For those who have used this razor, how would you compare it's efficiency or aggressiveness to Sabre base plates 1 and 2?

After only one shave with the Vector my assessment is that while being noticeably more efficient than the Sabre L1 and L2 (and almost as efficient as my BlackBirds Gen 1) the Vector feels a bit milder than the Sabre L2.

With one shave using Paradigm SE on one side and Vector on the other my initial impressions are
Vector is extremely maneuverable and has some blade feel. Loading and unloading the blade was a little difficult for me as the head is about the size of the blade. It gave me a 2 pass BBS with 24 hr beard and sailed ATG. It is a dainty razor so if you like large handles I don’t think you would like it
Paradigm super smooth SE and very easy to whip across my face and neck. More like a gem blade when it comes to under the nose. Finish on this is better than any of my other Paradigms and the weight is perfect. Blade loading is a piece of cake. 2 pass BBS and ATG was super smooth. The handle is not slippery but it does not have much knurling. The razor looks much better than the pics

Mark . How would you compare both to the RX?

I will need more shaves in, but my feeling right now is both are smoother than the Rx, and I do not have the feeling that either would bite easily like I had with the Rx when I first got it. I am 10 hours post shave as I write this and my face is still very smooth, so efficiency wise, right now I'd say both are about as good. I used a Pro-line Blade in both which is my blade of choice now for SE's.

Can someone with a Vector post a picture of it on a UFO Titan? I am very curious how it would look and feel on that handle. Thanks!
