    I have the original Proslide and I need a new wear plate. On their website I can order the XT wear plate. Does anyone know if the XT's wear plate will fit on the original Proslide? Thanks for your help.

    It will fit, but won't work well. The spring on the original are not strong enough to retract the plate with the extra thick wear plate. You should get a new XT, it is much better built, although I loved the originals too. The XT wear plate last 3 times as long for me.

    Would it work to buy XT springs that would hold up the extra weight? I just don't really want to spend $400 if I can spend $40.

    No, that won't work at all. Everything, like where the springs fit, is re-designed. The original Proslide is still darn good. Just hold on to it, but some extra parts for that, they are all available!
