Derris you are a real gent. I am minded to buy a Wahl Balding Clipper tomorrow. 40

I fly away on hols next week and could do with a nice close number. 

Couple of questions:

1. Is the cord restrictive for self shaving?

2. Any tips on setting up the Wahl Balding Clipper so I don't, cut myself up?

Thanks for all your help

Hi Derris,

A big thank you for helping me align my Wahl Balding clipper blades yesterday via Skype. We got there in the end, I didn't know they spoke English in America, I was finding it hard to understand, but we got there in the end   :P

I clipped my hair this morning and the power of the Wahl compared to my Philips is amazing. The Philips is good, but the Wahl so much better. It cuts without leaving any patches, more even, much lower and so much quicker. I doubt you'd get such power out of a cordless clipper. The cord didn't really impede my technique and I can only get better.  O0

I also have a cordless Wahl Lithium Ion trimmer for shaping up. I think I'll keep the Philips as my backup device, as opposed to selling it.

I'll go back to cutting two a week, especially with the balding clipper making the process much quicker. They are also coming on holiday with me.... They deserve it   :@`

Hi,

This thread is obviously old but I can't decide which clipper is best for me.  I'm looking for something that will cut my hair down to something between first day to third day of shaving.  I've only just started embracing my new bold look so I'm really new to this.

After reading this thread I'm looking to buy Wahl Balding Clipper but I would prefer a cordless one.  Which clipper would anyone recommend?

Many thanks.

No questions about it; The Wahl Balding Clippers are what you need and are all you'll need for a very long time. I've had my set for upward of five years and apart from a few drops of oil, that's it as to maintenance. Keep this in mind, if your hair, or what is left of your hair is dark, nothing, not even the closest blade shave will conceal the "shadow". Understand that going in and you won't feel cheated when, after you've used the Wahls or a straight razor that the "look" you want isn't there. In terms of finance, over five years I've saved far more than the purchase price and that assumed I'd had my hair buzzed at the barber shop-locally, the cost for that is (USD) $7.00.  Additionally I found that I could whizz them over my face when I hadn't bothered to shave for several days which produced very short stubble, as if I hadn't shaved in several hours (as opposed to several days.) Don't even hesitate; Buy The Wahs.

A very satisfied user. (Check the reviews for these at Amazon.com)

I've decided to go with Philips QC5550 because Amazon wouldn't ship Wahl bolding clipper to Australia.  I was looking up QC5580 and it seems to be very similar QC5550.  Can anyone confirm if QC5580 is similar to QC5550?

I might be able to cancel my order if I receive a quick reply.

 I would cancel the order mate, my Philips QC5550's have seen zero action since purchasing my Wahl balding clippers a week ago. I love them so much, that they are holidaying with me right now in Turkey  :@`

Nice post Derris :)

I have 3 sets of clippers, some old Sears ones (my mom had them for years), my Wahl clippers (not sure the model off the top of my smooth dome...LOL) which I found would yank and snag at the back right side of my head and would really irritate me, and my Oster Turbo and collection of blades. The Oster is terrific, I love it, but now that I have become committed to the Order of the Sly ;D I think they will find themselves gathering dust and perhaps a round selling them on fleaBay... :)
