I want a 48" viking they have ECS only (i think). I put my hands on them at the dealer, they felt ok. Im so used to pistols and they seem easier to man handle onto curbs ect. I did a search on this and read by L.G.F that Exmark is going to stop production on pistol grips. I guess I better get used to it, because ive been convinced that Exmark is the best. For those that have tried ECS what do you think?
