Interestingly enough, I just purchased an original Sensor the other day - I wanted something for when I was in a rush and for when I fly w/o checking bags but I didn't want the 3 or 4 or 5 blade monsters. I'm interested to try it and see how it shaves after not using one for a long time.
Interesting theory about Gillette dulling down their older blades as new models are introduced - I've often wondered about that myself.
I guess the patents/licenses have expired on the Sensor head so other companies like ASR can make those now?
Shouldn't that be more bestester a man can get?
IMO, the original Sensor is the best of the cartridge razors. However, I've found that the generic replacement blade cartridges manufactured by ASR are far superior to the Gillette cartridges. I suspect thet Gillette dulls-down their blades as new versions are intoduced to encourage users to trade up.
As Count Floyd would have said: "Scary"Sure, that's easy to say now, but when I was writing what I wrote before, there was no Fusion in sight.
Now, knowing what we know, the Mach 3 is bestest-er, and the Fusion is the bestest-est.
QUIZ: How many blades will be on the bestest-est-est-er razor?
