    I personally don't think hairy is a good look on a skinny guy. Unfortunately for me I am pretty damn hairy. I tried shaving my chest/butt once......worst decision ever! I had razor burn like a mofo. Now I just trim. But it's still stubbly.


    What do you personally do?

    And to all the naysayers, yes hairy is good. But only on certain people.

    I would say trim it so its short but not so short that it feels like stubble.

    Yeah I don't think I can ever have that smoothness factor. Ah well

    Just as smooth as a blade, but without the razor burn. And the replacement heads are cheap.

    If price isn't an issue, go with the Bodygroom Pro. Once my "standard" version wears out, that's what I'll replace it with.

    I have a BodyGroom, too. It lets you shave smooth with a foil head, or trim short to different lengths. I use it to shave my balls, trim my underarms, and trim my upper chest when the hairs get frizzy & gnarly (an occupational hazard of old men). It works dry or wet in the shower if you prefer.

    I have a BG2040 Pro. It's OK, but oddly I don't think its battery is the best in the Norelco line. And the trimmer portion seems a little flimsy, though I haven't broken it yet. The charging stand is folding and very strange, but I guess that's for travel since you need it to charge. Yet it didn't come with a travel pouch or case, as I recall, or at least I can't find where I put it.

    Weird. I have the 2030 and it's battery lasts long enough to shave my entire body (about 1 hr cause I'm really bushy) and still has battery life left.

    LMAO! Well I hope we can meet again. At which time I'll gladly bring my BodyGroom Pro along, so you can check it out. (Well, depending on where we might meet, kinda awkward to bring it into some places. "Is that your Norelco BodyGroom, or are yah just glad to see me?")

    The BG2040 lists a battery life of 50 minutes. Oddly the online Overview says it charges in 1 hour, but the Specifications say 8 hours, and that's what my instruction sheet says. I don't think the battery is lithium ion.

    Hmmm...maybe I'll just stick with my 2030. It's lasted 2 years so far, and only had to replace the head once (and have a another spare on standby just in case).
