Ok, so, this started on an adventure walking around town to find clipper blades for my coach's clippers, and the only thing I found in the store were any of the wrong brand, wrong size, and OUTRAGEOUSLY priced! My coach's small clippers also don't have blades that are being made for them anymore, so I decided while I'm forced into ordering some blades online for her, I might as well get myself some of my own clippers!
My coach has 2 Oster clippers, one small one (face/legs/ears) that the blades are in production for anymore, and one monster one (body), and she swears by Oster. So I'm looking at oster ones for compatibility (should one of us be in need of a blade), and because I'm used to them. I also know that I'm most likely never going to need anything but a 10 since I don't do balding or anything like that, and these are mostly used for bridle paths and fetlocks, and beards in the winter. Just a few questions.
Why do some clippers have multiple speeds? What's the purpose of that? What stroke speed would be best for me? Why?
What's a Cryotech blade?
Here are the 4 I'm looking at:
Oster Adjusta-Groom horse Clipper - Blue
Oster Power Max 2 Speed Clippr - Silver
Oster Golden A5 Heavy Duty 2-Speed Clipper w/Blades - n/a - n/a
Oster Turbo A5 Two Speed Clipper
