I have owned a Frank silver tip for about a year and use It regularly. This morning was the first time it shed no hairs. It has a tightly packed knot, so the shed hairs haven’t made much of a difference, but all that shedding can’t be normal. I am hoping that the no shedding today signals the end of it.

There’s not much chatter about this brand on TSN. This is good to hear. Good luck with the brush!

I have had one in High Mountain White badger that's comparable to a Chubby 2 or 3 in size for well over a year. It is an unbelievable performing brush for the price I paid and has never shed, at least not enough to notice.

Is this the same company as Maseto?

Sudden shedding in a heretofore "solid" brush is most often caused by built-up soap/hard water scum around the base of the hair.  Soaking for about 30 minutes in a dilute vinegar/warm water solution (~1 part white vinegar: 10 parts warm tap water) followed by a quick washing with a good shampoo with conditioner will usually solve the problem.  Hope that works for you as well.
