    I've been using the Diamond trip edge for years. Been very good plow for me and I have used all the major brands. Any plow will have problems if it isn't maintained or is abused.

    The trip edge is easier on your truck in that the whole plow does not slam down and spring back up if you happen to hit something, the bottom edge simply gives way. The other big advantage is that if you trip the bottom edge you will not lose the entire load on the plow.
    Downside....I really can't think of anything, but I am sure there are others who will be along with cons that I have not thought of or encountered.
