Yaqi High Mountain White impressions

#1
I used this brush for two weeks now. I'm mostly boar brush guy and only have two badger till now. New Forest brush that was too floppy for me and Simpson Duke in best that is very fine brush. The Yaqi HMW is not dense like the Simpson but not very far behind. It blooms to a huge size and while feel very soft it has a good amount of backbone (not like a boar) and a little scratch. I'm really enjoying this brush. It's not Simpson but it cost only $40 and feels like $150. I need to try bowl lathering but I feel it more suitable for face lathering.
Good purchase. Yaqi-24mm-Aqua-Highmountain-Silvertip-Badger-Hair-Shaving-Brush.jpg_640x640.jpg

You should have no trouble at all bowl lathering with your brush if that's what you want to do :) P.
