Used X-blade - how are the poly ones?

    I've been on the lookout to upgrade to an X-blade from my HD, and have mostly seen stainless and one older steel one. However, I've seen a few poly ones and wanted to see what people's thoughts are as far as durability etc. Never had a poly plow, or none someone who has, so wanted to see. I did a search in this forum and it doesn't appear to have been mentioned at all, which seems hard to believe...

    So, thoughts/comments/experiences? Essentially trying to figure if its worth going with to save $500 or so compared to a SS version.

    I saw a picture on here of a branch that went through a poly moldboard. Made my decision right there.

    I ran poly plows for 10 years and they never cracked or got a hole in them from an type of object hitting them. I would have no problem buying another one in the future.

    Also, snow will not stick to a poly moldboard.
