    I have been looking at buying wings for my boss steel straight blade for a couple of weeks now, and am confused on which ones are better. I plow half of my contracts that are residential and the other half medium sized commercial lots. I just need something to reduce trail off and allow me to push lots of snow forward and not to the side. I like the new boss wings but are very expensive, i don't like the prowings, they look to weak and possibly not enough angle to hold snow it blade, and I cannot find any info. on turkey wings. any help would help me greatly. Thanks for your help.

    I faced the same decision. The BOSS wings are nice with a 30 degree forward angle and the prowings only have a 22 degree angle. The price difference made me look very hard at the prowings before I bought. I ended up with prowings and they work just fine. At first I didn't like the way they looked but I got used to them (and my wife liked the fact I didn't spend the extra $400). I haven't had much trail off with the prowings as I thought I might. They are plenty sturdy for 95% of the snow we see. It all boils down to what you think will work for you. I am happy with the decision I made.

    I`ve been hearing from other "plowers" that the PRO WINGS bend back when stacking snow.:rolleyes:

    It hasn't happened to me as of yet. They seem to help, able to keep more snow in front of the plow as you are pushing up the pile.
