That's my normal shave for my face.

2013 R41 with Spitfire Cap.  The rumor is that this is pretty close to equivalent to the 2011 R41.

I have an Ikon Tech.  Don't like it as well, both in comfort and results.

Depends on the face, the prep, the technique, the blade...

I would select something aggressive with a medium to mild blade.

Well, I suppose it depends on your stubble, hence the variety of replies you'll get. Since, as Claus pointed out this is the DE forum, the only DE of mine that fits the 1 WTG pass criterion is the iKon X3. I bought mine from BullGoose. If we expand the list to include SEs, then you'll have many more possibilities. They are more efficient shavers in my experience.

Agree with CHSeifert.  If a quick shave is all your after, you might try a Dorco 6 blade cartridge with some Gillette Edge Gel.

I've not tried a one-pass shave, so I have no idea. Moreover, neither of my two passes (with constant buffing) are with the grain. XTG and ATG only.
