    I don't know first hand...I've heard alot of guys say they are well worth it, but I DO know that I'll be purchasing one pretty quick, here. I'm getting ready to change my wearbar, so I will be doing it all at once - along with new edges for the pro-wings.

    Do a search @ this site for backdrag. You'll find some good info. Some of
    us feel that a "hinged" homemade backdrag is better than a store bought.

    I made mine. Haven't had a chance to try it yet, because all it does here
    in Northern Indiana is RAIN! :realmad:

    i would recommend a back drag on any plow you own,, ive had one on my old western,, it was store bought ,, i think a shop made them , was made from a cutting edge with hinges it worked really good , would stand up on edge when i backed up , lay flat wheni was going forward,,, now i have a regular western,, on my new 8 ft pro plus , its fixed doesnt move,, it wears down same rate as my cutting edge, it works good , id deffinlty have one on any plow , :cool:
