So i bought a 100 pack of Bic chrome platinum. I have to say the first shave left me pretty irritated. I pray the rest are not like this. What have been your experiences? 

Was using de89.

My experience was not that good. I've tried going back and visiting blades I tied when starting out and this one showed no improvement for me.

I chuckled at this.  BIC was very irritating to me, they just did not suit my skin and hair.  Luckily I bought a sampler pack of them.

The founder of Bic, who graciously gave his surname to the company, pronounced his surname BEESCH.  

Does Bic=EESCH?

I’ll take my response off the air, thank you.

Only one ice had worse than Bic was a Shark blade and possibly any Rapira made! Although I'm sure some if not many will disagree with that last part

Never tried the BIC, but these reviews are not encouraging.

I am a firm believer that you should always try a blade once...

They seemed extremely dull to me. It was like the hairs were being pulled instead of being cut.

That's how Rapira are for me, pull, pull, pull

Referring to my notes from when I was working through a sampler pack or ten: "BiC Chrome Platinum: Okayish for the first shave, horrible on the second go. Firmly off my list."

I don't think they'll all be like that.  I have read some good things about these blades, but I have also read that they are inconsistent.

Second shave with the same blade was a 90% improvement.

Thats the way it felt when i used a (Dorco extra) blade, It felt like being dragged face first on the asphalt pavement just a real dry drag or tearing feeling and the worst uncomfortable shave i ever had !!!

Extremely uncomfortable.  I gave them to #1 son, figuring that they would be good for his young whiskers, without letting him know what I thought of them.  I received vigorous complaints about the garbage I was pawning off on him.

In my opinion, it's a good blade, pretty sharp but also sometimes it can be harsh. I have some packages left.
