    Default "2013" R41

    If there were a shaving hall of fame, I would nominate King Gillette and whoever designed the 2011 R41. I'm concerned the new version with the wider cap will not match up to its predecessor. I have one coming in so I'll know soon. Anyone out there experienced with both versions?

    I will also will be ordering the R41 2013' in rosegold probably next week from Connaught. I have the 2011 version and its unbeatable. On B&B and TSN they have been comparing the two versions. Only a couple of guys have the 2013 but seem to be in agreement that its just as affective as the 2011 maybe smoother because of less razor exposure. But according to consensus its just about as aggressive as the 2011. My opinion will come only after trying it out.

    You guys are killing me ! I don't even shave with a DE on any kind of regular basis, but lately, reading about the R41 I've been tempted to buy one. Now you tell me there are two variations ! Arrrgghhh DERAD is rearing its ugly head !!!

    maybe this is interesting:
    agressiveness is similar but much more "unbloody"
