Here’s my input... Rounded cap is definitely the way to go. One reason is the user can adjust the angle to his preference with the rounded cap, whereas the beveled head kind of locks in the angle. Other reason is the rounded head better clamps down the blade and provides a smoother and chatter free shave. As far as the weight goes, I was fine with the weight and liked the balance of the razor. This is one of those razors where I feel lightness is a virtue. If it were mine to keep (hint hint Tom), I do not think I would regret the lightness at all. On the other hand, If it were a bit heavier by 10-15 grams and the balance didn’t change, I think I would be okay.
