I have the ARC long handled weber and I am wondering if I should buy the bulldog with DLC head..

Should I? Would I see any diff? Should I do it just to have the bulldog handle?

Wondering the smae thing, except I have the DLC coating. If I'm not mistaken, I believe the head design is the same?

The heads are identical. Both coatings are fantastic. The arc coating might be similar to the Feather AS and iKon OSS. The DLC is a first as I have never seen it on any other razor produced.

It is always worth having both no matter what item you are talking about. Biggrin

This reminds me of a mantra we have over on bikeforums, in answer to the question of, 'How many bikes does one man need?'

The answer, of course, is 'N + 1', where N is the number of bikes you currently own. Biggrin

We're a bunch of enablers here too.

I have both and it's a tough call. I have the original handle with both because I love the length of it.

As mentioned, the heads are the same, the only difference is the coating. If I rub it against my face lightly without a blade in it, the ARC seems a tad smoother but it's too subjective to seriously make a call.
I'm sure it's psychological but I prefer the DLC version likely just cause' it's cooler to me! I had to have both uh.....you know.....OCD related and such. Tongue

BTW, the ARC coating seems different from the Feather SS. The ARC is a true coating just like DLC, etc. The Feather seems to have a fine, blasted, uncoated SS finish just like a lot of the modern wristwatches.

I'd say that if you are gonna get both Weber's, get one with the Bulldog handle if you don't already have a Bulldog to transfer onto the head. (Not sure if anything else fits). That way, at least you'll get a different feel and you can switch the handles with the different heads. Biggrin

"The Enabler". Hmmmmm....Tongue

I already have the DLC head on a BRW handle. I'd like to do the same with the ARC head. Wonder if they will just sell me the ARC head? I'll shoot them an email to find out.

Just pulled the trigger on a DLC bulldog. Really liked the looks of it, plus I'm a fan of all stainless. Just had to do it. Can't wait!
