I'm thinking of buying a RazoRock Plissoft Synthetic 26mm Monster brush. I would like some inputs if you have used one. Right now I use my Muhle XL 25mm and love it. I thought I would try the RazoRock just to mix things up.
What I like about the Muhle is the way the brush flares out even when it is dry and just sitting there. It feels so good on my face. I know the RazoRock probably won't be as dense as the Muhle but how does it feel? I plan on using it mostly for face lathering.

I read that some guys think the handle is too big. Any thoughts on that?  Here is the brush I am thinking about:

I own it, and it's similar to the Stirling KONG, which I also own.

The handle is just fine for me, perfect size, not too big at all if you have large hands.

I like it, but it has problems, when going from just touching with the tips and to the splay.
It goes from ultra soft, to in fact a bit prickly, when you splay it all out on your face.

The brush is great value, so spend the $12 it costs, and accept the $12 loss if you don't like it.

Thanks for the reply Claus. So it feels a bit prickly when you splay it. I'll keep that in mine.

Ron, I find this to generally be the case with the Plisson type synthetics.  However, I also find the prickliness to be mild and manageable unless one has very sensitive skin.  It's not like a prickly badger brush.

Agreed, and as long as you don't really press it in to splay far out, you will still feel the softness of the brush.

Is the loft on this brush really 63mm as stated?  Could someone post a picture of this brush next to a more common size bursh so I could compare them.

I do not experience any "prickliness" with any om my RazoRock Plissoft brushes (I own 3, including the Monster), just cloud-like softness.

I have the Maggard brush with the same(I think) Plisson knot 26mm and A huge handle. I love the performance of this brush. It'll hold a ton of soap allowing me to make three passes on my face and head...and still dump some lather from the knot when I'm all done. As far as the knot goes, it does feel like a synthetic. It doesn't hold water like a "hair" brush and the backbone builds up when you splay it. That being said I use it more than my Muhle XL V2 syn.
Cheers

Interesting that you should say that. I plan to compare it to my Muhle STF XL which is my favorite brush for face-lathering right now.

I have this brush. I've used it a few times. It creates a nice lather in no time. It's not a shedder. But, I prefer brushes with smaller knots, 26mm is too big for my tastes. I prefer using some Omega synthetics I have to this one.
