For anyone who uses a foil shaver what has gotten them the closest and what do you find works best?

Andis Profoil Lithium shaver

I use them everyday at work - on heads - and they beat any of the others (including the Wahl brand), even the ridiculously expensive others like the Braun's).  AND, you can get both replacement blades and foil heads for them for cheap as well.

I have one of the Andis shavers and I have had them used by a barber on my head as well.  It is the best shave from any electric that I have ever experienced.  I still prefer my cartridge razor blade shave, but I use the Andis when I travel.

For winter , I use a Braun series 5 , or The Pit Bull Gold shaver. Both do a fast and good job , the Braun is closer , but slower than the PBG shaver.
If only all men lived by the "Golden Rule ."

I love the blades more but do shave with a foil razor as well. Any body uses a double foil? Cause for me, that is not working as well?

I've had a Remington triple head for over 10 years. I use it to pre-shave sides and back everyday. Works very good and I replace the blades and screens about once a year.

For guys thinking about trying a foil shaver, mine gets it ALMOST close as a blade. Very bald, but you will feel the stubble a little sooner than with a razor shave.
Bald by choice, and loving it!
