    yes that same seller had them in 100s but took the listing down so i got worried. i did just buy 50 just in case...

    WCS just recently ran out of 100s too and they seem to be "out of stock" of items for a long time or forever even? If you look at their razors, a lot are OOS and have been for a while.

    not trying to start a riot, but....

    I used to like those reds.

    Alas, none of these are the Red Pack Personnas - most of them are the Israeli Personnas (good blades, just not the same as the red packs).

    I saw 100 packs on the Bay yesterday...and they're gone now, I just double checked. He only has 50 packs.

    What is the world coming to? Thankfully, I love Astras.
    Is this your homework, Larry?

    Several posters have mentioned that they've found only packs of 50.

    So what's the problem? Just order two 50 packs. Sure, the price is probably a little higher. However, if you really love the blade and are worried about future availability, then the slightly higher price shouldn't be a problem.

    I have it on good word that they're not going to be discontinued. There's just been some lag time as the manufacturer goes from old stock to new stock, which will be the same blades, only slightly more expensive.

    I highly doubted that the Red Pack/Crystals would be discontinued. These are very popular and sought after blades that have high demand.

    I'm sure the Red packs of the personna will be back shortly.

    Imagine how I feel, my favorite blade has been out of stock for 25 years. . . . .

    Tons of crystals/personnas on the bay . . . .
