So I got to try a Voshkod for the first time today and I have to say I think it might be the best blade I have ever used. Just wondering what other people's opinion is.

One of those YMMV type of things.  I tried the Voshkod a few years back and it was one of the worse shaves I've ever had.  I have not tried another since then.

My best, go-to blade.  Used one today in a Gillette SS Adjustable, TOBS Avocado Cream, Semogue 2013 SE.  A close, comfortable shave.

It has been quite a controversial topic. Voshkods are legendary for being  sharp on the Internet yet have not been working for everybody here. I do like mine, have done a few dozen shaves with them. Good results so far

Between the two my choice would be the Repiras. IMO they are just a notch above the Voshkods.

Voskhod, GSB, Personna Red have been my top 3 for awhile. 7 O'clock blues may have joined them.

My favourite go to blades. I have now almost 600 in my stash. Last order I added some of the other Rapiras - so I will compare them all sooner or later...

I think you have way to many. If you need some space I can store some at my house if needed.

After trying a pack with various razors I come to the conclusion I don't like these blades at all. They seem to be harsh no matter how I shave with them.

Voskhods are my go to blades right now. I also got the $5 eBay deal for 100 blades.  I have had 1 or 2 duds so far, but for $5, that is expected.

Russian blades follow the tradition of robust, mass produced products with performance  suprising superior products. Think of a  Tiger tank
facing six T 34s in mud. There are subtle differences that seem to make each one either a dud or a winner with each user. Your best bet is
to solicite a few samples from members and try them out. I found it took only a few shaves to sort my favourites out.
