+1 I own an Asylum Evolution and it is perfection.
Gillette Techs can be found for a lot less than you think.

Right. Techs can be found from $8-$20, and depending on the condition, will be a real bargain. Even the Fat Boy and Slim can be found for just a bit more than, which I have bought for others at around $25-$35, not in a case.
But considering the OP is moving from a DE89, a good TTO would be a sound choice.

I like the looks of the Razorock Mamba. I understand that it is considered to be a mild razor. In comparison th the EJ DE90, is it about the same or more aggressive?

I loved my EJ DE89 until I bought the Razorock Game Changer.  The Game Changer is smoother and feels more efficient than the DE 89.  I still own both razors and I'm not sure if I'll ever shave with the EJ again.  It's nice knowing that the stainless will outlast the EJ.  The shine I got with using Blue Magic metal polish on the GC rivals the finish of the EJ.

The stainless razors will probably outlive the owners too !
