I made a trade with a member on this site and received his brush in the mail today. When we discussed the trade he mentioned it was a custom brush but wasn't sure what the type was but he suspected silvertip. Upon first impression of the brush the tips were VERY soft. I was very excited to come home and try it and that's where things went a bit weird. The brush was very abrasive. So much so that I had to run to grab another brush to compare. I broke out a Super Badger and soaped it up and it was softer which I thought was weird. So my question is, what could this type of hair be? Dry the tips are very soft but soaped up and wet, it's almost too much to handle.
