I've been using an Omega boar (the Proraso branded one from Target) for the last several shaves. So far I'm underwhelmed.
I don't seem to get the same mounds of lather with soft peaks. The lather I get seems wetter and evaporates on my face. I think the problem is too much water. When I shake out the brush, it seems to retain much more water than my badger brush. I'm not sure how to fix that.
The other thing that bothers me about the brush is that it leaves my face feeling slightly irritated if I use a scrubbing motion with it. Maybe that will go away as the brush softens with repeated use?
