I would disagree. The balance point on my Progress (YPMV) is exactly where I'd expect it to be, and gripping at that balance point allows for excellent pinky control on the bottom. That's one reason I don't want no Mergress.The progress is an outstanding razor.
P.S. I should note that the Progress is a very head heavy razor, with the balance point only a few mm away from the head. The Mergress will be more balanced due to the heavier adjustment knob, although I can't vouch for the balance as I don't have one myself.
