    Hey guys. I have a 21 foot pole saw. It came with the silky hayauchi blade. Ive replaced it a few times. But at $85 per i would love to find something cheaper or longer lasting even if its not as good. Ive seen the Samurai Sumo 16" blade at around $30. Is that a good alternative or can anyone recommend some other blade to try? thanks, jon
