This thread the wet shaver's Festivus or the airing of grievances. Right, I hate how capricious my badger brushes are. Sometimes I get copious amounts of lather, only to struggle to make half the amount next time. A bad lather pisses me off more than anything. I wind up relathering with my trusty shynthies that never ever fail me. That's why nine out ten times I've been using synthies for a while now.
