Futur POS vs HD

Discussion in 'Double Edged Razors' started by ZiggyDeath, Jul 19, 2007.

  1. I believe I read that the Futur and HD possess the same head geometry. Out of curiosity, which setting makes a Futur = a HD?
  2. Ziggy, I own both and don't believe they have the same head at all.

    IMHO, that would be kinda like saying a paring knife is similar to a good filleting knife.

    +1 Not alike at all.
  4. Very different head geometry. But: I use an HD quite often. When I started using the Futur I (sensibly) started with the setting 1.0. I went to 1.5 after a couple of shaves and stayed there for quite a while. I now use it at 2.0. So this HD user likes the Futur at 2.0 (after learning at 1.5). YM, of course, MV.

    The Progress and HD are comparable in geometrical design.

  7. ah ok i guess i that's where i got the wrong impression from

    good thing i never picked up a progress, while i do get decent shaves out of my futur, my HD has never treated me very well

    I can get great shaves with both the HD and the Progress. However, I leave the Progress set to either 3 or 4, and never change it. So I usually pick up the HD. Well, I did. Now it is the 38C!
