Fusion ProGlide hits its Stride with the FlexBall

Tucson, AZ
July 10,2014
I'm very picky about my razors and shaving but, at the same time, I'm always up for trying new razor's, regardless of brand, to see if the latest and greatest gimmick can give me a better shave then what I currently use. Gillette sent me their latest and greatest (thanks Gillette) to test out and I was thoroughly impressed. I'll be honest, I was somewhat skeptical at first about the "FlexBall" but I really feel it helped ensure the closest, safest, shave I've had in awhile. It seemed to curve to my face where others failed. I actually have used just the ProGlide version before but when you incorporate the FlexBall as well it really takes the shaving experience up a notch. After a few shaves with the new razor I sort of took the training wheels off and tried to see just how much quicker and rougher I could be and still get a great shave with no injuries. As much as I tried (within reason), I couldn't get this razor to nick me, it just continued to give me a nice quality shave time and time again no matter how fast I shaved. The shaver has definitely earned a place in my drawer and if and when I need some replacement blades I will surely buy some for this model. Whether you shave daily or weekly, this razor is exactly what you need.<

I love the razor

I was glad to be trying a razor for free. I am in the military so I have to shave every day. This Fusion ProGlide razor with the flexball provided a great, close shave. I wouldn't necessarily say that it was noticeably different from any of the other Fusion razors though. They are great razors overall but I feel like the "different" razors that they come out with are just to make more money having people buy more to try them out. They don't really perform any differently. The cost is also very high. Again, the razor is excellent (as all other Fusion razors are), I just don't know if they are really worth their cost to me.<

I was offered the chance to try the Fusion Proglide Power Razor through a program run by Gillette. I've been using this brand since their Mach 3 model came out, and I've always been happy with their products. To be honest, I'm not sure the flex ball makes a whole lot of a difference. This is a good razor, but I will probably stick with the cheaper model, since handle and blade are about the same in my experience.

Answers a question no one really asked. I dont notice the difference in this between the regular fusion proglide. Both seem to work well with about 2 days of beard- past that and its a struggle.

I shave about 2-3 times a week usually because I can't handle how my old razors usually tear up my skin. Gillette Pro Glide is my new go to razor. The ball technology took a little getting used to but really allowed for a super close shave while not irritating my skin. This new technology allows for a super close shave in the tough areas such as the jaw. The blades are fairly durable. Even when it's time to replace, they are still very gentle on the skin. I don't really see the need for the power and don't see a difference whether I use it or not. I have already purchased blade replacements for this razor and have replaced my old razor. Can't stop raving about the long lasting, gentle but close shave Gillette Pro Glide gives.

It took me a while to open the package and try my new Gillette Fusion ProGlide Razor, but when I did my entire shaving routine was instantly upgraded! Everything about this razor feels well thought out and updated; the contoured handle, the thinner blades which seem to get even closer to the skin, and the ball. The FlexBall! I had no idea how much effort I was making to shave the edges of my jaw and around my mouth. It's almost as if this razor moves itself! Truly amazing!!

Gillette Fusion Power Glide

It was a pleasure to try the new Gillette Fusion Power Glide razor. I must admit that I was a bit skeptical to try yet ANOTHER razor promising more. I first tried it with several days of growth. I typically get bad razor bumps from shaving. Using this razor solved all those problems. I was able to shave without have to use multiple passes to cut all the hair. The roller-ball motion eliminates the need to become a contortionist trying to get into the nooks and crannies. Simply put - this is hands down the best razor I've ever used in my life. I'm a total convert now.

I thought this razor would be like every other razor I have tried, however, I did notice a difference. This razor is easy to use and produces a smooth shave. I didn't notice as many small cuts as my previous razor often creates. Overall, I am happy with it.

Get a Great Handle on this Technology!
Sunnyvale, CA
July 07,2014
This product is definitely a great upgrade from regular disposable razors. I thought it was really easy getting use to this razor. I was already using the Gillette ProFusion Glide Razor so I was already very satisfied with my daily shave routine. Now the razor with the flexball technology, I think the razor is even better. The handle itself without the battery is very light. With the battery, it gives the razor a good weight and feels like a good weight to handle for shaving. The design looks nice. The handle is silicon so it has a good grip when holding onto it. It's very intuitive to use. There's a light up button to turn on the razor and it slightly vibrates. The vibration is not extremely strong so it's still entirely controllable. The actual shave is very smooth and clean. I'm able to get a very close shave with this razor and it goes over very smooth. The handle of it really makes the shaving experience every morning much more special.

