Personally I would look for a Pro-x..2003.. At haydays you can get good deals, just be careful at what youre looking at.

Between the edge and the MXZ they will be pretty similar. What size motor are you looking at?

I have a nice '02 blue/yellow edge x 700 with 1100 miles. But waiting until late fall to sell it for $3000. And yes, the 700 is powerful. bj.hardy has one of these as well, I'm sure he has a few good things to say

i love mine, the 02 edge has advanced timing giving it more hp, i belive the 700 has around 136hp which is 5 less the the 800 that year, i have a 42 bottom gear epi yellow spring and 10-64's an i can keep up w/ a 08 700 efi dragon and walk away from it at speeds above 105, i havd had it up to over the 120 on the speedo, but understand that is about 10% more then actual, so around 105-110 at very very most, i love mine, how tall are you? i am about 6,3 and it was a tad short so i found a shorty seat an installed it, it worked awesome, and it got alot of looks on the trail if oyu have any other questions lemme know, i also have pics of mine on my gallery if you wanna take a look at it.

3 grand sounds a bit steep for a 10 year old edge....that cash would get you a nice pro-x or even an IQR

I'm pretty confident in my selling abilities, I won't have to deviate much from the asking price. I've never not sold a sled. I would never be able to get away with pricing it at 3 grand if it wasn't the blue/yellow edge x package. My price just has to be lower than someone else's for the same sled, which isn't hard to do.

100% go with the Edge. You will not be dissapointed. I ride with 2 MXZ's in my group and they don't even compare to an edge in any category! Plus the Edge always has the ability to accept a triple and then you will have the best combination possible!

Have you ever ridden an Edge? There is no comparison. Especially in the power category. There 600 and 700's don't even compare to a Liberty motor power wise.
