I have a question for you! I'm interested in getting Delta Echo to coat my RR Babysmooth. I'm considering it because I love the way the razor shaves, but I find the black anodized coating on the razor head to be "grabby" and not smooth. Does the DE coating have a slick/smooth feel? Enough to make a difference? I find the level of glide/smoothness of the razor head on my skin to be a prime factor in how comfortable a shave I get.

Thanks in advance!

I was able to acquire a free $50 Amazon gift card so I have a few things on the way. Shaving sticks of La Toja and Tabac as well as Fine Fresh Vetiver and Santal Absolut aftershaves. My order of Wholly Kaw's Monaco Royale tallow/donkey milk soap will be here this week too. I'm excited to try that one!

Yes, the Delta Echo coating made my Feather AS-D2 head significantly smoother, at least as smooth, in fact, as a Weber DLC.
