The Polo is brush no other manufacturer would make. Simpson broke all the rules when designing the Polo, as the series is spectacularly large. The 8 is the smallest of the bunch, and it sill towers over others. The handle is comfortable and large, removing any concern of lather on your fingers. The famous Simpson Best hair is in a class of it's own. No other brand has a mid grade hair with the performance level of Simpson Best. The Polo will not disappoint.
