Ok I really like Astra sp in ikon tech and R41 but there not quite cutting it in my ATT H1. I know this is a YMMV kind of question but is there a blade I should try? I've got all the popular blades.

Never tried the ATT but if you haven't yet, try a Feather in your R41. Instant became the only blade I want to use in the razor. If you like AstraSP blades then check out the Gillette Silver Blues and the Lord Platinum blades. Great performers. To me anyway...

I loved feathers in the 34c and parker 97r. Them razors are not even close to a R41,ikon tech,ATT H1. I could do 8-10 passes and still needed to shave.

Lol I hear Ya. I tried the GSB in the R41 since they are my go to blade and found them a little rough. Friend of mine told me try Feathers or Polsilvers I believe. I was hesitant due to past experience with feathers being to harsh. In the R41 it was smooth as butter and probably one of the best shaves I get/have ever had. You may find they work in the ATT the same way. Someone with more experience with that razor should chime in soon enough and provide you more info than I could.

I used a feather in my ATT H1 tonite and got a shave comparable with the ikon tech R41. Just a couple cuts on mustache area. My i try a GSB or gellitte yellow or black polsilvers crystal reds med blues reg blues. I don't know what to try to see if I can get a comparable shave to the feather but without the cuts.

For the $, Astra SP's perform great. Not my favourite but find they work well in my medium aggressive razors.
