I've been using a couple brushes and wanted to try something new. I've got an unknown brand pure badger that I bought from Em's Place. It's got a great handle but the knot isn't everything that I'd like it to be. A little too floppy and the tips are a bit too scratchy for me. I also have a cheap boar that I picked up at the local drugstore for $6. Cheap handle, but there are some things I like about it better than the badger. It's got great backbone and the tips are really soft. Don't like that it sheds a hair or two every shave and the bristles tend to clump. Was debating what to buy to try next and settled on a better boar as the investment was minimal (until I added a bunch of soaps and aftershaves into my online shopping cart but that's a story for another day...)
So my Omega 10065 came yesterday and first shave with it this morning. Very underwhelmed and wondering if I just got a bad brush. There's very little hair in the knot - much less than the cheapy drugstore brush. Because of that, the brush is very floppy. Also lost 5-6 hairs this morning. Anyone with this brush have any feedback for me? Should I try a different Omega, another Boar or just grab my wallet and buy a Rooney?
