    Silver Streaks are thinner, I believe, and I'm positive theye are much softer than the Exmarks, meaning they will dull easier.
     
  3. They are the same thickness, the width is less.

    Less weight to spin.

    The pitch on the lift is greater for more lift.

    Lawngodfather have you ever tried the solid foil excalibers?
    is there a noticable difference in the silver streeks over the notched exmarks? thanks again guys!
     
  5. No I haven't tried those.

    I don't like to change things that work well too often.

    Tom,
    What did you say the price on those Excaliburs was again? Man, I priced a set of the Tungsten steel blades the other day, and they were like 30 some odd dollars apiece! WOW!

    Runner,

    Don't have the reciept handy (too lazy to get up and find it!) But they were $10 and change each. By the time you figure in shipping, my dealer is cheaper than most mail order catalogs, plus the catalogs DO NOT have Excaliburs.

    Next ......

    Tell me/us more about these Tungsten blades!!! Where, who, how much...
