Just bought SAB carbon blades for my Raptor 50V2.
But I am wondering if I should have bought longer blades ???
It says Raptor 30/50 blades on the package
These are 80mm...

80mm are too short for a r50, a r50 should be pulling at least 85mm tail blades. the longest tail blades that a r50 can run are 92mm

try some 92mm hirobo freya tail blades.

Thanks Blakka_1
But I couldn't wait and I've already broke the package and installed them, so I guess returning them are out of the question.
I am going to buy longer blades, but the 80's are better than the stock "plastic fantistic" blades ??

Update :
After flying with these blades for 2 months, I just changed the SAB 80's with Carbon Tech 92'!
And ... Wow!
What a difference. The 80's were as blakka_1 said.. to short!
Piro's in FFF is fun now
