That looks like a great shave. I have my RR GameChanger lined up for tomorrow. Going to use the .68 series of plates. After 2 or 3 shaves with that I switch off to the .84 series of plates.
Thanks.....it is a great shave indeed! This GameChanger is a real pleasure to use especially if there's a good blade pairing.
I won't mind trying the OC/JAWS head next.
Best of shaves wishes for tomorrow with the GameChanger.68 yah!

Razor: Gem Push button- Mfg 1958-65, lower mid range, I can crank out excellent shaves with beautiful looking razor.
Blade: Gem Personna SS PTFE (2) Excellent blade, very sharp, great longevity, smooths out nicely & predictable. Excellent $ Per/Sh.
Brush: Yaqi lucky dice 26mm tuxedo knot, excellent lather creator with a lot more cloud like soft tips with a wee bit more back bone than the 24 mm Yaqi tuxedo knot, enjoy them both a lot.
Soap: Gillette Pure & Remnants of tabac- excellent combo IMO, fragrance and lather qualities. Gillette has a nice scent IMO.
Pre shave: Brush wash whole face with CeraVe hand bar soap cleanser + a dollop of clear Aloe Vera gel on the cleaned beard area.
Prep: Cold water rinse after each pass of 2 + pickups. WTG + ATG + pickups.
Post shave: Razorock blue barber with witch hazel + a dollop of Nivea balm.

Razor - Gillette Flare Tip Super Speed
Blade - Astra SP
Brush - Mojo Handcrafts 26mm tuxedo
Cream - Crown Shaving Co
A/S - OneBlade balm

Stellar shave. The Crown cream is tops. So much slickness & residual, really yogurty. The Flare Tip was so smooth, leaving my skin stubble-free and feeling great.
