I have a Western 8' Pro Poly and so far, don't know if I made the right choice. For one, I figured the snow wouldn't stick to it as much but have found this not to be entirely true. Snow does stick to it, especially wet snow. Second, it is quite easily damaged. The lots and drives I plow are clean yet I have already punched a couple of holes in the blade. A replacement cost upwards of $350.00. From what I can see the only advantage of the poly blade is its resistance to corrosion and not having to sandblast and paint the blade.
