Lasts up to three months??? (Fusion Users)
« on: October 23, 2007, 09:31:17 AM »
Ok. Has anyone noticed on the Fusion refill packs state that a 4 pack will last up to 3 months? How are the figuring this? My calculation put that at a cartridge lasting 22.5 day - over three weeks. I don't know about anyone else, but a cartridge usually last me 7-10 days. Has anyone be able to make these last the stated 3 months?

I can only get a fusion blade to last about 3 to 4 shaves, where as other Gillette blades will last double that.  It's the reason I've given my wife my fusion and stated using the Sensor blades for all of my shaving.

I get about 3 weeks from a Fusion blade, but its not my main headshaving tool either.  I use it on my face and on my head after I Headblade to get the bad angle spots.

Same here.  I would have to be really hairless to get that many shaves out of any blade.

I think that the claim of 3 months for a 4pack of Fusion blades is probably taking into account that people will shave their face with it.  >:D

Us Sly guys will give the blades a run for their money. The most I've ever gotten out of a Fusion cartridge is 10 full headshaves. The last 2 felt as I was shaving with a blunt piece of anthracite coal but I managed to eek through it.

My 7-10 days is with just shaving my face. The headbalde is my weapon of choice for the dome. I just don't see how they can make a claim like that when it is so unlikely. I'd like to know what kind of math they used to come up with that figure.
