    I don't run either one, so this is not first hand just an opinion. But when I look at them the only difference for me is trip edge vs trip blade. I perfer trip edge so would go fisher xls.
    Can the wide-out even trip in scoop?
    Similar if the xls trips in scoop, is that hard on the wing's rubber edges?

    The XLS has a trip edge that is a huge advantage IMO.
