It's been my personal experience that the practical difference between a "normal" Brooks and the "'presoftened" Brooks is virtually nil. I have heard others voice the same sentiments. And, apparently, Brooks has discontinued the practice.

Does anyone know whether Rebour's treatment actually made any substantial difference, as opposed to just another case of advertising hype? Can anyone offer info as to the method that Rebour used as opposed to the method of "presoftening" by Brooks?
