I decided to give a Weber DLC another try, so I bought a head on one of the forums. And then, figuring that the DLC made my Delta Echo black-coated Feather AS-D2 redundant, I sold the Feather. Naturally, I discovered (or re-discovered) that the DLC was no smoother on my skin than the coated Feather had been, and once again I had seller's remorse.
Fortunately, a friend wanted the DLC, so I passed it on to him, and I was able to find another stock AS-D2 head at a reasonable price to send off to Jay for coating. so that head is on its way to me.
Meanwhile, another shaver who had seen my WTB ad offered me his Delta Echo Feather AS-D2, in black chrome and nickel, at a good price. So that one (shown in the images below) is also coming to me. Now my only problem is deciding what color to have the stock head coated, so that it too will complement my variety of Triad, UFO, and Stork razor handles...
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!
