    Congrats, man! It's a great feeling, huh?

    As for the ATG on your upper lip, I wouldn't stress over that... I tried it ONCE and found out why some folks refer to it as "The Fool's Pass". Instead, one of our Mods (Ryan, I believe) suggested exactly what you did yourself (a 2nd XTG pass) and his advice was spot on.

    I remember my first DFS. Everything just seemed to click and I really didn't think it was that good until I started to rinse my face, felt really really slick and smooth. Congratulations!!! It only gets better from here. Don't rush it.

    And, Happy Shaves,
    Scott

    DFS... Damn Fine Shave.... There is an acronym guide in the FAQ area... Comes in really helpful.. Some make sense... Some are brand abbreviations that are specifically shaving related...

    I just read a tutorial on the scything pass... Interesting...

    Haven't tried that myself yet, every time I think I'll give it a go, I think, "why?" What I'm doing now works fine...and of course, sometimes if you tempt fate, it can both reward you and slice your face open??? So....
