OK guys, after much deliberation (and procrastination) on my part, I pulled the trigger on my Edge Pro order!
I got the Professional model with the full set of Diamond Matrix stones, both the Slide Guide and Small Knife Attachment, and the leveling kit with both the 240 alox and 60 grit sic powder. In 2019 the Pro systems came standard with the removable magnets already built into the base, so that's another plus!
The system should be here by Wednesday or Thursday, and I'll be sure and post some thoughts and comparisons.
This is should be interesting, as I've used the WE for years. I know it will take some getting used to the new system, but I'm looking forward to trying something new.
Thanks again for all who posted here, and please feel free to share any other tips you guys come up with!
I've just found this thread, and read with interest. I've been going through similar thoughts...where I've been using the WE Field and Sport Pro over last several years, but have been interested in the EP Professional. If you have a moment, I'd really like to hear your recent thoughts/feelings between the two systems now that I assume you have some time on your new EP.
