Mach 3 Turbo

Anybody know if these new Mach 3 Turbo blades will fit on my regular Mach 3 razor? Are they any better than the non-turbos (not talking about 300Ds here)?

i'm pretty sure they do fit as all gillette blades seem to be interchangable (i use my wifes blades sometimes), but can't figure out what makes them different that the naturally aspirated??:p they cost a few bucks more than the already high price of mach 3's.

Yes, I know for a fact they do. I don't really notice much difference between the "Turbo" and "natural aspirated" blades though. Buy whatever is cheaper. I always get the Turbo's, you know, it's a guy thing, gotta have the "Mach III T".
Really happy with the Mach 3 product though, almost no cuts anymore.

and you thought you'd heard everything

and now...

Cryogenically treated Mach 3 blades!


Lasts 4X longer!


wish i'd seen this sooner, just suffered through the sticker shock of a 20 pack at Costco, $28! all reports indicate that the claims are on the level...

Obviously no MB owners at these razor companies, or else they'd be "Mach III Kompressorblades".
Maybe the next big improvement will be "Mach III Twin Turbo"
or "Mach III Turbo 4matic". Or for the fundamentalist, they could come out with a "Mach III Turbodiesel". The environmentalist are probably all using "Electric" razors .

i'm gonna order a bunch of these cryo treated ones just for the heck of it. i hear it gets you an even better shave than an untreated one aside from lasting 4 or more times longer...

Okay, it piqued my curiosity and I ordered an 8 pack. I'll feel like a sucker until those blades last a good looooong time.

Anyone use the razor holder from Sharper Image that theoretically keeps the blades magnetically aligned so they last longer? I received one for Christmas and use it. I think it works, but that could just be the "placebo" effect. Hope that isn't what I experience with the cryo-blades while some guy in basement with a huge supply of REGULAR blades spends his days fixing the boxes with his own labels and reselling them at a huge profit. We'll see....

I bought the Mach 3 the other day and I hate it. there is to much flex to the head it won't get close to my skin. I find it pretty annoying that I have to hold the top of the blad still while I shave.
for a 9 dollar razor and a 9 dollar box of refills I was not impressed

I am finding it very hard to visualize this. You held the top of the blade and moved your head up and down?

Mach 3 turbo

Hi all

I am back after self imposed exile,but i wont go there.

As an employee of Gillette in So. Boston Ma.The site that is promoting Gillette blades that have been treated to -300 degrees in my opinion is a fraud.I have contacted Gillette legal department and given them the information about this site (greatrazors.com)
I believe this place will be shut down very soon.

Save your money. If any member has any a question about our products please feel free to email me @ my 450sl@hotmail.com or post it here

Regards

Razorman

Cryo'd Razors no fraud.

In response to Razorman's post, I am the guy who runs GreatRazor.com. Just to let everyone know that my Cryo process is not only a fraud, and have thousands of satisfied customers. Over 75% of my customers continue to use GreatRazors and reorder more. I offer a money back guarantee and have yet to have a customer take me up on my guarantee.

If you want to talk about fraud. Ask Gillette if they Cryo'd about 30,000 Mach3 samples and sent them out to consumers. Then when the consumers went back to buy the refill cartridges, they did not last as long. They never told consumers that the samples were Cryo'd and the refills would not be Cryo'd.

Each Cryo'd Mach3 cartridge lasts me 7 months (not typical). Is this why Gillette does not Cryo their cartridges?

Check out headshaver.org or fatwallet.com and see what some of my past customers have to say about GreatRazors.com
