    I could be wrong, but I doubt anyone can compete pricewise with the mass produced units from CPW, ESI, etc. All punched out, just bolt on.

    Oh yeah, to answer your question, no.

    I picked up an 810 and was told about $500-600 for all 3 edges

    Ouch. It's almost $300 for the XV, another $250 or so if you add the backdrag blade. I have no idea how much the wing edges are
