Thanks for the info Mark. It seems however that most of the people on the forums would prefer a higher loft on the Chubby 2 synthetic but it's still only 50mm. That's the only thing holding me back as the two I had in the past where even lower and for me that was to low to really like the brush. Still hoping that in the future there will be a few millimeters more on the loft so I can buy one again.

I am sorry, I didnt notice. But thank You for getting back to me. Thanks for the advise. Just thinking the Bristle version (if indeed a later version), may have been improved in some way hence the change of name (if it has changed). A few "if's" but maybe someone knows?
Thank You once again and all the best.

Same grammage, same amount of material, same ultra soft fibres delivering that unique Simpson Chubby experience.

Thanks you all for the kind words, we are all still relatively new to the synthetic revolution & don’t confess to getting it 100% right just yet BUT we will get there & who knows, maybe one day, Simpson will offer its entire line up in man made fibres.

It’s still very much Badger for me though (for now).

Mark :

I recently have acquired a Chubby 2 synthetic and works amazingly good.

But remember that the prototype you sent us to test had a 54 mm loft and was kind of bulb shaped.That brush was even better than the one I have right now

This is a pic of it :

Now I see that the new Chubby 2 has a more fan shaped knot and it’s loosing its natural beauty.

Anyway , hope you can consider to make the Chubby 2 synthetic with a 54-55 mm loft and more bulb shaped.Youll make a lot of people happy with that brush.
