.

Thanks, Ricardo. Doug did a great job melding handle to knot. This new RR handle is higher quality than I thought it would be, too.
