yeah man,sadly it happens and sometimes we feel ripped off....:mad:
If you are interested in a silvertip brush, the Semogue (2015)from Vintage is very well made.I use it with Tabac with out any problems
excellent cheap quality option.
what is the difference in the "HD" version?
the HD version is more packed than the normal one,but still the 22mm knot.
i'm just getting into brushes so i'm a little slow here...
what is the advantage/disadvantage of that or is it just a personal choice based on feel?
For me is just a personal choice.I like super or finest badger better than silvertip(in most of the cases)I like brushes with a good backbone and not floppy at all,as I use hard soaps and face lathering a lot.Others like floppy brushes as they use creams and bowl lathering or just like the feeling of softness on their faces.
The more and more I use my boar, the more I'm liking the stiffness over my silvertip. I'm pretty much just face lathering now. In fact, even today I face lathered cream with my ER 100T boar. I do enjoy how nice the silvertip feels, but I seem to have been getting better performance from my boar. If I still bowl lathered (soaps or creams), I think the silvertip would do me better....
i should have been more specific what does the fact that it is more packed to do the performance?
well,its more packed so can hold/release more water,so technically you should be able to create more lather from it as well as to have a better backbone,but thats "technically since I havent tried it.
I find that the more dense the knot, the less floppy the brush is. What does this do to performance? In my experience, not much. You can get a lather with either. Hell, I've seen a video of someone generating a lather with a cloth. It all comes down to preference. I prefer a nice firm brush for my soaps, and a softer brush for my creams. But I have been able to also generate a lather from soap with a floppy brush, and a lather from cream with a dense, firm brush.
I will say, though, that the denser brushes tend to be lather hogs - the lather gets sucked down into the core of the brush, and you have to coax it out for subsequent passes.
gotcha ya...thanks guys...i am going to buy a brush but there are sooooo many to choose....trying to do all my research and not make an impluse buy, except that special edition one in the vendor corner is calling my name
sorry man,I missed that,what special edition,the Semogue horn handle?

I can tell it is!Those brushes are really well made.I have received today a Semogue boar brush and its a beauty as well as nice built.Im gonna purchase more Semogues for sure.
