Oster®️ Fastfeed/Speedlines Clipper Review

First off, let’s clear the air about a common question many barbers may have. The Oster® Fast Feeds and the Oster® SpeedLines are the same clipper. They just have different aesthetics to them. The Fast Feed’s has a burgundy body with a black and silver logo plate towards the silver blade. The Fast Feeds resemble the classic barbershop aesthetic. The SpeedLines have a black body with a black and gold logo plate with gold blade. These clippers have more modern and bold look to them.

Pros:

  • Very quiet and calming
  • The body of the clipper is ergonomically shaped for a comfortable grip
  • Lightweight and not as dense as Wahl 5-Star Seniors

  • Great for personal usage

Cons:

  • Struggles with debulking thick and long hair

  • Guards are fairly cheap in quality

Modifications: There are a few things that will improve the quality and experience when using this clipper.

    1. Andis Ceramic BladeClick here to purchase31ygE-4mCcL
    • This blade will remain sharp longer because metal blades are malleable
    • Reduce over heating of blades
    • Cleaner tapers and fades
    • Closer cut because they are slightly longer than the standard Fastfeed/Speedline blade.
  1. Andis Magnetic GuardsClick here to purchasec5fdcc70-9456-4a5f-96cb-041e1e220a03_1.cf27b53fc333153c9f324c9c9a90a354
    • These magnetic guards are more durable than the guard set that comes with the Fast Feed/Speedlines.
    • Combined with the ceramic blade will operate smoothly together
    • Applicable to many other different clippers

Final review:

Very great clipper for beginner barbers. This was my first clipper and I learned a lot of the basic techniques and developed muscle memory with these clippers. It is a very comfortable clipper due to its lightweight. Compared to the Wahl 5-Seniors and Andis Masters; this clipper falls in 3rd place when it comes to power, and precision. I think the FastFeeds and SpeedLines can limit you as a barber. For barbers that want to reduce their time on one head during busy hours; this is not the best clipper to use. This is great for personal use also. One of the most affordable professional clipper
