It feels great on your face. The first pic is new out of the box, second is after one lather next to a Vulfix 377.

OK - I am just dying to know how it works and, moreso, how it compares to your Vulfix? :tongue_sm
Thanks for the great looking pics Dick.
That thing sure appears to have opened up nicely.

I've been playing around with this thing all since this afternoon. So far I can say the tips are the softest of any of the brushes I own, very soft and they feel great on your face. I know it has bloomed a bit but it's not floppy, moppy, or foppy. In fact it would almost qualify as stiff, in that regard I find to be nearly perfect. The tips are very soft, but the shafts are not, think Vulfix vs. Shavemac.
I like my 377 because the bristles are soft, I don't like it becuase the bristles are so soft when I press against my face it splays open and doesn't really rebound. When I'm in the mood for a good scrubbing I grab my Shavemac. Its bristles are soft but not quite soft enough, (for me anyway) when I press it against my face the brush rebounds very well, it does this better than any other brush I own, but I wish the bristles were just a little bit softer. Also, I don't really like the shape of it, a small nit to pick, but pick it I must (it's kinda like a nose that way).
The V200, Shavemaster, brush from CAR, whatever, is almost a perfect happy medium, soft tips, stiff in the shaft, and very comfortable to hold. I know Enchante is marketing the brush as a High Velocity shaving brush but it works quite well with the English creams I have on hand, with and without Da Cube. If I were going to whip up a hard soap it wouldn't be my first choice, the brush is very handle heavy and it doesn't swirl in my mug like my BK8 does.
I don't know and don't really care what grade the badger hair is, it feels good on my face and that's enough for me. Right now I think you're looking at my new everyday cream brush. I need a few more days to put it through the ringer, but at first glance she's a keeper.
