Today, I was experimenting with some of the cool toys I purchased from WCS. Included was a palmolive soap stick. I was amazed at the amount of lather it created when paired with a wee scot (best badger) - it gave me 3 full passes worth of lather as well as a ton of lather left inside the brush. I haven't touched my boar in a while so I decided to experiment with the boar and the palmolive as well. I could NOT get a decent lather at all. Has anyone else noticed this? Can you guys try it out as well and see if its a -me- problem? From what I noticed, it appeared to just not have enough product to lather up. Does this mean a badger brush is much more efficient at creating a nice lather? I did two trials back to back after this, and the results were the same! The omega boar I purchased a while back could barely get a few suds with the same amount of soap as the wee scot used to make a 3 pass +.
