They work good on the 600. Been using the fiberglass ones. The pairs I have, have a thicker root than most blades, which can be a good thing or a bad thing depending on how you look at it. For $60, they are the cheapest good working blades on the market.

I watched Eddie crash a 450 4-5 times in a row the other day. The first 4 times on wood blades, and the last time on the align cf ones. He did manage to note that he liked the blades alot before the last crash.

So You could note from that, that they are better than woodies for sure.

I have yet to try the ones for the 450 for myself. I still have the "new old real CF with yellow writing and clear resin" version on mine

huh!

i thought these were the "new real" carbon fiber align blades...

i guess these ar ethe "new new real" carbon fiber align blades

they sure as hell do look really sweet though and the weights between the two were only .5g off. my woodies were usually .1g to .2g different between the blades. the new new carbons are also about 1.5 grams heavier per blade too...

im leaving the woodies on for now. i will fly a battery on the woodies then change out and track the new carbon fibers to get a good feel for em.

Many of us are flying and loving them at our field. I had a lower jesus bolt break yesterday; the resulting crash stuck both blades six inches into the ground. Total damage: none, not even a scratch on either blade: they fly great too.
