    I have an XLS and I upgraded my wings edges to Jerres Polar Edges. 40 or so hours of run time on them and no wear at all. They are not cheap, but I have heard of other guys buring through the factory wing edges pretty quick.

    I have no wear on these edges and I have ran them for over 40 hours, maybe more as I lose track of time when your up for hours on end. For replacement factories edges cost around $230 to 260 for a set. I think they are worth the money and they also come with the awesome curb guard built into them. I have talked to guys who are on there 3rd season with a set of Jerres Polar Edge Wings. I believe in the product and would suggest them to other plowsiters.

    I'm one that is on my 3rd season with a set(on a wideout). I doubt that I make it the rest of the winter on em, but neither will my main edge....they are wearing at the same rate. Even though they are pricey, well worth it imo.
