    I have no idea. Is the difference only that rubber strip?

    I have no experience with modern cartridge razors anyway, but I have heard saying that the older designs (Atra / Contour) were better than the newer ones.

    It is strange that the old design (Trac II / GII compatible) cartridges are still made by third parties, but that apparently nobody makes the newer ones? I guess that the Sensor and Mach 3 patents have expired as well by now.

    I'd rather have no cuts than no Knicks(if I understood that question right).

    gorgo2 geezerhood

    Tried the Sensor when it first came out and I never could get impressed by it, so at some point I was regularly using the Slim Twin. I think it was the flex the Sensor blades have built into them?
