Wow another great shave with the Nacet blade. Day 5 and maybe has a few more shaves in it.

That'll make virtually no difference to blade rigidity ouchyfoot. Shim normally (i.e. between the baseplate and the blade) to stiffen up the blade. Look at the diagram on this page (and think about it). The razor in the diagram is an R89 with the same baseplate rails (miles away from the blade edge) as the R41, giving the blade a huge clamp distance (this being the problem).I was wondering if blade flex was the problem, so I shimmed the top, which will not affect the blade gap, only stiffen the edge. That didn’t seem to change anything so I’m stuck with the decision if getting a fast super efficient close shave is worth the unenjoyable tugging and pulling sensation. I know this isn't just me as I have read many other reviews that other R41 owners have this exact same problem.
