Interesting, why did you struggle with the 41C? I had no idea it was considered more difficult than average to use?Practice makes perfect! Stick with it.
I personally struggled with the 41C although I love the look of it. I was using it only a few weeks ago if I recall correctly. I don't want to open the floodgates to razor recommendations but there may be something a little easier to master your technique with. Nonetheless, enough practice with the 41C and you'll get there.
