Bought this bad boy today. don’t know if Yaqi are any good but i liked the look of it. i don’t normally buy cheap but thought what the hell. you never know i might be surprised. at £18 if it’s no good i’ll stick it in the newbie box
Yaqi make very good brushes - they're a manufacturer and make brushes for numerous customers under different names. I have that brush and it's a good performer. Whilst synthetics dont break-in in the conventional sense, I find that the knots do loosen slightly after a few uses. A few brushes I was initially unimpressed with have turned out to be good performers.
I have a Cadman 30mm Tuxedo which does a great job but it is more suitable towards hard soap than croaps or creams. With a good soap it can be a lather monster. Generally though I do prefer Cashmere and Grey/White synthetic knots as better all rounders.
