Josh, I'm not sure what kind of hair you have (curly vs. straight, thick vs. thin, etc.). I suggest you post a picture of some sort; even if it's just the top of your head, whatever.
It may be that your current clippers just aren't the right type for you. You might try the others mentioned (I've seen some guys say they like the Conair Cleanhead). Another option might be to go to your nearest discount store and just get some inexpensive clippers and do the buzz deed about every day or so, as needed.
Since I have straight, thin "cruel" hair
I haven't experienced anything of this sort. My hair has never been a cutting problem except when I've had too much magic elixer
and I attempt the impossible (at that point and time)
