    Which setting on a fatboy does everyone like the most?

    I think I like a 7 the most.

    Gillette adjustable users:
    Is the shave from a slim the same as a fatboy? As smooth? Are the settings about equal?

    they seem similar to me other than weight and the slim having the slimmer head.slim is easier under the nose when i shave the goatee off.

    I like them both as well, but I use the Fatboy a lot more often. 7 with a Voskhod blade is my favorite.

    The shave is very similar.

    Nope, ..... IMHO the FatBoy is a gentler shave:happy088:. That said, I do like the Black Beauty.

    I shave with the slim exclusively for a year and half and never grew to like it.

    The head on the Fatboy has a slight different head trajectory than the Slim and BB but a slight angle adjust and it shaves the same
