I pulled the trigger on purchasing a Merkur progress to be converted into Ericís Mergress and am awaiting its arrival some time next week. I have never tried the progress so I will not be able to tell the difference between it and the modification but I figured if I was going to do something I was going to do it right and go big or go home. I was wondering if any of you who have either the Progress or the Mergress would be able to give me advice on how to first start using this adjustable wonder. Which setting do you think would be comparable to the EJ DE89? (which is what I currently use) I am hoping that I can use a more aggressive setting on my face and a more mild setting on my neck to perhaps be able to go against the grain and achieve BBS on my neck for once without razor burn. Any advice would be appreciated. Thanks.
