Any differences between the Whipped Dog synthetic knots in terms of face feel, softness, backbone or just a different paint job?

Do these knots have a glue bump that sticks outside the handle?

I can vouch for the standard and the grey/white. I have been using the standard synthetic for about 1.5yrs now and it is just an excellent brush imo. It isn't as dense as a lot of synthetics out there but has very soft tips and splays very easily yet it didn't start out that way. I would have to say that after 4-6 months it really softened up for me and became my #1 brush that I usually grabbed for each shave. The glue bump is there but much flatter to the handle than most I've had. The grey/white is pretty much the same as most of the tuxedo's out there. Definite glue bump and very springy and plenty of backbone, but has very soft tips. I had it listed in the BST a few weeks ago with no hits on it at all so I just threw it in a drawer and may revisit it one day again... Wasn't crazy about it as I'm just not crazy about any tuxedo's at all that are out there. They all have way too much backbone for my liking. 

Other than the standard synthetic the other brushes that are in my top rotation are a Turn-N-Shave Angel Hair, APShaveCo Cashmere, and recently an APShaveCo SynBad which are all very nice knots to use. I prefer knots that have very soft tips and that splay very easily. I find that this is what works for me and doesn't hold lots of water and become lather flingers like all the tuxedo's I have used...

Thinking of going 5mm lower, loft at 51mm, I like the handles closer to my face.
Do you use a WD handle too?

Yes, I have the standard blue 24mm handle. I don't think 5mm would make a huge difference with this knot but I'm sure it will have a little more backbone going 5mm deeper...
