Which do you prefer? Know what the difference is (other than price)?

Take a look.  There's a blade guard on the MGs.

I like to use a guarded blade on my Asylum RX. Otherwise, Feather Pro Supers are my go-to.

Regular pink mild (not MG).
It is the only AC blade worth doing, for me.

Well yes:  the outside packaging clearly says メタル  ガ—ド (metaru ga—do = metal guard, or MG for short).

I prefer the guards of the two. I didn't care for the regular Pinks.

Ya, me too.  Just did a bit of testing this past week, and the ones with guards work better for me.

Generally, I am at best semi-literate, unreliable in reading characters that are outside of Toyo Kanzhi:  the 1,850 characters that (when I began to learn Japanese, and until 1981, when the list was updated) officially defined “literacy” in Japan.

To be fair, even if one does not read kanji - the pictures on the package clearly show a guarded vs. unguarded blade.

Pro Supers for me, too. Guards are a YMMV thing; I get better mileage from an unguarded blade.
