Have you bought a 30mm yaqi?

Nope. There's no chance I ever will! In Yaqi sizing, I expect that would be 32mm or so, which will be MASSIVE, the 26mm knot brushes I have of theirs are more than large enough for face lathering for me.

I think their 30mm so brushes are aimed at head shavers, and that's something I'm into, I quite like having hair on my head. Not that there's anything wrong for shaving your head though!

These fellows seem reasonably priced; especially from aliexpress. For those of you that have used them, are they recommended? Pros?, cons?

Thanks, S.
Fantastic in every way.

I've had mine for a year now and it is as good as the day i got it. Beats the pants of any natural brush i have ever used.

No, they are not all the same. There are differences in the fibre, but the difference in fibre isn't as significant as other factors which include glue bump, density and loft height.

I have 2 Yaqi 26mm brushes. The rainbow one, and the Mysterious Space Fan Tuxedo. The latter has a lower glue bump and is a bit floppier, whilst the rainbow has a higher glue bump and has more backbone. Both have an actual measurement of around 28mm for the knot. Both are excellent brushes, but have slight differences.

I'm the proud owner of 7 Yaqi brushes. All purchased purely on how they look. Had I known there was more to the fibres (as per Donnie's post), I would have planned my purchases better.

Fortunately, you can never have too much shaving paraphernalia!

Care to share your thoughts on each of them so that others looking to buy can make a more informed choice?
