Anybody like the Personna Twin Pivot Plus?
These are sold as the generic TracII with different labels. It just astounds me how they're only a fraction price of the Gillette Trac IIs. How are they?
I'm thinking about getting some as a travel blade.
I noticed the Personna Twin Pivot Plus work better when you scrape off the Lube strip. I feel like it gets in the way of blade exposure, and when you remove the strip, it's easier to fiddle around with the angle. The Trac II handle feels like it's in-between a DE and Cartridge.
Anyone else feel...
I noticed that I can get a ton of these Personna cartridges for very cheap compared to the Gillette Trac II.
Does anyone actually like shaving with these? Should I also consider the Dorcos from Family Dollar or maybe the Humble Twin from DSC?
I decided to get some Shave Secret for like $4, because it is accessible in my area.
Anybody use this a pre-shave? I thinking about massaging a little onto my face and then lather my cream on top of it. I use an SE, so I need maximum protection.
I noticed that I have to still do 3 passes with a Trac II, similar to a mild DE.
It's blade geometry makes it a little less precise than a DE, but I like the fixed head and being able to control the angle somewhat.
I someitmes get the feeling that Gillette is making these blades not last for as...
I got this cheap India handle to try them out. It looks like the original one in appearance. Does the weight of the handle make a difference?
What about Personna...
Does anyone here use the Trac II or Atra systems from the 70s as a daily driver?
I find them comparable to a mild DE, and I usually need to do several passes with them.
It's just hard to find 2-blade razors unless if they're those junky plastic disposables