The Gillette fusion pro glide razor is the best razor I have ever used. It is simple to use and gives a close, smooth shave. I would highly recommend it to all men. A great razor at a reasonable price as it does last a long time. Great job Gillette !

Great razor but...

I have yet to use a fusion pro glide razor and get a bad shave so I was excited to receive a one with a flexible handle. As expected the razor provided me with the closest shave out of any razor I've used. That being said I have yet to feel any difference in the gimmicky additions Gillette makes to the standard fusion pro glide. The pulsing did not make a difference when shaving and I could not tell any advantage with having a pivoting head. To me this all seems like a marketing ploy to sell more razors

Better than expected

Honestly, when I first heard about the "proglide razor with flexball handle technology" (wow that is a mouthful, how about just "swivel handle"?), I laughed. It seemed extremely gimmicky, and while the name is quite over-engineered, the product itself is not. When I first opened the package from BzzAgent, I was quite surprised, the handle did not even seem to rotate much. It was kind of anticlimactic. The razor only swiveled a couple of degrees, yet I was expecting something much grander. Anyway, I tried it out. At first I wasn't too impressed. It seemed I was getting the same good shave I normally get from my Gillette Fusion razor. Then I realized. I just shaved all around my neck and didn't even notice. That subtle swivel made it much easier to get around my neck area, an area that is normally troublesome when shaving for me. Overall, it was a great experience, and while it is definitely a better experience then a normal Gillette Fusion, it is not anywhere near life changing. But, convenience is great, and the fact that these take the same cartridges as the Fusion, means that you just have to make a one time purchase of the handle and you are golden!

I tried the new Gillette Fusion Proglide Razor with flexible handle technology when they sent me one to sample, and all I can say is, "wow" what a great shave! I don't have an angular face so I can't really tell if the new fangled handle makes a difference on other types of faces, but the system works great for my egg shaped face. My only other experience getting a super close shave is when I get a shave with a straight razor at the hair place I visit. My old standby had been a Gillette Mach 3 turbo for many years. I always thought three blades was enough for my face and didn't see any point in going for the new fangled 5 blade systems. Now I'm happy to say I was wrong.

I'm impressed by the smooth shave that I get using the Fusion ProGlide Razor with FlexBall handle technology. It took some getting used to, but the FlexBall allows me to get a closer shave in the small lines and deeper contours of my face.

I have to admit I was a little apprehensive about using a razor with vibration, but it really made the shave feel closer. And from my experience I would say that it even helps the blades stay sharper longer. All in all it is a very nice shave! I would recommend it!

I am usually an electric razor type of guy. When the razor arrived,!i let my facial hair go for a few days. Broke out the new razor, and was quite surprised at the shave it gave. I was skeptical at the "new technology" that the razor possessed-come on, vibrating and a roller ball type of pivot? It really followed the contour if my face, and took the same time that an electric took to do the job.

So far so good! I'm enjoying the closeness of the shave. The FlexBall technology is a very interesting concept and one I dig because I've been able to get a closer shave with fewer cuts. I'd recommend this to all the guys I know.

Good for a disposable razor

I used it for about 3 weeks while I vacationed in Europe. The lubricant wore off about 2 weeks in, and afterwards it was simply unpleasant to use. I feel like the vibration part really didn't add anything to the razor's quality. The same for the ball bearing: my hand was already doing something similar, naturally. Overall, I would not purchase this. I'll stick with my electric shaver.

Thank you for your feedback. I'm sorry to hear that your shave became uncomfortable after the Lubrastrip had worn off. That's not something that we would expect. The Fusion ProGlide with FlexBall technology was designed to be more comfortable so I'm sorry to hear that you didn't experience that. I'll be sharing your feedback with my team. If you'd like to speak with us, we're available at 1-800-445-5388.
