Also, if any of these feel/behave less aggressively to you, please reply back on that in the comments!
Note: I would change the choice, "I haven't used any of these" to "I haven't used more than one of these" ... but I don't seem to be able to edit polls options.
So,if the rest of these on the list are an aggressiveness of 3.0 on a scale of 1 to 10 ... what should the Cadet / RazoRock Mission be? Perhaps 3.5? ... or something higher?
EJ DE89 is significantly milder than a Feather popular. To me the Feather had almost a perfect balance while the EJ is ridiculously mild making it very time-consuming to get a good shave. I've only had those two though so I can't really say where on the scale they are in terms of the rest.
