You know, I made my very valid and in some ways subjective point and disappointment known for the benefit of others in a very polite and respectful way. Then I politely and respectfully backed off. Did you really need to throw a little jab at me after the fact with the above comment about the color?Suzuki said:What I am more interested in hearing about is what folks think about the brush in terms of performance (and in this regard, I don't ever recall handle colour ever impacting how well a brush works!) and comfort/useability. As I said above, the team of dedicated folks who worked on making this brush happen spent a lot of time and energy to develop a product that we hope offers superior performance and value to our members - hopefully our members think we got it right.
