Best shave ever, but be aware that the plating quality is problematic

I've tried many different options from vintage Gillette and GEM to modern options from RazoRock and Parker and none of them provide the close and comfortable shave I get with the Progress set to 3.5. Unfortunately, the plating on the cap started to flake off after ~15 years of use. Since the flaws are right at the edge of the cap, it creates an uneven spot where the blade is exposed and renders the razor unusable. Since I can't seem to just get a replacement cap, I'm tempted to order a new Progress (it's that good), but I may try some of the other options in a similar price range.

Too aggressive for me

This razor has a lot of blade exposure, even on the lowest setting. Unfortunately, it was too much exposure for me. I tried multiple blades. The case also arrived with a crack.

Best shave yet!

Great Shave, Great Razor

I really didn't think I could get any closer of a shave than with my Merkur 34C HD, but I actually do with my new Merkur Progress Adjustable. Took me several shaves figuring the best settings for me, but found at about a 4 to 4.5 I get the best shave. I got a BBS shave with my 34c and the shave with the Progress feels the same but seems to last even longer before I start feeling stubble again. I am even comfortable skipping a shaving day and don't look like a vagabond. I recommend starting out at lower settings and "slowly" stepping it up to more aggressive settings. I think I jumped a bit too quickly and got a nice nick under my nose, but totally my fault. I also feel like the Progress bends the blades a bit more so your angle could be a bit more shallow if you are used to the 34c or other safety razors. This is my 4th razor now, yes I have R.A.D. (Razor Acquisition Disorder), and is now my favorite and go-to razor.
