    Default Futur POS vs HD

    I believe I read that the Futur and HD possess the same head geometry. Out of curiosity, which setting makes a Futur = a HD?

    Ziggy, I own both and don't believe they have the same head at all.

    IMHO, that would be kinda like saying a paring knife is similar to a good filleting knife.

    Very different head geometry. But: I use an HD quite often. When I started using the Futur I (sensibly) started with the setting 1.0. I went to 1.5 after a couple of shaves and stayed there for quite a while. I now use it at 2.0. So this HD user likes the Futur at 2.0 (after learning at 1.5). YM, of course, MV.

    The Progress and HD are comparable in geometrical design.
