This would be very well received IMO.

A blue base plate in it will look sick!

My new SE2 base plate will be delivered Tuesday. I have the first version of the SE2 so I'm anxious to try the revised version. I like the current version but looking forward to a bit more aggression in the new one. Stay tuned!

Could be a dark red somewhat like a Red Tip.

That's a very good option too.

Both options sound great!

The new plate looks shorter. It couldn't be, right?

That's what I thought. It tricks the eye.

Taking the new SE2 baseplate out for a spin tomorrow. Using a Kai Titan Mild just in case it is too aggressive for a Feather Pro. I was using a Feather Pro blade with the original SE2 base plate so we'll see. I'll post a pic of my SOTD tomorrow.

Just finally had a wonderful shave with the new SE2 baseplate. It is more aggressive than the original one but I absolutely loved it. It's extremely efficient and I felt like I was mowing down hair on the first pass. After my second pass, I had an extremely close BBS face! I used a Kia Titan Mild and let the weight of the head do all of the work. No irritation and I put it way above the SE1 and that's saying a lot. It has the same aggression as the Rx with a totally different feel. I will put my original base plate up for sale on eBay unless anyone here is interested. I did learn a crucial lesson with the first version that I will never try again. Never EVER use a Feather Pro Guard blade with an open comb SE. The Pro Guard will only be used with my Rx when I want a less aggressive shave with it. I love the new version of the SE2. SOTD pics to follow.
