I'm very late to the party. These brushes are awesome although I'm not a fan of the Simpsons Manchurian hair type. The Super arrived today, completing my lineup:

I could've saved a lot of money if I had just tried one of these earlier in my journey.

The chubby is a great brush. I do find myself very paranoid ill drop it on the bathroom tiles though.

I've condensed my brush rotation into two great wee Oumo brushes, a Leonidam 28mm and a Monster Chubby3 Manchurian bought off BST here a couple of months ago. They now sit proudly on display in my bedroom, directly in front of the fragrance shrine.

Chris, is there any chance you could describe the face feel of the brushes? They are stunners for sure.

Badger brushes aren't for me (right now, no brushes are, I have a beard!), but I'm always intrigued in the multitude of different types of knot and so on.

His insights were invaluable in guiding me to brushes I liked. Those two Oumo brushes were recommended by Boycie and I love them.

I'll have a go Shubs. Probably the first place to start is with scritch and scrub. Scritch is the feeling of prickly hairs that poke you during use and provide a scratchy sensation in use. I've disowned brushes in the past because of this sensation. Scrub is a softer, more exfoliating sensation often provide by a larger hair width - similar to a well broken in boat.

Backbone - these brushes are famous for it. They're some of the densest knots I own. The Best brush has the most scritch of the bunch but it's a softer scritch than I've experienced with other badgers. The tips were soft and it was pleasant to use. It's the type of brush I'll use on occasions and enjoy but the SiLVERTiP trumps it. I wish I had found the SiLVERTiP brush earlier in my journey. No scritch, good backbone, lovely scrub and very soft tips. It's a dream brush for me. I've only palm lathered the Super so far. It's denser than the other two as the Super hairs are much finer. It felt lovely during the palm lather and I'm looking forward to using it. I won't be able to give proper feedback until I've used it but the impression from that palm lather is that it will have less scrub than the SiLVERTiP but very soft tips.

Thanks for the write up Chris, it was a great one.

Great that you have found the Silvertip to be a genuine keeper, hope the other Chubby 2's work out for you, they are a beautiful trio. Hopefully the Wee Scot makes it to the next photoshoot, I love the look of that brush.

I have the Chubby 2 synthetic and it’s the best knot in my collection.

i own the Chubby 2 synthetic and dont really enjoy it to be honest, i prefer the Trafalgar T3 and its also much cheaper. overall i much prefer the Badgers and have yet to add a Chubby to the rotation, look forward to it.

i do own several Oumo brushes and love them as well as the Yaqi mokka express 26 mm two band which is great.

hope the future holds a hubby for me at some point, still considering 2 or 3
