I just received my Feather folding SR and took it out for a shave using Feather Pro and Kai mild blades.  Feather got it right with this razor.  I own SS and DX in folding and Kamisori.  I never liked the SS.  To light and a pain to find the right angle.  Coming from straight razors it just doesn't fit my face or hand.  The SR is more like the DX but more forgiving.  It also has about the same weight as the DX.  If you felt like I do that the DX can be too aggressive and the SS difficult to find the right angle, you're going to like the SR.  Going to put my SS's up for sale, I found the perfect shavette in the SR.

Seriously thinking of purchasing the SR. I actually like the SS but as mentioned here hard to find the right angle.

I also wish they offered other colors. A dark blue, tortoise, or white would be nice.

Agreed - they seem to lack some creativity there - the SS was what - lime green, pink or black as well, later with 'wood'.
Only thing I can think of is that the material used doesn't work well with all colors - or the razors are just marketed differently in Japan - i.e., not so much for male wet-shavers.  

White would seem to be a pretty obvious call though.  They did the DX in white IIRC.

Bump - anybody else used this razor?  I'm really rolling around with getting one.
