    I received a Super Adjustable w/ black handle from a member on this forum. I used it a few times over the last few days and noticed I liked it better than my SS Red Tip. It was balanced better, gave a closer shave, and just fit my hand better.

    My question is on a super adjustable what setting is closest to the Red Tip in aggressiveness? I using setting 4 on the super adjustable and seem to get a better shave so is 2 or 3 closer to the red tip?

    I used to shave with a similar adjustable, and I will be receiving a red tip SS soon. I'll let you know how they compare when the red tip comes in.

    I'd say a red tip is a 2/3 or so. Supers are great razors.

    I can't answer your question, but I can say that I have gotten horrible shaves with any SS I have ever used (never a red tip though). My SA, however, is awesome! Usually set on 7 or 9, dialed down to 5 for the upper lip.

    I would have to say that a 5-7 would be closer to the red tip for me.
    That varies depending upon which of the super adjustables you have - metal base plate or the plastic base plate.

    I'd say about 4-5 for a USA Red Tip and 6-7 For the Red Tip Rocket.

    I prefer the metal base over the plastic base and the long handle over the short. Set on a 4-5. Glorious shaver!

    I wholeheartedly concur with this assessment.

    Or, more simply put, +1! :D
