    Still in. Since you did not ask/hint for the item you did not break rule #5 "Gifts. You cannot ask for, solicit, hint at, etc., gifts in any way." Enjoy the rally.

    Most Overrated and Underrated razors in your collection?

    For me: Overrated: adjustables (FatBoy & Slim). They both are great looking razors, have a nice weight to them, but for me my open combs, Superspeeds provide better shaves. They are nice to have in any collection. Underrated: The GEM SE'razors. They provide fantastic shaves.

    Confession: I no longer enjoy using natural hair brushes..

    Nope, for me the only benefit of a synthetic is for use during travel as it drys quickly. I enjoy using my boar, horse and badge brushes at home.

    I cannot find "BudgetShaverGuy" on the list of drivers and cars. Are you doing the "play at home" version? Still 1 out 67 in.

    Is it weird I find no enjoyment out of modern DE razors?

    Very true. I also have tried some modern razors, and have no interest in them. The new razors I have tried do not offer as good a shave as my vintage razors. A good example of the YMMV motto here. What works well for some does not work well for others.

    Is it advisable to bowl-lather cream with a boar?

    I used my boars for soap and creams. No issues with using a cream and boar brush in bowl lathering. I have GFT Spanish leather, TOBS Avocado, Arko and Derby shaving creams. The only brush that tends to hold on to lather for me are my badger brushes.

    I keep coming back to the classics.

    So true, I also find that the classic's work better for me. Tabac, GFT, Proraso, Truefitt & Hill, TOBS, Arko, Pinaud Clubman, Myrsol, Floid.

    Time to face reality. I'm not a soap guy.

    Perfect example of YMMV. You have found what works best for you, that is great. I have a few creams I enjoy (GFT Spanish Leather and TOBS Avocado, & Eton College,Proraso Blue), but mostly I use puck as I prefer them.

    Which Shaver... Modern/Vintage

    It will take time to find out which works best for you. You can get the modern razors cheap on the BST. For me the vintage razors (Old Type, New Type, Superspeed, Aristocrats, Tech's etc.) give much better shaves than modern razors I have tried. To me the modern razors are thick and clunky...
