    I've used both and the Flexball doesn't make that much difference.

    I actually find a lot of difference in using the flexball - much smoother shave for one...No cuts / nicks even if I rush thru a shave...

    Strange how we differ. I have Fusion and Proglide (but not the Flexball) and have always been fonder of the original Fusion. But I use it with very good creams and brush soap. When I use those creams and soaps with ProGlide, I find things overly gooey. On the other hand, if I was using canned lather, I'd probably like the ProGlide more.
    Cheers,

    I used the Gillette sensor 3 blade system for about 20 years, never had any issues.

    About 2 years ago I switched to the Wilkinson Sword quattro 4 blade. I buy the titanium blades.

    They are very good. Each blade lasts about 2 weeks but I do not shave every day, maybe every 36 hours, 4 times each week.

    Worst?? Bic probably or Aldi / Lidl.

    Will definitely have to give Proglide a try, thus many thanks for the suggestion to everyone who mentioned this. Already owning the regular Proglide that just sits in one of the cabinets around the house, still in its original packaging, simply for not having brought myself to try it, while also considering to get the Flexball version.

    Best: Gillette Fusion ProGlide Power Flexball (I don't have to make weird looks on my face for a close shave. And a blade lasts a month.)

    Worst: Bic Hybrid Advance 3. (Didn't shave at all... right out of the package. Had to do Disney World without shaving... Walt wouldn't be proud.)

    I've tried Quattro, thought it was good, but preferred Schick Extreme. I got good results from the Aldi's Prince 5 blade and 3 blade ones two.

    That is curious. I have only tried Bid Hybrid Advance 3 once, but thought it was pretty good compared to their single and two blade ones which I didn't like.

    I'd put another voice toward Proglide.
    Best cartridge I had - and I know all top-level ones. Very polite and forgiving blade.
    No cuts, no nicks, you can shave fast, w/o considering every move.

    Just finished my first shave with the Proglide Flexball and thought to post the impressions here. Quite possibly the best (and also among the fastest, as well as mild but still thorough) wet shaving experiences so far, better suited to my skin than both all the previous cartridge razors used (including previous models by the same brand) and DE, even more surprising considering that my skin is both quite oily and extremely sensitive, while the growth both abundant and raspy-thus making any shave additionally difficult.

    Interesting thanks.

    I still Haven't come across a Flexball Proglide unit yet, or I would have bought it, if for no other reason than to compare it to my current favourite.
