flexball vs de razor

between the flexball power razor from gillette and those 1950s razors from gillette, which one would give a truly closer shave? do more blades truly mean a closer shave or not? would anyone happen to know since many of you guys say that de razors are somewhat better than modern blades..........?

You pay's your money, you takes your choice.... it's different way of shaving 1 blade v 3*/4*/5* (*delete as appropriate) but I'll stick to the single blade....

I get better results with a single blade, in fact I started with a DE after Googling “single blade razors”. I do not think that more blades make for a better shave and if I had to use a cart / disposable I’d be looking for the one with the fewest blades. I preferred the Gillette Sensor over the Mach 3 and the Mach 3 over the Fusion. None of them are as good as the Gillette Tech.

I had to google "flexball" - never heard of the term or razor before. Might be a better question in the Cartridge forum/section.
