I have a British Shorthair cat, and it's interesting to see how her preferences gradually change over time---e.g., where she likes to nap. Same with me. I started with shaving creams, and now I use only soaps. I need to return to the creams... real soon now. And the razor. My first favorite was the Vision. Then the Slant Bar. Then I tried the Super Speed---pffft! What's the big deal? But then, after a few months, I tried again: great little razor. I just didn't have a flexible enough technique that I could adapt to a different razor. My feeling now is that any good razor will deliver the perfect shave if (a) your technique is sound (and adapted to that razor), and (b) you're using the right blade for you. The razor is, after all, just a device for holding the blade and presenting it to the beard. Some other favorites that have developed: the Gem G-Bar, the Schick Injector, the Gillette Fatboy... heck, they're ALL good.
