Sounds like how I started. I could not get a good shave from the Super Speed and moved away from it. One day about five months into the DE thing I picked up again and fell in love. I used the Mach3 Power, an awesome shave no doubt. The Super Speed is a mild shaver in my opinion so you need a good blade so you may want to read in the sub forum inside Safety Razors I believe it is and work on your technique; I watched videos and paid attention to how they worked and I had been wet shaving a while. I will say that this time of year is challenging for the shave and I had to make adjustments a few weeks ago. I added a brief hot towel because my face was drying because of the heat running; I lathered before applying the towel. Try some things you will be surprised what brings your shave around...Hope this helped
