Anyone here prefer an 11/16 over a 5/8 razor?

They're pretty much the same to me.

When it comes to that small increment change you wouldn't be able to tell the difference Johnny.

Yep, it's hard to tell a difference in those sizes. However, it's amazing how much larger a 6/8" can feel when compared to a 5/8". That's probably because those sizes are usually approximate anyway.

Yes, as everyone notes, the difference between the 5/8 and the 11/16 is minimal, so I have no preference.

Yes, generally the 6/8'' razors feel substantially heavier than the 5/8''...

The difference is minimum, so either can do the job well for me.

I'm going to be different and say yes, I can tell the difference. Generally preferring 6/8 and above, 5/8 is the absolute minimum for me.
