Anyone here do wetshaving? I'm slowly transitioning into it from using disposables.
I'm using a Merkur double edged w/ Feather blades. I've tried a lot of stuff since my beard a real chore to deal with, and that's defnitely the combo I've had the most success with. Plus I'm saving a lot of money buying the Feather blades vs your usual triple/quadruple blade setups.
Takes a little bit of practice to perfect the wet shave, but if you're already in the process it shouldn't be too bad, just a matter of taking your time. Make sure you're using quality stuff for your lather (ie stuff you mix yourself, not the usual Barbasol stuff from a can) for beat results. There are plenty of Youtube vids on it that help a bit, after you get over he fact you're watching some dude in his bathroom grooming himself.

I am going to try some pre-shave lotions/oils and see if they help at all.
I find the Williams Lectric Shave oil helps some. Stiffens the hairs to stand up and go in an electric razor a little better.

Have you tried a straight razor at all? There's a lot of positive buzz about Merkur stuff everywhere I go when I research this stuff. I've gotten really annoyed with using disposables because they don't give me a close shave, and decided it's got to be a combination of technique and the equipment.
Straight razors seem classy, but perhaps more difficult to use. Safety razors seem more common and there's tons of helpful information (as you said, the youtube videos, which was a funny comment by the way). Basically I feel like I need to start using something more - for lack of a better word - manly.

Every other month or so I'll nick myself but I don't care, I'm not going to get ripped off by Gilette or Schick. Some of the nicks are pretty rough though, I won't lie...

It's sharp as hell. I hacked my face up a couple times getting used to it. But once you get the hang of it it'll be the closest shave you'll ever have. Just remember to take your time and work slow and the stubles will comes off like slicing through hot butter. It has a nice weight to it being stainless steal. It feels great to wield like a samurai with his katana.

In case it's not obvious, you can use the pro glide carts on the original Fusion handle. I have the battery one.
