I am not a huge fan of Gillette but my favourite OC razors at the moment are the Gillette Single Ring and the Goodwill. This is assuming that by 'new' you mean new to you, and not brand new. If the latter then I have no idea
For years my safety razor of choice had been an open comb Mühle R101 (black handle version of the legendary Mühle R41), but I clearly prefer now the stainless steel Masamune Nodachi. I consider this razor one of the few safety razors that can match a straight razor shave in closeness and smoothness.
You can order the Masamune Nodachi in a version that arrives with both open comb and closed comb plates but I found that there is no noticeable difference between the two. IMO, this can be explained by the identical blade exposure and blade gap of both razor heads.
So open or closed comb design becomes merely a question of which way you prefer the lather to be discarded after a pass.
Among some shavers, however, open comb razors have a reputation for being more aggressive and closer shaving than closed comb razors.
The reason for this may be that the aggressive and close shaving R41 had become a huge success and, even though the aggressiveness of this razor was essentially a function of its more pronounced blade exposure and blade gap, people started associating its aggressiveness with the easily identifiable open gap design, which ultimately did precious little to contribute to the razor’s aggressiveness.
So, is an open comb razor better than an open comb?
That depends how you define “better”, but an open comb design by itself does not make a razor any more aggressive or closer shaving.
