I have had 3 foils in a year and a half. I use the cleaning station after every shave once a day and still get a tear or hole in the foil. I always change the foil and cutter block together. Braun has replaced one foil at no charge. I agree with other reviews of foil redesign since the original that came on my series 5. When I had series 3 I would replace foil every couple years.I might try the new series 7 but hope for a better foil.
No, I do not recommend this product.
At 1/3 the cost of the shaver, each of these replacement foil and cutter-block kits is a poor value given it's construction. The replacements do not fit as well in the shaver head as the original component, and their performance is still only marginally better than the worn-out original. The longevity of the replacements is also 12 months at best rather than the prescribed 18 months.
Each time I buy a replacement foil and cutter the foil wears out faster with each new set. I used to get 18 month+ out of a set and now I only get barely 6 months, I use spray oil regularly. I noticed the foil design has changed since I first bought this shaver and it's the newer design that does not last.
