The major factories only produce the latest products, so Berlin and Boston only produce Fusion products. The other product lines are moved to other countries such as Poland, Brazil and China.I just"sensed" (hehe) that sensors are not being made as well as they used to be: more money will be spent on fusion stuff well, rather than legacy cartridges?
Toffee Crisp! Blueugh! not a fan, but I admit, alot better than mostThe major factories only produce the latest products, so Berlin and Boston only produce Fusion products. The other product lines are moved to other countries such as Poland, Brazil and China.
Do they move the production line? Re-tool the existing one? Or build a new one? They are not deliberately making the older products worse, they are just made in a different environment.
This has happened with most UK made shaving soaps, and even my beloved Toffee Crisp
looks good, plus, can also be used a shoe horn!
The Matrix 3 and the Triflexxx really should be axed along with the Magnum M5. The Caliber 3 and 5, GT 5 and 6 and EasyFit3 are great carts. The GT 5 is as good as a Gillette.Try the Aldi "Lacura" own brand 3 blade cartridge razor - it's the Personna Matrix 3 model, as marketed in the USA, from Edgewell.
Great price and very acceptable results.
6 replacement cartridges, same price, cheap as chips.
The Personna Matrix 3 - identical, except for branding.
Asda and Wilko (selected stores only) do a disposable version - maybe others ?
The Caliber 3 is available in Boots, Superdrug and Morrison's.The Caliber 5 is available in Boots, Superdrug and Asda. The GT5 is only available in Tesco, this is sold in Japan as the Schick Quattro 5. The GT6 is only available in Australia at Aldi.I'm fine with Matrix 3 meantime, prefer 3 blade razors as a general rule.
I've clocked the Triflexxx as own brand in the usual supermarkets, and the Magnum M5 is in Aldi as "Lacura" brand I believe.
I'm not familiar with Caliber 3 and 5, GT 5 and 6 and EasyFit3, who retails these in the UK ?
Is there an "Idiot's Guide" for pilgrims like me ?
The EF3 appears to be cartridge only to fit Mach 3 - does it come as a complete product?
Do the Caliber 3 and 5 each use the same handle ? Could you please flag up a link to either in any of these stores, as I'm not familiar with them.The Caliber 3 is available in Boots, Superdrug and Morrison's.The Caliber 5 is available in Boots, Superdrug and Asda.
I think the MR3 has the nicest handle of F-System range, its a shame Feather have discontinued these & the blades. The F3 (Samrai Edge) are a good replacement but not the same as the MR3.
