Since the great sale is going on at Bullgoose, I wouldn’t mind picking up one of the 50s and since I face lather exclusively I’d like to know which might have the best handle for it.

I just traded a 58 that was a perfect middle of the road size.  It was good for either face or bowl.

In the past Simpson occasionally offered 2 band brushes. Not a high volume item, so they typically used available handles that were either "best" or "super" labeled.
The 58 shown above is such an example. It dates from 2011 and is part of the famed 2 band batch Simpson offered between 2011-13.

I think the 58 is a very reasonably sized brush. I have it and find it just right personally. I believe I had a 59 for a time and found it too big then, but I think I'd be fine with it now.

Consider the 59.  It's my favorite of the 50 series.

I don't have any more 58's but I did find an extra Chubby1 and an extra Colonel. I also still have the 57 and 59

I find the 57 actually closer to the size I use most often.
