Nice Razor, Close Shave, but May Be Overkill

Let me start by saying I love the Gillette Fusion line of products. I've been using the Proglide regular for a few years now and won't switch over to any other razor brand. That being said I thought the flexball was overkill. Something that needs a battery to work on your face that's not an electric razor just seemed like a bit much. It was a close shave for sure, but I don't know if I'd buy this over just the standard Proglide. Again, a great razor, but the flexball wasn't enough of an improvement for me to seek out buying it again.

Thanks for the feedback. I'm sorry to hear that you thought the FlexBall technology was a little too much. Our hope and intention in developing the new technology was that you would notice a closer, smoother shave and be able to use fewer strokes. I'll certainly be passing your comments along to the rest of the team. If at any time you would like to speak with a representative, don't hesitate to give us a call at 1-800-445-5388.

Not impressed

I recieved my free razor from Gillette and decided to conduct a little experiment over the four day holiday weekend. I shaved half of my face with the pro glide and the other half with my regular razor. I must say I was not very impressed with the proglide especially after researching the price. The side I shaved with the proglide was not as close or smooth as my regular. Because of that, I had stubble about twice as fast on the proglide side. I also felt as if I needed to go over that side more to fruitlessly try to get the same about of smoothness. Unfortunately, I wouldn't recommend.

No, I do not recommend this product.

The other day my wife asked me to shave off my beard. Since I got the Gillette flexball (a trial version from Gilette) I have been using it to trim up the beard and it worked very well. This thing cuts! Note that it cuts the whiskers, not the face :) It did a tremendous job cutting through my beard. I purposefully neglected to trim it with the clippers before I shaved it off, giving the razor a true test. It passed with flying colors. The flexball technology has be a bit stumped, I must admit.. I just don't get it. But the razor works well, and with the vibrating handle turned on it gives a clean, smooth shave in no time.

Yes, I recommend this product!
