    In absolute awe of the new G5A

    The initial setting was just the "Your recommendation" option on the site. I don't know the precise depth in millimeter. So X+5 or 6mm. Giving it 7 or 8 palm lathers made a difference, too. Contrary to popular belief synthetics do break in. Especially dense ones.

    In absolute awe of the new G5A

    Loft length is so subjective that it's hard to to give a firm answer. Evo is pre-set, where the G5A you can have Andrew custom set to whatever loft you prefer for free, so I suppose G5A would be my recommendation to anybody particular about loft length. Neither brush is floppy at all.

    Mine was like that at first, too. After a dozen uses it opened up some. Especially after I set the knot for a higher loft.

    Synth Brush Preference: Different or Imitation?

    They should not be compared to badgers. They're their own thing They're very soft, more efficient (with both time and soap use), can take a lot of abuse, don't have to be broken in much, don't have to be soaked, dry faster, are inexpensive, cruelty free. I prefer them to naturals for these...

    Barrister and Mann's "Excelsior" base has been discontinued.

    Yeah, SoftHeart is the better base and, with the new version being much more hard, a sound decision on Will's part. Now if only Rod and Mandy would do the same with their mutton tallow base...

    I absolutely love my SynBad. The Yaqi Moka Express is more dense than the SynBad?

    Vitos Extra Super PIF. Win a chunk!

    I'm in! I've heard amazing things about extra super. How would you compare the smell to Cella?

    Fine Clubhouse and Barber Blue

    Yes, 5 oz. tallow formula... probably technically a croap though a bit on the hard side for a croap. Made in Italy. Excellent base. I'm very impressed.

    Feather SR and SS Razors

    I love my SS but the bump makes ATG tricky. I have to flatten it and produce downward pressure. Has anybody with an SS experienced this? Does the SR design solve this?
