Product Description

Omega recently released their 2nd generation of synthetic badger hair and it combines good backbone, soft tips and superior flow through.

Choose from black ash wood, light ash wood, Black plastic or silver plastic handle.

The fibers used to manufacture this brush are the result of years in development of innovative technology, which led to a product very close to natural fibers. Resistance, elasticity and softness, as well as the high performance in generating a rich foam, make this brush the best and most effective alternative to traditional shaving brush.

    Nice brush. Wish it were just a tad less tall. Dries fast, would be a good travel option. Probably better for creams than hard pucks.

    Thhis is a great brush!. For the money , this brush can’t be beat. Whips up a quick lather, smooth, and slick.

    Not as good as the less expensive Omega S brush. The bristles have a good feel and are soft to the face but offer reasonable firmness. But when face lathering, any pressure causes the brush to collapse against the face, with the bristles splaying. When lathering in a circular motion the bristles tend to fishtail and the result is an airy, dry spattering of lather. The brush pretty much insists on being used as if it were a paint brush, to swipe the lather on side to side. Looks nice and will be a travel brush but not a daily brush.

    This brush is an excellent alternative to a badger brush. Has great backbone and is wonderful for face lathering.

    Omega Hi-Performance Synthetic Bristle Brush with black ash wood handle is another A+ Omega gem. Lathering with Santa Maria Novella was great. Brush feels great both in the hand and on the face.

    I couldn’t be happier with this synthetic brush. It holds plenty of water, has a soft (but not too soft) face feel and lathers creams like a champ. If my eyes were closed, I couldn’t distinguish it from an entry level badger. I think it probably has enough backbone to lather softer soaps but I have not tried it with those yet and I only use my boars with hard soaps. Lastly, I have the one with the black plastic handle: Omega model # 0146206.

    When I started looking into shaving with a safety razor, I noted that the brushes were made from animal hair. And that’s fine for some people, but I prefer synthetic for several reasons that I won’t get into here.

    I found the Maggard’s site and started looking at their safety razors and brushes and liked this one. So I ordered my first brush and safety razor (the MR18). They arrived yesterday (a day earlier than expected!).

    The Omega 46206 (the one with the plastic handle) is REALLY well made. There’s a nice weight to this brush. The handle is a good size and feels great. The bristles are really nice — a good size and perform very well. I had no problems with it using a shaving soap and mug. It grabbed a nice amount of lather and it had a great feel on my face. It was soft but not too soft. I have sensative skin so I was a little concerned about it. There wasn’t a need! The Omega Hi-Performance Syntheic Bristle Brush performed very well and didn’t bother my skin in the least.

    HIGHLY recommneded.

    I prefer synthetic brushes for their low maintenance qualities. I have an Omega 643174, their Top of the Line Artificial Badger (AB) line that has been discontinued for their Hi-Brush series. I wanted to see how the new line is and picked up the Omega 46206 (Black Plastic).

    The one thing that popped out to me was that the handle is larger than what I perceived with the image. That is not a bad thing as it feels quite nice in the hands.

    As for the bristles, they hold a good amount of water and are a good in-between of boar and badger.

    If you are familiar with the previous AB synthetic, with Boar being the most stiff (1), and Badger being the least stiff (4), the AB would be a (3) and the Hi-Brush would be a (2).

    If you are familiar with only Boar and Badger, with Boar the most stiff, and Badger being the least stiff, the Hi-Brush would be slightly less of center, leaning more on the stiffer side.

    Bottom line, for about $20, the brush is fantastic. It has good backbone and can handle both soaps and creams, it tackles face lathering with no problem, it dries quickly, and Omega makes a quality knot and overall product.
