Pass Around: Asylum RX - Finished.

Thanks to the generosity of @Paul from ↪Connaught Shaving I can offer a pass around of the new Asylum RX razor by ↪Bullgoose Shaving



This is an exciting opportunity to try this brand new razor. It has been discussed in ↪this thread over at the Shave Nook. It's an SE razor that takes Feather AC type blades. Blades will be included in the pass around.
Please read and agree to the following rules and remarks before joining the list:
If you are new to pass arounds, please read ↪this post on how pass arounds work first.
This pass around is available to members of both the ATG and TSR forums in the UK. If you don't want to post your reviews on both forums I will post a link to your review on the other forum.
The pass around is not limited to a fixed number of members. I’ll restrict the pass around to members who have been around for a while. Don’t apply with your first post. UK based members only, due to postage costs. EU based members are welcome if they are willing to cover the extra postage. I might move long standing members up in the list, so we get relevant feedback early on.
Because of the value of the razor I recommend sending it by ‘Royal Mail Special Delivery by 1pm’ or equivalent. You send the tracking number to the recipient and to me.
The razor is your responsibility from the moment you receive it until the next person receives it. You break it or lose it - you buy it. If Royal Mail loses it, they’ll pay for it.
Don’t hog the razor. A week should be enough time to form an opinion.
Let’s know what you think about the razor. Post your thoughts on this thread and if possible on the other forum as well.
Make sure the razor is shave ready for the next person, i.e. cleaned and disinfected using for example ↪Barbicide.

A note about blades
@Paul will include six packs of blades. Thank you very much.
KAI Captain, Titan Mild & Feather Professional
All ok
Feather Proguard & KAI Protouch MG
go in fine but may stick a little & need more care when removing.
Feather Pro Super
Goes in fine but is tight so does get stuck in the head. You need a tool ( Paul used the super case) to carefully lift the blade & it will spring & jump out.

The head loading action is nice & easy to get used to, most blades just fall & slot in to place. A little Cotton or mineral oil may help to improve the action & help reduce any muck sticking inside the head. The pool razor is dry though & exactly as Phil sent it out.
