    I prefer a heavy razor, full stop. Balance isn't a major consideration, but given the option, a slimmer rather than chunkier handle is my choice. I was recently given a NEW with two handles, a lightweight hollow one resembling a Superspeed's and a baseball bat, and the former seems far better to me. It would be better yet if it was solid, though.

    When I first started wet shaving I didn't really know the difference but once I was into it for awhile I found that I prefer a heavy head razor - seems to be much easier for me.

    I say both. I prefer reazors that are balanced. If one part is heavier than the other, I feel like my shave quality goes down. Overall, I prefer the razor to be on the lighter side, though.

    Default Heavy Handle or Heavy Head . . .

    Gentlemen:

    I do prefer the heavy and well-balanced razors, although I will always give a nod to those with a slightly heavier head.

    When it comes to DEs I prefer the look of the razor and the ease of changing blades. Generally, I prefer a heavier head, but some general balance too.
