Wooh! I have a grey handled British Injectomatic and it's a champion - the angle is the same as the Schicks and it delivers a really comfortable yet very long lasting shave. Hope you enjoy your PAL too my friend!
The PAL looks like a Schick injector's funky little brother. It's almost straight like a stick the handle (to me) reminds me of a honey comb. Tell us how you think it shaves. I wonder what blade out of your stash you are going to use. I am a bad influence on you. Nice score pal!

It feels different to the Schicks and I think it demands a steeper angle, like my Personna. MJC & I have swapped out Personna/Pal Adjustables for a few shaves so we'll no doubt compare notes on those and with this one - I am interested to see how the PAL Adjustable compares with this one.
Top of the day. Well I just finished a dfs with it . Yup like a Schick G, just a tad milder to me. The handle was nice and in no way impeded using the razor. The shaving angle, feels a tad different to me but like all good injectors that's real easy to find.Safety bar--does a decent job stretching the skin ahead of the blade. 4 pass--the atg was very comfortable to do and the PAL did it quite well.Long strokes with no jumping. Good blade buffer It also did well whilst passing through the rubble of hell as it went over my chin, nice. Clean with a hot blast of water and Voila'. So would I recommend it? Yes. It beats out the Personna ss Star Trek razor ,imo, ymmv,but I prefer the PAL.The difference of 6 gms doesn't make a difference at all. So yes Virginia, there are other injectors that shave well.
Glad to hear the Injectomatic has worked out so well for you my friend! I have the Personna injector ( on loan from PJGH) queued up for tomorrow morning's shave, but I'm not holding out much hope... ...ASR got it so right with the Injectomatic. If only they'd consolidated that with later models and kept the same head geometry,instead of those beautiful but dissappointing stainless efforts...
Well CB, good thing your Injectomatic is going to be a keeper. The blade gap makes it look as if it's going to be aggressive. Seeing as how many gents of TOST like the PAL and compare it to a G model I can't wait to try mine. Your review gives me a positive vibe for the Injectomatic.
wchnu: If I liked him more I might actually feel bad about that.
