Synthetic Brush pics needed

I'm trying to compare the sizes of several synthetic brushes.

Anyone have any pics of the Maggards 26, RR beehive, RR Bruce, RR Big Bruce, and RR synthetic silver tip next to each other ?

I only have the first two that you mentioned. The Maggard 26mm Granite and the RR 28mm Beehive. The big red one, RR F-400 XXL 34mm beat up the RR Bruce Brothers and the synthetic silvertip and took their lunch money.....

I have the beehive and have used it once. My favorite synthetic brush. I have the maggards 26mm too. Have you used the F400 yet or the razorock beehive? can you compare the two?

I used the F-400 last night. What a monster, but yet very comfy to hold. I load my brushes very heavily, 30-40 seconds without hesitation. This brush had enough soap to do 3 shaves, 3 passes each. Excellent backbone and very soft feel on the face with the right amount of loft, it splayed very nicely. It does have a little more springy feeling to it than I would like, but then again, this thing is massive. I liked it. The Beehive goes tonight.....

Maybe you've answered this some place else and I've missed it, but is there a reason why you don't just load pix into your posts? You can drag and drop them into the posting window.
 
I use an iPad. So sadly that's not possible.
It's not obvious, but it is possible.

You can upload pictures from an iPad to your "media" files/albums and then add the picture to a post from your media files/albums.

To upload to your media, click on the Menu in the upper right hand corner of the page, scroll down to "Add Media," and then follow the prompts. Once the photo has been uploaded to your media, click on the camera icon in the "Post Reply" window (i.e., where you type) and add the photo.

I've used the RR Beehive for 2 straight shaves and it has performed really well. Just as good as my Maggard 26mm Granite. Splays very well and with a good loading of the brush, 3 pass and then some easily. It's a good size, practically as easy to hold as the Maggard and believe it or not the F-400 is also comfortable to hold. It's just a massive brush. They both have soft tips and nice backbone for working into hard soaps, croaps and creams. Just make sure the container or bowl is big enough for the F-400.
Otherwise, I like the Beehive very much. Holds water well, does not fling any soap when your face lathering, and is very, veey soft on the face. Best $14.99 I've ever spent.....
