Tonneau Cover Type
What type of tonneau cover do you need depending on the way you use your truck? Both RetraxPro Mx and Pace Edwards Switchblade are hard retractable tonneau covers.

Hard retractable tonneau covers, which are made of aluminum, tend to be much lighter than their fiberglass counterparts. This makes them easier to open and close and reduces wear and tear on your truck’s components.

Warranty
When it comes to warranties, RetraxPro Mx offers a limited lifetime warranty on their covers. On the other hand, Pace Edwards offers a one-year warranty on its covers. If you are looking for a cover with a more extended warranty, Retrax Pro is the way to go. Both warranties are to the original owner and are non-transferable.

Fitment
One of the most important things to consider when choosing a tonneau cover is whether it will fit your truck. RetraxPro Mx covers are made to fit a variety of truck makes and models. Pace Edwards Switchblade covers are also made to fit a variety of truck makes and models. However, you need to check before purchasing to find the perfect match.

Exterior Finish
The exterior finish of your tonneau cover is important for two reasons. First, you want it to look good on your truck. Second, you want it to be durable and last a long time. RetraxPro Mx covers have a matte powder coat finish that is UV protected.

This means that your cover will not fade in the sun and is less likely to scratch. Pace Edwards Switchblade covers have a vinyl grain tonneau finish that is also UV protected. Both finishes are durable and will look good on your truck for years to come.

Lock Mechanism
The type of lock mechanism on your tonneau cover is important for security and ease of use. RetraxPro Mx covers have a patented locking system that is integrated into the cover. This system is secure and easy to use. It has a key lockable in any position that gives you unlimited flexibility in your hauling capacity.

Pace Edwards covers have a locking tailgate that secures the cover in the closed position. This locking system is also secure and easy to use. However, it does not give you the same flexibility in hauling capacity as the Retrax Pro locking system.

Material
The material of your tonneau cover is important for several reasons. The RetraxPro Mx tonneau cover is constructed from industrial-strength aluminum slats that provide unsurpassed strength and ruggedness.

The Pace Edwards Switchblade cover is made from aluminum slats with a weather-resistant polymer overlay. The polymer overlay is bonded to the aluminum slats for a high-quality finish. Both materials are durable and will last for years.

Installation
The installation process for the Retrax Pro is simple and can be done in about an hour. The Pace Edwards Switchblade cover also has a simple installation process that can be done in about an hour.

Both brands offer easy-to-follow instructions and all the necessary hardware for installation. Neither brand requires drilling for installation.

Weight Capacity
The RetraxPro Mx can support up to 500 pounds of evenly distributed weight. The Pace Edwards cover can support up to 200 pounds of evenly distributed weight. If you plan on carrying heavy loads, the Retrax Pro is the better option.

Profile
The RetraxPro Mx has a patented low-profile design that enhances the appearance of your truck. The Pace Edwards Switchblade cover also has a low-profile design that enhances the appearance of your truck. If you are looking for a sleek and stylish look, either brand will work. Most importantly, both tonneau covers give you full bed access if needed.

Our Observation
The main difference between RetraxPro Mx and Pace Edwards Switchblade is in the warranty period. The Pace Edwards Switchblade offers a one-year warranty against defects and RetraxPro Mx comes with a legendary lifetime guarantee. Another big difference is in the weight capacity.

In our opinion, the RetraxPro Mx is the better tonneau cover. It has a more extended warranty, can support more weight, and has a sleek, low-profile design. However, both brands offer high-quality tonneau covers that will look great on your truck and give you the protection you need.

Although Pace Edwards Switchblade is a close second, we believe Retrax Pro is the better cover for most people. If you have any questions about which tonneau cover is right for you, don’t hesitate to contact us; we would be happy to help. Thanks for reading!
