    Just came in today. IB nailed it. Fit, finish is impeccable with the cap, base and both handles. The Radio Knob and the Bamboo...
    Not that I’m trying to push an enabling button, but you know.......

    Do you think it will out perform the 2011 R41?

    No.... Only 2 razors outperform the ‘11 R41. That’s the Ikon Tech & the PAA DOC EVO. Period.

    I loaded my new GC with a new Astra blade and proceeded with a light touch. After a prep with Stirling Tuscany I enjoyed a good two pass shave.

    I rode the cap, and pretty much let the weight of the razor do the work. It gave OK feedback and didn't jump out at me with any surprises. Just a mild-mannered, well balanced, finely crafted DE.

    My next blade will be a Kai, which should bring out a little more goodness.

    The Kai should help a bit with feel and efficiency. It was the blade that gave me excellent results during my tryout with the GC prototype. Good luck and happy shaves... :)

    Congrats!! I was a tester and still have my game changer, it's the best razor I've used. Even better than my Weber PH.

    Nothing new to add here except that the Gamechanger gave me an excellent 2.5 pass shave on 24 hours growth on it’s maiden shave. I threw in a fresh Kai SS blade, went all out with the RazoRock soap & a/s splash, the F-400 XXL and gave meself a no irritation, no nics or weepers 5 star BBS finish. As I’ve said before, and to each their own but the Kai & Gamechanger duo is an elite shaving combination for me. Stays smooth but gives just the right amount of blade feel and efficiency that I like. Perfect alignment, excellent fitment and tolerances with good weight and balance equals a great shave in my hands. And for $50. Probably won’t work for everyone, and that’s fine by me. Everyone has to find what works for them. The Gamechanger works for me.....

    +1, they seem to know what folks want and they try their best to full fill orders but they must be popular because there mostly sold out of products I like.

    Got my fourth shave in with the Gamechanger. Still the same Kai blade in there and it worked flawlessly. Cleared my face in 2.5/3 passes with no irritation to speak of. Why has it been working for me? Perhaps the hair that grows on my face is not as dense as others. I can get a full beard, just not as thick, heavy or dense as some others may have. The hair on my face is also not that coarse, more like wirey steel that swirls around my neck and throat area. So, it might be more of an issue with those that have very heavy growth and perhaps with sensitive skin, the Gamechanger may not be their answer whether using the sharpest blades out there or not.

    As I have stated before, the Gamechanger does work for me, but I have had to use a very sharp blade such as a Feather and even more so the Kai. These two blades work very well for me, with the Kai giving me a slight more bit of blade feel thus a better feeling shave. As some have stated here, myself included, I believe the safety bar/guard is just a bit to long and is a detriment to the Gamechanger’s performance in terms of feeling more efficiency throughout the shave. I’ll stand by that and believe that the guard is the main culprit. Positive or negative blade exposure has a good say in it here also, but that span between the guard to the blade is just a tad to far thus making the cutting window a bit more narrow to find for some. I ride the cap a bit more and the guard is basically not touching my face when I shave and I have been getting the desired results on a consistent basis. Not saying it’s the answer, it just works for me and perhaps it might work for others. Besides that, the razor is made to excellent standards of quality, fitment and finish.

    Then again, we can just wait until the more aggressive base plates become available. Would I prefer a more aggressive/efficient baseplate? Absolutely. I’d be the first one in line once that happens. The platform is there in every other aspect including the ridiculous price that it’s being offered for to be a true Gamechanger. I think once that’s happens, it will be a different story....
    As it stands, I can deal with it.
