And in the vain of making the CX2 more crash resistant, I'm looking at the Xtreme swivel blades with holders. Have people had good luck with these? It appears that I've been infected with the mod bug.....
The Xtreme bracket is a little different. At least you can buy just that and not have to fork over $$ for a whole assembly if that's not what you want. I also don't use an O-Ring. In truth, I think mine is an early Boomtown one, but I never got an O-Ring with it. I had no idea how it was supposed to work, so, I improvised.
No offense, but the pivoting blade grips, were supposed
to be the FIRST thing you bought!! The stock blades are a nice idea, but they break if you look at them wrong, and Mike is ALWAYS
looking at them wrong!!
