    Do most of the professionals out there use just the straight blade on their stick edgers or do they use the the "star", "8 point", "serreted", etc. Are these other blades worth their weight in money or not worth it. Feedbacks will be greatly appreciated.

    straight blade here. The all burn down equally quick. A fatter one is better than a thin one. Other than that, cheaper is better.

    We use the cloverleaf blade. It has 4 blades on it. These out last the straight blades by a long shot. In a test of my own i went through 3 straight blades to 1 cloverleaf blade.

    My dealer for my stick trimmer sells the straight blades for about 2 bucks apiece. Didn't take me long to search for a better alternative. Lesco sells them by the case. I bought 50 blades, and they are thicker. The price each, you ask? How does .37 cents each sound to you? Much better than 2 bucks, and they last longer.
