    Hey guys,

    i am looking to get a backdragging edge added to my 7.5 western.

    I have read about hinged backdragging edges on another post. They seem to have some advantages, but i am not sure where to get one locally.

    For those of you who have the factory backdragging egde, how does it work for you? Should i just settle on using that or keep up the hunt for a hinged one?

    I bought the factory Western 8.5' and in my opinion it was a waste of my $$ and it adds more of a vibration noise (squeel if you will) when in use. I will never buy one again. I also saw those videos on the hinged ones and they look cool.

    I have the factory back drag edge on my 7'6 mvp pro ploy and it is going to be added to my 8'6 mvp pro ploy this week. I had no problem with the edge last year at all.

    I would take a look at the system i have. It is simple, and actually works.
