I too am debating whether to buy that one or pay the little bit extra for the Chubby 3. Well, in 3 band anyway. I don't like their 2 band.

Have you tried any recent 2 band? For me it is softer than their Super 3 band grade.

I don't know how recently it was made, but purchased within the last year, yes.

I have to agree 3 band is not softer then 2 band, but I haven't tried it on chubby, maybe it makes a difference what kind brush it is.

What a beauty!

Teiste, i do consider two-band Simpsons better than three-band, personally; better backbone and the softness is miniscule between the two, for me.

I feel like I maybe haven't tried the new 2 band hair from Simpsons yet and have only used some old stock, even if purchased more recently.

As it relates to Simpson brushes - yes. Softer, more backbone, better flow through. I cannot imagine how dense a Chubby 2 in Super must feel and Best is too scritchy for me. The softest brush for me is still Thäter 3 Band. Beats everybody else, including Vie Long etc. Thäter 2 Band is also very soft but comparably so to Rooney Heritage and the current Simpson 2 Band. YMMV

I had a chance to use one of these (Chubby 2 band super) recently and if I decide to purchase a larger brush, it will be the one.

Thater 3 band and shavemac silvertips are FANTASTIC brushes.

I think I know which ones are the next ones to get.Biggrin

Thanks for your answer.

Don't know about Shavemac (never tried one) but my Thäter 3-band is pure luxury... just love it! Heart

I view Thäter brushes among the best - maybe the best - brushes out there. Craftsmanship, consistency of knots etc. The 3 bands are amazingly soft (somebody described them as "made from unicorn mane" Biggrin). In my experience only shavemac regular Silvertip and SR brushes (made by shavemac?) come close. In 2 bands Thäter just delivers the right balance between softness, backbone, density and flow through. While Rooney Heritage and current Simpson 2 band are equally soft, Thäter is the best overall package...

I really enjoy my Simpson 2 band (I have eight by now) but they are all behaving very different (that can be good and bad). Thäter brushes are consistently of high quality (of course also there you will find the occasional shedder etc.).

Considering the latest Simpson price hike they are also economically a less expensive high quality alternative...

Of course YMMV

Hi German what do you think about your new Chubby 2 2band?
Is the brush too big, too dense for you?
Thanks.

Still using it for a few days... Before posting something more refined... But no, the 2 band is not too big (does not bloom much) and not too dense...
