This is a great and very informative post if you decide to use a guard on your own head or if your barber is not sure.  It will be locked and left in this new forum for anyone looking for great info.  Thanks to all who posted the info.  Great stuff.
That which doesn't kill you makes you stronger or drives you totally insane. :-)
