I couldnt help but notice, Gilligan looks like Newkirk.
Anyway, I have 2 Futur's. I have never shaved with an HD so I can't compare them to that but I wouldn't say the Futur is any more aggressive than my Slim. It is very different and the blade angle is different but again, I wouldn't characterize it as more agressive.
