100+ shaves with Omega boar. Currently in a DIY handle using same loft as original 108 brush. Scrubby! I bowl lather and after soaking brush under tap and some serious whipping to create lather face feel is surprisingly scrubby. It is still part of my rotation but I would imagine face lathering being an uncomfortable affair. And to compare all my other Omega models have been softer than this straight out of the box and I suspect this is due to sample variation rather than a plan from Omega to create models with different feel.
