Some time ago I switched completely to face lathering, but I have recently noticed that my Kent BK2 isn't great for face lathering, mostly I suppose because it doesn't have a lot of back bone. From time to time I now bowl lather with the Kent. Anybody else bowl lather with that sort of brush and otherwise face lather?

Much the same here - I mostly face lather but when I occasionally whip up a bowl of lather, I reach for a more "luxurious" brush, which usually means super soft and "backbone challenged".

A floppy brush is the result of less density and a higher loft.  That means less backbone but greater flow, and it's that greater flow which makes it better for bowl lathering.  A floppy brush is also softer, and can give a more luxurious feeling that many like.   I face lather exclusively now.  When I used to bowl lather years ago, I enjoyed floppy brushes, such as the Vulfix 2236.
