Shock absorber on fisher trip edge

    Has anybody tried mounting some sort of damper, say between the two trip edge springs on either side of the plow to try and minimize the violence of the spring recoil on their plow? I am new to the x-blade and only complaint is this. I used to have a western and found the full blade trip with shock absorber to be equally functional and much less (seemingly) destructive.

    i bet that would be nice. but fisher has never run one i have seen. and no bad efects i have seen before also.

    fist time i plowed with a fisher trip edge and hit somthing i stoped and got out and checked my stuff. figured i broke somthing. it sure is diffrent.

    would be nice thow to slow it down just a bit like the westerns do tho.
