I haven't tried the vector but I have one of the yaqi clones which I like. I have a twig and get good shaves from it.. I really want to get a Thorn and see how it does... I have a one blade also and recently heard of a "hack" that I think Subie did where he used a regular Schick injector blade in it and its supposed to be excellent to use ( I haven't tried the hack yet ).. I also have one of the early versions of the hawk and it really does well also , And I have one of the eco too that uses a half DE blade and its good also... Well I just wanted to mention that stuff BTW.... Good luck to all of you with figuring out what's best for you !!
