That is correct! We loved the round rinse ports on the Windsor base plates, but we had a lot of feed back saying the same thing you did. Sometimes it was hard to rinse out the plate while shaving. The new rinse ports solves this problem.The picture ...!
I have to give it up for you, the blade gaps on the new Windsor baseplates look like perfect to me! And as much as I love the sexy Corvette exhaust pipes design on my plates, the new rinse-slots will improve effectivity. (I mean, no issues with the SSR1 and SSH1, but with the narrower SSM1-plate I found rinsing to ask for a bit of effort.)
On the upcoming OC-bases for the Windsor, am I right to assume that there will be one for 'heavy' or at least 'regular-heavy' (H or RH) use?
