Gillette Fusion Available in Chicago
ShavingStuff reader Chris has written in to say that the new 5-bladed Gillette Fusion is now available at Costco in Chicago. I was under the impression that the national launch was next Sunday during the Superbowl, but perhaps they're seeding the market early.
Just wanted to see if anyone spotted the Gillette Fusion yet and have tried it. I thought it was going to be out in a week or so. However, I was at Costco in Chicago today and they had a huge crate of them sitting out. I was somewhat surprised.
So, if you want to be the first kid on the block with the cool new tool, head on over to Costco and score yourself some cred.

I got my Fusion last night (1/26/06) in Houston. I used it and I think it's a winner. The blade cartridge is much larger but the individual blades are about 50% smaller than the Mach3 Turbo. The shave feels much different than the M3T. Maybe it was because it was a new cartridge, but the shave seemed closer with less razor burn.
The single blade on the back is a great addition too, but I think it will take some practice to get the perfect sideburns.
