I am looking to trade it for



It is an incredibly smooth shaver, but it is ever so slightly tad too mild for my taste (wow that was long).  Thought about shimming it, but I didn't want to experiment with it.
I thought it deserved to go to someone that it would work phenomenally without modifying its original geometry.
I'd rather get something that I knew has worked well with my face before, and above 3 listed razors I know they have worked very well with my skin.  I already have first two, but I don't mind getting them as back ups as they are becoming rare to find in the wild.

I thought so.  I know how much you like it, keep it!  You will regret it later.  I won't even bet on that, it would be an easy winner Biggrin

I got rid of my Mamba also. Same reason. Too mild for me. Awesome razor though.

yeah, I was going to try it with diff blades, etc, but heck, if I can trade it for something that works very well for me already, I might as well.

I am saddened to read that it performs on the mild side (which I generally stray away from with the exception of the ATT razors). It is a beauty - GLWTT!

Since you mentioned Above the tie, I think it is about in between M1 and R1.  M1 was way too mild for my face, and R1 worked very well.  Only difference is that this has a special coating and is smooth as butter Smile
