Don't worry about the new foil pattern., 9 Nov 2011
After reading some of the more negative reviews I was concerned about the fact that Braun had changed the cassette to a new design, was this an improvement or them cutting corners?
In practice (after two days of not shaving) there was a noticeable improvement in shaving, namely the shaver moved more smoothly over my skin and best of all I had a nicer closer shave, which is the whole point right?
Is this design any better than the old design? I can't remember :) Maybe its just better because its new but I have to wonder if the larger holes in the foil let hairs through more easily ready for cutting hence a better experience.
Slight negative is that the new cassette has a plastic look on the sides instead of the silver metallic look of the original making it look a little cheaper. Bottom line its a definite improvement over an old cassette of 18 months and I'm glad I bought it.
