The Safari's mechanism is far simpler to use. It has a big button on the back (1 inch by 1-1/2 inch). Pushing that button raises the "floor" of the brush, effectively withdrawing the pins, and leaving the hair alone on the "floor" where, like the Evolution brush, you simply remove ALL the hair you have brushed from your pet. Once you remove the hair, you just let go of the button (which is on a spring). Thus, the descriptions Amazon has on its pages for these two brushes are wrong, or at least very misleading. For the Evolution, the pins don't retract with just "the touch of a button" - it requires pressing the button AND moving the lever, nor do you just reposition the button - you press the button and reposition the lever. For the Safari, you do just "press a [big] button," but then you don't really "reposition" it, you just let go.
So, overall, the Safari brush is far easier to use than the Evolution brush. The Evolution's handle has indentations for the thumb and index finger while the Safari is basically round, fatter at the end than closer to the brush. Despite the fact that the Evolution seems to "fit" better, I think I like the feel of the Safari better. The metal bristles on the Evolution are a thicker than on the Safari. I have not noticed any difference in performance because of the thickness, though the thinner bristles on the Safari are of course more likely to get bent, but I don't think that will happen. Because the Evolution draws the bristles inside its body while the Safari simply pushes part of its body above the bristles, there is more plastic in the Evolution brush, and hence it feels a bit more substantial. However, I suspect that both mechanisms will last about the same length of time UNLESS I get so aggravated by the two step process on the Evolution I end up breaking the pin or the lever because I fail to follow the press-the-button, move-the-lever process.
The bottom line is the Safari brush is far easier to use: I can't imagine anyone preferring the approach used by the Evolution brush, though some may prefer its feel or think it will last longer than the Safari. However, even if I thought the Safari would not last as long as the Evolution (which I do NOT think) I would still purchase the Safari over the Evolution.
The fur just slides right off with no trouble at all. This seems to grab loose fur well, there is a little bit of "blow off" where the brush doesn't grab it and it falls off the cat, but compared to him just full blown shedding without being brushed, I'd say I'm completely happy.
The bristles are made of a thin metal and they are really close together. They do not have the rubber tips on the end of them so if you press down too hard, then yes it will probably be uncomfortable for your pet. But my cat loves it. He acts as if he's in some elite spa getting the royal treatment.
I'm so glad I found this and for the price you really can't beat it. I've seen people compare it to the furminator and I must say, it does almost as good of a job. I'm very happy with this and so is my shedding monster.
