Which common Gillette adjustable is best

Which is the best common Gillette Adjustable

I thought I’d do a poll to see what the B&B community feels is the best common Gillette adjustable; the Fatboy, the Slim Adjustable or Super Adjustable/Black Beauty? This poll is for members who have used all 3 mentioned razors and leave a comment about why you chose which razor you did. Toggles, Red Dots, Bottom Dials, etc are not included because those models are more rare than the Fatboy, Slim and Black Beauty are. I’d have to choose the Slim Adjustable as my choice because the head is slimmer than a Fatboy head; making the Slim easier to get under my nose.
 
I vote the Slim as it is a comparitively delicate and refined precision shaving tool. The Fatboy by contrast is a vulgar, overpriced, clumsy, sledge hammer, with a head that is too thick to comfortably use under the nose. Its biggest sin, for me, is that it is frankly rather boring. Don't let that put you off 😂

I wouldn’t share the same opinion, but hey, can’t argue with yours. Whatever suits you best!

I prefer the Slim. I learned to shave on a Super (which I still have), and enjoy the Fatboy as well. But I really enjoy shaving with my Slim.
 
In Gillette, vintage OC 3 piece razors get 95% of my love. Can't judge the SA, as I have never used one.

But I apparently need to contribute my 2¢ anyway.

I want to prefer the Slim to the Fatboy. It is more elegant, it is the less popular/overpriced, and the head is not so tall. Sadly, I get better shaves from my Fatboy.

Everyone's an art critic.
Fat boy. Bold, brassy, masculine. The Slim is too ladyike, submissive, under confident.
Ok, but really, Fat boy.
