Not for me. I bought an EJ DE89L several weeks ago and never used it. I got it on the recommendation of fellow B&Bers. A friend who got a really cheapo set recently was thinking about a new razor and brush. I gave him my Vulfix 2235 to replace his shedder. He loves it; best shaves he's gotten to that point.
Last week I gave him the DE89L on approval; if he liked it he could have it for what I paid.
His reaction on first shave was
Best, closest shave ever. He's one of those guys who gets a 5:00 shadow at 10:15 if he shaves at 10:14. He still shows some shadow, but it's way less than ever before. Once he gets down to going in some different directions on his beard, I'm thinking it will be gone completely.
Thanks for the recommendations, guys.
