I had been using DE razors exclusively for 5+ years. Then I tried a Mongoose and have added that SE and some Gems to the rotation. Then I figured I'd embrace RAD and also try an injector. But which one? I never enjoyed adjustable DE's but might try an adjustable injector. I tend to like intermediate aggressive razors as well. Any recommendations would be appreciated.

Who makes these?  Where's the best place to get them?  How do they rate, i.e. mild, moderate, aggressive?

Schick. eBay. Moderate aggressive.
Schicks get milder the higher up the alphabet (more modern). Schick's adjustable, Type M, will give you a range of settings from mild on up.

I love my HydroMagic.  PALS are not bad either, specially the Stainless adjustable.

The PAL stainless adjustable is -- IMHO -- terrific.  However, it gives aggressive a new name.  So you have to start very, very mild, and work your way up.  Good blades include the current Chinese Schick and (if you can find them) NOS Schick Plus Platinum.   One of my go-to shaves is the PAL, set on its most aggressive setting, with a Plus Platinum.  Compares very, very well with the Mongoose or the various Cobras, which I also use.  A great advantage of the PAL, apart from its very elegant look, is that it is light.

Schick I1, I2 or L types with an extra nod to the L.  They are all efficient razors and proper form with any of them will be rewarded with an outstanding shave.
