Anybody got a new brinley blade? Do you like it? Hold up very well? Found one for half the price of a new one. Its never been used. Everything is there.

 

Looks like the one in the picture.

They are fine for what they are... But they are built a little on the light side 

I use mine with a set of end caps and some weight.  Works a lot better.

 

For half price, I would go ahead.  You should be able to resell later if you don't like how it preforms.

Depending on how hard you plan to work it, it may just be great!

The price doesn't sound bad.  I had an old one, but never a new one.  However, they always hold their value fairly well, so I don't think you have too much of a risk.

I have an older one with the sides, I have never used it though. I think that for the price you would be safe, and could make your money back if you do not like it.

I have one I bought at a garage sale for $5.  Works ok in lose gravel but I could see it bending easily. Used it on one of my Power Kings with down pressure hydraulics - that gives it real attitude.  I give it a passing grade.
