BRP Alpine Flex Plow Worth it or not?

I am contemplating purchasing a alpine flex plow and would like to hear from people who have one what they think of it?

Pro's/Con's, are they happy with the purchase?

I believe there were a couple of people hear last winter that had one, and they were happy. Pretty expensive though, IMO.

I am also thinking of ordering the alpine. I like the way it hooks up and in hooks so fast. But would like to know how it pushes snow.

I only got about a months worth of use out of mine last year but really like it. Got to push some heavy wet late season snow to without a problem. I got the rubber guard on mine which I highly recommend. It helps to roll the snow keeping it from spilling over the plow.

I've been looking at the warn provantage. Just something about a polyurethane plow I dont like. For the price you could have a warn plow too

This plow is way more durable than you may think. It also has some flex to it, which helps it absorb some of the energy when hitting inanimate objects...or packed ice. There is no way I'd buy a steel plow after having this one. I pushed a LOT of snow with mine last year.

I just put mine together so I haven't plowed with it yet. I got 20% off from my dealer on all accessories when I purchased my quads so I think I got a good deal. It looks great sitting in my garage!

It wasn't easy and in hind sight I think I'd try and come up with a better option than all the grinding I did. Here's my thread showing how I got it to work.
Finally got my Ricochet skids installed WITH my apline flex plow mount
