I have been shaving with my Cobra for a couple years now, I love it so much I bought a few of them as backups.  I had pretty much stopped buying and testing blades/razors because I was pretty satisfied, but for over a year now I had liked the idea of a king cobra/ufo combo if I was lucky enough to get my hands on one.  I had read a couple times that people thought the king was slightly smoother shaving and I really didn't believe it.  I was fairly certain it was the exact same head - boy was I wrong.  After a king cobra/UFO combo came up on the BST the other day, a friend quickly alerted me and I snagged the razor.  Last night was my first shave with it and I have to say it seems slightly less aggressive and a bit smoother, but it also gave me probably the best shave I've ever had.  A super close shave, I really didn't expect it to be any different.

Are the heads actually different, or is it simply just having a different weight/handle that changes how it shaves?

I love this thing!

For me it's a nicer shaver then the standard Cobra but then I got the Rx, end of story.

For me, it's the other way around, the Classic is smoother and gives me a better shave. However, my experience is similar to Snuff's, in that the Rx is one notch better. 

Congratulations on finding your "Holy Grail" razor.

The rx must be something else! Guess I'm going to need one.

I shaved with the RX loaded with a pro last night.
Beautiful shaver, just need a few more shaves with it to nail the angle exactly. Glad I bought two.
No2 will be available for sale after the original has gone out of production for a few years. That ought to take care of my retirement.

Curiosity got the best of me and I pulled out a super to give a try.  I bought two packs of supers at one time and tried one in the Classic Cobra and quickly had a "nope" moment and never touched them again, then today I pulled another one out and used it in the King and it was amazing.  It felt right at home in the king, sometimes pros can feel a bit tuggy with my hair.  I feel like I'm discovering shaving all over again - looking forward to trying some of other SE's I have in the mail.

same here! I thought I was the only odd one. I found the classic to be much smoother... not sure what I did wrong! Maybe it's the weight of the handle that makes a difference.. anyway I am very happy with my shaves from the Classic
