The PAL Injectomatic is now on its way to @fixedwheel.
I have included a magazine with 19 remaining Personna blades, but I highly recommend trying the razor with Chinese Schick blades if possible. I don't have many Chick blades left, so I was unable to add some to the pass around.
Do not use twin blades. They are not suitable for this razor.
I've had a bunch of great shaves with the PAL. If you haven't tried injector razors yet, or only Schick injectors, you should gives this razor a go.

I'm happy to donate a pack of Chicks, if it will help the cause! I'm on the list, and will leave a new pack with the razor once I post on.

First of all, can I say a HUGE thanks to @Steve Bowles for donating the razor to the pass around, and to Andreas @riverrun for organising it.

Well, I've come to the end of my time with the PAL, and I have tried both Personna and Schick ProLine B-20 blades in it. (I'd recently got both from Connaught for the G8 I talk about below.)

While I prefer the ProLines, I still find it a little aggressive for me. I get a lovely close shave, but just get a bit too much feedback when the WH goes on.

As I was away for the weekend, I was shaving with one of my DE89s and my preferred Personna med prep, which seems to give me the best balance between closeness and comfort. So that is where I will focus for a bit.

Now, I'll be first to admit, it is probably down to poor technique, as I have only been using DEs for a few months, so I will keep revisting SE/Injector usage with the Schick G8 I bought off of Richard @Glen_Lee through the BST recently.

So, the PAL has been cleaned with anti-bac soap and an old electric toothbrush, and then had a soak in a new Barbicide mix, rinsed and dried ready for its onward journey

It appears that Richard is next on the list, so if Andreas can just confirm that, I'll drop him a PM to hopefully get it on its way.

Again, many thanks for the opportunity to try the PAL.

Been enjoying the PAL, but been too busy with work to post any updates on here. I will do so in the coming days. I've dropped mbarno a PM via ATG & the razor will be moving on shortly.

I've popped a mag of chicks in with the razor for those who may never have tried them. In my opinion, they blow the Personna / generic blades away! :)

Thanks a lot, Richard!

Today I posted the PAL onto the next member of the gentry. Thank you @Steve Bowles & @riverrun for the chance to try this razor.

I really liked it. Tried one a long while ago and the handle was different, much thinner & flatter. I struggled with that one. However, the handle on the pass around is broader and similar to a Schick G series. Efficient and smooth shaves when paired with a Chick. My usual razor is a Schick E, and I could be tempted to buy one of these bad boys :eek: Form an orderly queue and join the list!
