    I got the foil and love it. Never used the rubber. Foil is kinda a ripp off. But it works great.

    If you have an X blade, I think the rubber flap deflector is your only option (without fabrication work). The metal Snofoil is only made for the standard style Fishers. It would not be a direct bolt-on to an X blade, and might even be a problem in use due to the angle of the top edge of the moldboard.

    I want to buy a rubber for mine, but 280.00 for a piece of rubber!!!!!! I can't have a foil, I'm an animal stacking snow I'll crush the foil for sure.

    I have a rubber on it now and was thinking about a foil they make it in the aftermarket the rubber is not that much if you look around we bought enough for 2 plows and it was $80.00 bucks and a piece of alum for the top and some time the foil is $300.00 just not sure it will stop the blow over

    cut a piece out of an old conveyer belt. use flat iron on top.drill some holes to bolt it down & your good to go.Works with straight or V-blade. Hope this helps.

    rubber

    Currently using a cut down piece of conveyor belt...got it for free. Spent about 10 bucks in stainless steel hardware and going strong for three years now. I just used large fender washers I had laying aroundn to prevent tear out.
