Thank you everyone for your help and suggestions. Barb your sugggestion was spot on. I bought the Bravura that you suggested and after a little learning curb I am back in business with my four Bichons successfully groomed. I am not in love with the plastic combs so I think I will go find the stainless steel comb tuckie said are awsome, and I did steer clear of the red color, the last thing I want is to think I clipped my babies skin.
After using my new Bravura I was amaised that they cut like butter gliding so fast that it took 1/2 the time to groom. It made me realise just how bad the speed feed blades had gotten and just how slow my old sf clippers were. So I will lay to rest my old fathful tool and embrace the new.
The Bravura recharge is lightning fast compared to the hours long battery charge of the sf, but the blades do run a little hot (really warm) which I never saw on the sf. It isn't a big problem when I use the comb attachment mostly. My only slight issue is the on/off switch is placed so that I turned the clipper off several times by error flipping the clippers around in my hand, and the blade popped off when I hit a snag in the hair ( my bad I didn't catch a few small matts), I wonder is this happening because I am using the longer comb attachments or just a learning curb. I never had the sf pop off so eazily?
Tuckie, thank you for your kind offer, I am still contemplating weather or not I want to mess with the sf. I have quite a few brand new blades and I do love the sf just wondering if it was the handset that slowed down or the blades that slowed the hand set down. I will contact you directly soon.
So glad I found this groomers board, you have some really great members and loads of great info.
