The ones I bought from Curtis were in the center , I flipped it and put my new one behind it to double them up. That way I get longer wear between changing edges .

how about the old one, was that center bored ? also was it a trip edge plow or full trip? what do they charge for a new edge? mine is not in the center of the blade, if i were to flip it it would make the plow sit higher. I dont see it as being an issue with the height but was concerned with the trip edge being in the right postion.

I don't know Sno-Pro, but that sounds like a textbook description of a worn edge...do you remember if it was in the center when it was new?

Can you post a photo?
