I have a 2011 R41(purchased in 2011 too) and have had some good super close shaves over the years but also quite a few fairly rough shaves. In contrast I have owned the SS Lupo 95 SB for almost two years and I don't think I have ever had a bad shave with it. For an efficient razor it is incredibly forgiving and intuitive. It also seems to work well with almost every blade I have ever tried in it whereas the R41 is much picker on which blades seem to work well in it. I also have the Game Changer .84 SB and it is also a very forgiving easy to use razor but not as efficient as the LUPO 95 SB. My preference is #1 = LUPO 95 SB, #2 = Game Changer 84 SB, #3 = R41.
