The Defender is not smooth, tugs and burns. I used both regular and sensitive blades, just not comfortable, Harry's is still the best.
I have to shave over spots to get an effective shave, I feel there is some defect in the make of the blades.
I would not recommend the Defender. It is only good when the beard is light but still hurts.
I do not have sensitive skin and never experienced the discomfort I have with the Defender.
I don't understand some of the rave reviews.
Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend
