Simpson Chubby 1 Super - Chunky Curls

Good day, everyone!

The subject of this post is something I’d expect would apply to a Thater Silvertip, but to my not at all unpleasant surprise, my Chubby 1 in Super appears to exhibit this phenomenon as well: curly tips that render the brush texture chunky (in clumps) when dry, but (as I’m sure I’ll find out next time it appears in the rotation) super soft when wet.

Just out of curiosity, is this typical of Simpson brushes these days? I’ve added a new Classic 2 and Duke 2 to the ‘ol rotation and their tips are just, well, regular (while performing beautifully as well.)

Cheers!

Curled tips are usual in brushes with very fine and soft tips.

There are a few course hoard I. That knot that I would trim out. I isolate these with a tweezer and then cut them as low as possible. I few stray hairs can really effect the feel of a brush.
 
It was not normal as far as I know for Simpson brushes to exhibit gel qualities but there have been posts lately that have suggested that may have changed with the current Super grade. I do not favour the Super grade but were gel tips to be introduced to the entire Simpson range then that would stop my purchase of new Simpson brushes as I cannot abide the face feel of a gel tipped brush. Of course some people love them and they have been in fashion for a few years, I had just hoped that Simpson were not going to follow the trend. 👍

How long did you use it before you noticed the gel-like tips?
 
My Chubby1 Super Badger has the same gel-like tips and I am not happy with it.
I am a big Simpson fan and have many Simpson shaving brushes, but none of my brushes have the same hair as my Chubby1 Super.
I hope this is an exception and will not happen again.
