    A grey Gillette? I think that would be the Sensor. Which is what I am using now too. But will change to Fusion after I used all my spare blades.

    I would think that a blade shaver would give a closer shave than electric shavers.

    After doing some comparison except Gillette disponsible, Mach 3 offers the best value. The cost of the blades is lower than Power version or Fusion. And it offers 3 blades.

    Price comparison:-
    Mach 3 blades (Qty 8) : $21.25 (rp)
    Fusion (non-powered) blades (Qty 4) : $22.30 (rp)

    Just curious does anyone noe whether the fusion's refill blade can be use on the power fusion shaver? R the two kinds of blade the same? cos the refill for the fusion is much cheaper then the power fusion's......

    Wondering why the improvement from 2 to 3 to 5 blades?

    Aside from marketing (think megapixels in digicams & dpi in printers), the spacing between the blades get narrower, therefore holding down the surface of the skin flatter which results in less bumps and giving you a smoother nick-free shave.

    All Mach 3 blades will fit in any Mac 3 razors and all Fusion blades will fit on any Fusion razors.

    Heads expensive? Well, that's how the company makes it's profit.

    Question: Do you change the blades according to timing or by "feel"? If timing, how many days/weeks? If "feel", what do you "feel" for?
