    Have you guys used them before? I do not have any experience with them and am wondering if they are worth while.

    I used to have them on my Fisher Speedcast's. Fishers don't back drag very clean, so it was a must doing driveways. Westerns have a more agressive attack angle...not sure you'd need one.

    I have one on my midweight and i love the thing. I think for the lighter plows they are worth the money. Although mine back drags better then my friends pro plus - he doesn't have the back drag edge.

    I have one on my Boss. it works ok. any plow that does not have down pressure is going to ride up eventually. The backdrag edge helps it bite a little bit better. for what they cost I'm not sure if I'd buy another one. The only downside is it'll get hooked on edges and cracks, and the plow doesnt really trip backwards, so watch out for that. If you hit a good crack it'll stop the truck dead.
