Hi, I would like to buy a new Simpson shaving brush, but I haven't made up my mind wether to buy it in Super Badger two band or three band.
I don't have any experience with the simpson's super badger three band hair grade, so I would like to know about it's "behaviour". About the two band I think I know enough, because I own two of this brushes.

3 band will be less soft at the tips, will have less backbone, splay more and is likely to be denser, I.e, less flow through... (depends on the chosen knot).
If that is what you look for then get a 3 band super... Otherwise stick with the 2 band...

What German said. When I'm looking at Simpsons, I'm either looking at best badger or 2-band super.

Which brush are you thinking about getting?

I have owned 3 Duke 3 in best badger and 1 in super badger two band , and I prefer the best badger ones.However , Simpson is using a new Super badger two band which tips are extra soft and is very nice.If you can get the new Simpon super badger two band hair , then , no doubt about it then , and go for that one.

I agree with Teiste.

My new Emperors are of the SiLVERTiP variety, so not marked 'Super Badger', and they are great. Compared to my earlier 57 Super it is a bit more resilient and I feel the tips are a tad softer.

They are a bit more elegant than two band, a bt finer maybe. But their feel, backbone and flow through are top notch.

I'm a 2 Band fan for sure...although for pure "over the top" luxury, my Chubby 3 Super 3 Band is pretty sweet.

I would do the 2-super in a Tulip 3.

I would say 3-band if you're going to bowl lather, 2-band if you'll face lather (or both).

i would suggest the 2-band if you go with the Tulip 3 for face-lathering. Good luck.
