:devil: hello i was wondering does anyone own a Blade i have read little on this machine and was wondering who it stacks up to other brands of snowmobile the thing must be fast 800c engine in 418 pound body thanks alot have a great season
I have a 2003 Blade HPO. It is not as fast as you would think with the light weight because of the M16 (16 inch M10). M10's are desinged for bump absorbtion and do not really hook up as well as most skids. The misunderstanding about the Blade is that should be the fasting thing out there. It is a fun, lightweight sled that is easy to ride. I hate bumpy crap trails at the end of the day and this eats them nicely. It's a great high mile sled. Mine is a longtrack. It's not worth as much as you pay for it, but it is a great sled. Mine weighs 142 lbs. It seems the other manufacturers are pretty much catching up, but the whole package works great. The front suspension is awesome!
