830 is an 1305 with 10% more hairs if I'm not mistaken.

Personally I prefer the smaller lofts (50mm vs 55mm), so that means the 620, which is actually my current favourite brush.
It will get very very soft (but can take a long time to get there).

The 620 is what I ended up ordering. Of course, I'm pretty sure the others will follow at some point. But in the meantime the 620 seems to be the favourite amongst face latherers.

I had a 620. Great face lathering brush, that eventually got soft and was a real pleasure to use, until it died after a couple of years use. It would kill the lather after the 1st pass. There’s a thread here somewhere that instructs on how to clean & revitalise brushes where this occurs, but after several attempts I gave up. Still worth buying for £15, I enjoyed & ultimately got vfm using this great brush.

You're actually not the first saying that a semogue died after 2/3/4/5 years of use. I have lot older omegas that still performs like day 1 (of the break-in period). Nevertheless, I couldn't bare the weight of my curiosity anymore. Besides, that is probably one of the perks of owning more brushes. They should last longer ;)

Yes I’ve also read that about Semogues in general. I have another Semogue, a L.E. which is thankfully not display such symptom, yet!. We’ll see, boar brushes have got such a lot of character, but patience is required during the break in. I think that’s part of the fun.
