    Which razor do you like best of the three?
    Which razor gave you the best and closest shave?
    I would love to get an opinion on what the differences are between them
    Gillette Atra or Gillette Trac II or Gillette Sensor Excel ?

    Thanks :)

    Don't know anything about Atra or Sensor, but I do know that the Track II's clog like crazy and cause ingrown hairs. I shaved with one for years and I hated it. They even made a version with a push button to force out clogs between the blades because they wouldn't clear even when run under hot water and banged against the side of the sink. Worst razor ever made.

    I like the Trac II. You have to shave daily, otherwise they clog.

    From an old thread here:

    I will say this, the new five blade razors, whatever they are called, seem to have blades spaced further apart than the old Track II and do not clog. OTOH, the heads are so huge that you can not see what you are doing. I suspect that they have abandoned the dreaded "Lift-n-Cut" system on those.

    FWIW, I used to shave every day with a Track II. It clogged all the time. This was a well known problem and is why they made the version with the push button. Someone recently posted a photo of a NOS blade pack.

    I like the Trac II adjustable carts. I don't remember if they have a lather ejector.
