Currently using the HeadBlade with their matching HeadBlade razors.

When these HB blades run out, does anyone recommend better compatible razors ? Just wondered if I can get a better shave with HeadBlade and another make of razor....

Tried the Sensor triple blades with the black adapter and couldn't get the blade to stay put.  Any suggestions on what I am doing wrong.

Cobster6, I would hate to buy a pack of the listed blades only for it not to work. Sadly my yellow adaptor broke a few days ago. Now I have to look for blades that fit the black adaptor, which can be a bit of a mission here.

Hello to everyone. Is there any general consensus as to what is the best blades to use from this list for the HB sport? I tried the Atra blade this morning and seemed like the HB triple that came with it worked better. These refills are not cheap so if somebody could steer me towards what will give me that smooth, Sly head would be appreciated. Thanks.

The only one I've tried ... and I'm satisfied with it ... is the Gillette Custom3Plus (use with the black adapter).  Best price I've found was $14.08 for 12 blades ($1.17 each) at Amazon.

I have not yet tried any blades with the black adaptor yet. It sucks when your yellow adaptor breaks. I dislike using things that are easily breakable. Just hope the HB does not disappoint!

I've had good luck with the Wilkinson Sword blades (Atra generics). They are dirt cheap (~$3.50 for 10) and they seem to last for quite a few shaves. Also they seemed better than the Atra's themselves.

I have tried lots of different blades with my HB. I do remember that i was satisfied with the HB trips, but ever since I have been using the Sensor, Sensor Excel or Sensor 3. They are more expensive but IMHO well worth it. I didn't find any substantial differences between the Sensor, Excel and Sensor 3, so I stick with the generic Gillette Sensor, the cheapest of all three
The sensors might not be everyones first choice but I haven't heard of a single person who was dissapointed with them

I cannot seem to find the Gillette Sensor cartridges easily in my neck of the woods, since my yellow adaptor broke.  There seems to be a flood of the new generation shaving cartridges on the shelves.  They are out there somewhere, I know.  Thanks for the recommendations.

Just bought some Gillette Sensor Excel blades to go with my Headblade Sport.
Oh yeah! It was way better than the HB tripple blades.  O0

Great information. i was using the mach 3 blades with the yellow adapter but prefer Sensor Excel blades better for me.
I bought some Mach3 blades, but I can't see how either adapter would work. The way the M3 attaches to its handle  - the M3 adapter - doesn't look like you can take it off, and neither HB adapter will fit the blades I have.

Schick Slim Twins work great and have a clean out button to push out the old hair. Very happy with them, better than the Wilkinsons I got from Walmart because of the cleaning feature.

Just ran across these London Drugs branded blades for Atra and Atra plus razors, they fit the HeadBlade yellow adapter nicely.
Price is good at $6.99 for 15 blades, now time for a trial and we see how good they are.
