Some notes on Gen 1 vs Gen 2 plates / Gen 3 vs Gen 4 top caps... in the words of the razor maker himself:

"All top caps shave the same. The profile of the top cap has never changed and your face can't tell which generation is which.

Gen 1 and Gen 2 baseplates of the same aggressiveness level will shave the same since the edge of the razor blade is in the same location. All critical design dimensions are identical even though the baseplates are different in appearance."

My personal (and biased) opinion: I greatly prefer a razor with generous audio feedback and the Gen 1 trumps the Gen 2 plate in that regard.

While I've heard it makes no difference in the shave, I greatly prefer the look of the gen 1 base plate, with the notches across the safety bar. Just looks cool ... and just maybe it might enhance the performance. GLWTS !
