My wife likes long chest hair, I hate it all. So I only do it a few times a year, or when I cant stand it any longer. For me its a balance between what I like, and what she likes. Especially at the gym, all sweaty and yick! ill pass on the hair forever. Brent I too use the the #1 from the neck down, that's why it takes so long, its a lot of surface to cover with anything less than a weed wacker! I think this is what I am going to do and I do certainly appreciate everyone's opinions and all the options.
