I will be flying into Austin, TX. and want to mail some blades over there, I don't want to buy just a 5 or 10 pack I was thinking more like a hundred pack. What blades would you recommend I get if I'm looking for something just as smooth or smoother than the red pack Personnas (I already have a hundred pack of red pack personnas). I have tried feather too sharp, Astra good, derby bad, voshkod good for 1 shave, Crystal ok, Supermax titanium good, Trig too sharp, Merkur horrible.

The same muddy green label - Astra Superior Platinum
The Bleues are great blades and manufactured in the same St. Petersburg, Russia plant as the legendary Swedes and Iridiums. Some say the same blade but with different coatings (much is written on this if you care to do some research...)

how thick would you say your beard can get, because if it is on the side of think than you're going to want to steer clear of sharks, horrible ATG with tough beards.
I'd go with these.
