@gpjoe I don't have anything to add beyond what's already been said. It's all good advice, and even though it's a lot to take in, after a while it all becomes second nature. Stick with it and figure out which grips/directions/skin stretches, etc. work for you and your face. It will take some time. I started with a shave-ready Titan PIF'd to me by another member and my first bunch of shaves were truly awful. It took around 10 shaves until it actually felt like I had shaved. It wasn't a good shave, but at least I didn't have stubble everywhere any more.
Don't try to force your shave to get BBS right away. Aim for good technique and not a good shave. The good shaves will sneak up on you before you know it.
Thanks, that's the plan.
