Hey all, looks like the Diamondback has made its return. The new 2020 versions are up and available on the Paradigm site.

I just got done talking with Andy and he admitted that the WCS release was not a bright spot for Paradigm. QC problems was more than what he expected and it was a dark time for him. This release solved all of the previous problems, and yes, it is a high polish finish.

For anyone who’s shaved with this (or even the javelin prototype maybe): why this and not many of the other great razors out there right now?

Hopefully he solved the previous problems. The main problem was uneven polishing. 
Hope somebody has already had WCS version and will get 2020 version. And he can share side by side photos here.

I have photos of my friends' Diamondback baseplates from first release:

I hope he can rebound from the WCS debacle. I imagine people will find it challenging to muster the confidence to plunk down $240 on that model given its inglorious history.

The reviews on WCS were not too good overall. They have gone from titanium razors to 303 stainless steel.

I was hopeful for this razor when it was announced. Paradigm has always offered a quality product so hopefully everything is on point now. I’d have a hard time believing that the second wave would come with the same issues that round one suffered from. Still have no idea where this would fit in my lineup as there haven’t been as many reviews on it that I have come across. The aesthetic issues seemed to be what everyone talked about. Hopefully those who order one report back.
