Re: Simpson Super

I would recommend the two band because Simpsons current batch has very soft tips with excellent flow and better backbone. I recently purchased a CH2 in two band and was surprised that it had these features. Based on your preference and experiences, I don't think you would regret it.

Happy New Year All,
I am hoping members can help me find some of these blades to purchase (Gillette 7 O'clock Super platinum-Blue Czech version). A small amount or even larger amount would be ok.
Thanks for any help.

Somebody needs to pick this up. It's a good price for an excellent handle. I have this one and the Ikon & I prefer the Weber.

I have been thinking about trying a str8 but the Cobra seems like a good/safe compromise. I will be finding out because Michael has put me on the mailing list for the Cobra pkg. That is very generous of him & very helpful. I'm looking forward to it.

This is funny, but interesting. I put a weber handle on my R41, which is identical to the ikon handle. I had the same results with my go-to blades. It handled better, not as unpredictable. I am going to keep it now.

Hey Gary, How does the Cobra do compared to the R41? I'm looking into the Cobra myself. The R41 is a little uncomfortable (unpredictable) for me.
