Moving to freehand stones from my edge pro after I move this next weekend.

I had some shaptons for my EP set up LOVED them.

So... pro or glass and why?

IIMO go pro they offer a bit more feedback and with more material will last longer.

I haven't gotten to use a pro, I love my GS tho. Obviously from looking the pro's are thicker so theoretically they should have a longer life. I'm sure you won't be disappointed by either.

The GS stones cut much quicker & dishes less - this should add to longevity.

Also a better all rounder that fits most steels of a harder nature.

I for one will never go back to the Shapton Pro's.

As an overall group, I liked the Glass stone's better than the Pro's. Some of the Pro's are amazing and better than their equivalent GS.....but some suck ass too which none of the GS's do. :)

The difference when looking at modern powdered steels are kinda a moot point.

They both the same abrasive , meaning they have the same limiting factors (steel hardness and carbide size)
The GS have slightly higher abrasive density , and release this slightly faster.

IMO the question becomes do you want to pay for 4mm of abrasive or 17mm?

I bought the chosera edge pro. when the chorsera stones wore out, i bought a glass stone EP set to replace them. I then bought a full size 320 grit pro stone. Then I bought a full size 4k glass stone. Then I bought the full size glass stone set: 500, 1k, 6k. I am happy with my choices.
