Agreed 3=DE89 or slightly less aggressive.I have the DE89 and just bought the 6C. I would say that plate 3 is the equivalent to DE89. I've only shaved with plate 4 once and it seemed to me more aggressive.

Although I should add that the blade and soap choice make a phenomenal difference, so it is all fairly much irrelevant.Agreed 3=DE89 or slightly less aggressive.
Plate 4, slightly more aggressive than DE89 but great for me.

Exactly this. I also like using plates 5 and 6 on the occasion, specially if I have 2-3 days growth. They are still smooth, although with more blade feel.Agree, i have the Muhle R89 and has just tried my new Rockwell for the second time. Plate 3 is about the same as the R89, plate 4 is AMAZING! Way more aggressive than the Muhle but totally smooth with no irritation.
