SE1 takes professional supers also.I just ordered the ATT SE2 yesterday because I have never gotten a in stock notice from Bullgoose, even though I submitted my email address the very day Dave (@skypsyd) posted his first review.
The SE2 is the open comb version, apparently accepts Pro Super blades, and since I already have the full line of DE baseplates, I decided this route because I already have handles. I entered my email address again to see if I ever get an in stock notification, but this has been pretty disappointing as I was really looking forward to getting an Asylum.
I tried the Feather Pro Super before realizing that the Asylum wasn't designed to use it, as that had been my go to blade in both the Feather SS and ATT SE1. It loaded but I could tell it was going to be balky coming out. The shave was quite aggressive, and somewhat edgy. When I finished it wouldn't release without using a knife blade. That's the only other blade I've tried besides the base Feather Professionals.Regarding blades for the RX. Is it limited to only 2, the Feather Pro and Kai Captain Titan Mild that will fit? I know that the Feather Pro Lite will not fit due to the size and spacing of the tabs on the RX. I'm wondering if anyone that has some of the other AC style blades that also has an RX could comment? Specifically I'm wondering if the Kamisori blade will fit, or the Kai Capt original? I understand from other comments posted that the RX was only designed to use those 2 blades (Kai Mild and FP), but I'm curious if anyone has tried any others yet? Thanks.
I've used both. Both are obviously stiff, sharp blade systems. The Feather AC style SE is less maneuverable due to the significant extra width. Of course it shaves a wider swath per stroke, but while I can take an extra stroke or two with an injector it is difficult to compress the AC-type blade to get into certain spots. The Feather types are all heavier than a Schick, which some enjoy. There are presently more AC-style blades available than classic injectors, which allows some degree of "adjustability" with them with respect to aggression in a single razor.I bagged mine the moment it came on. Now waiting with my fingers crossed.
Can anyone tell me the difference in shaving experience between the Schick injector and an SE razor please. I use and love my E4 injector with the Chinese Schick blades, but as of yet I haven't used an SE. I have the RX, the El-Jefe and the Hawk in the mail, all arriving late this week or early next.
Unfortunately, I signed up for in stock notifications for this razor twice, and have not received a single notice of availability. Checking their website this AM, I see that these are apparently in stock. I have no doubt that this razor is very well made, and is a very solid performer. However through the ensuing weeks I ended up getting the ATT SE2 for almost $100 less than the RX. I already have four baseplates, all in open comb, and three handles for the ATT system, so adding the SE2 to the stable was a logical approach to get into AC style SE shaving. I have only shaved with it twice, and both times I was hurried and did not spend a lot of time with the shave. Normally I am a straight razor shaver, so getting a smooth quick initial BBS shave after two passes has merits for me. And this is exactly what I got with the SE2.I tried to resist but couldn't. These have been in stock for a much longer amount of time than I anticipated. I could only let it sit in my cart for so long without pulling the trigger. Can't wait to give it a whirl!
