I will say I almost gave up on my 2012 TSN LE mixed brush, but I'm glad I gave it the 20 or so lathers it needs to relax and soften a bit on the face. Now I also have the 2012 SOC SE to fill that part of my rotation.
The SOC SE is some brush! I should try the TSN SE one of these days as I think I would enjoy a smaller mixed hair knot. I also have a Barbear Classico Mistura Semogue SE coming to try a lower loft mixed hair brush. If the SOC SE relaxes a bit with some use, I think it will be a difficult brush to beat. Got to love those Semogues.
Let us know how it works for you.

This thread got me all SBAD-dy. Since becoming aware, I now own three Semogue boar brushes and really enjoy each one for it's unique characteristics; a cherry SOC, a 1250 and 1470. I'd like to try a 1305 but I'm put off by the bogus bristle tinting. Italian Barber has a custom version of this model with blonde bristles, but I'm not thrilled with the custom painted handle. Gee, if only they'd make it with blonde bristles and a natural wood handle, I'd snap one up in a heartbeat (who makes decisions on TSN LE brushes?). You never know, there may also be a Semogue super badger brush in my future...

I've been using the 1305 for a week and noticed it takes to water more then badger. Seems to like being soaked. It is exactly what I wanted for hard soap. After I am done, the bristles look like it went through a blender. When it dries it comes back to its regular shape. I think I will buy the SOC brush. I find these brushes are more to my liking then my expensive badger. They have body and lather very well. Lost a couple of hairs but nothing terrible. This table is a real education for those of us with no experience in Boar brushes. Thank you for taking the time to put it together.
