Gillette Sensor for me works great when I'm not using my adjustable injector razor.

I've been using the Mach 3 Sensitive handle (the power version) with the original Mach 3 cart and I'm really impressed. I first used the Mach 3 Sensitive cart that came with the handle but it didn't shave as close, but I've noticed that the cart that comes with the handle isn't always as sharp as the packaged carts.

The Fusion Proglide Power blades are a favorite and a very close shave, but I'm liking the size of the Mach 3 cart head.

I usually go three passes with the Mach 3 and the shave is fantastic.

I tried the Mach3 Sensitive cartridge for the first time today and it shaved pretty well, on a par with the standard M3. So much for Gillette's claims. For me, so far, the Feather FII shaves closer and with less irritation. I would change my vote above accordingly.

Wilkinson Sword Profile Fixed or Swivel with Mach3 in reserve.
I have the full Feather F System series so in future will try again a FII Neo or Samurai Edge...

I starting to think I like the Schick Hydro 5 cart the best.

Mach3 has been working very well for me. Great longevity.

Now that I have used the Feather MR3 cartridges, I would have to rate them as my favorite cart. They are very sharp and provide a great shave with no irritation. I am glad Johnny was such a good enabler. Biggrin

I used the Hydro 5 for a couple, maybe a few, years, almost every day; it was the best cartridge yet. Earlier this year, I decided to experiment with a "downgrade" to the Hydro 3; I have found that from a shaving standpoint there is no difference (on my face) between the 5 and the 3 -- and the 3 cartridges are less expensive. The 3 does lack the "flip trimmer" that the 5 has, which might be important if, as one wag has noted, you want to trim your flips.

I really wish, however, that Schick would provide a cover for the cartridge head for the times when the razor is thrown into a Dopp kit for travel. The razor itself was sold with a cartridge installed, and that had a flimsy plastic shield over the head, but it was so flimsy that, despite careful handling, it split in two about the third time I traveled with it. Now I carry the razor in a Ziplock sandwich bag inside my Dopp kit, but that is so inelegant.

I am tempted to get a Feather MR3 if for no other reason than that stand/blade protector looks as if it is up to being tossed around.

The Feather's cartridge guard is really sturdy. I was impressed. It reminded me of the old Gillette twin razor covers.

That is the only thing I do not like about the Feather FII Neo Blades. They do not have a guard.

Guard as in a removable plastic cover over the cartridge Johnny? Mine has one but I think you have to buy the FII handle, not just the carts.

I voted Feather FII by the way. I've yet to try the MR3 or the Samurai Edge and I'll revisit the Wilkinson Sword Hydro 3 at some point but at the moment the FII is where it's at.
