Looking to replace my Benzin 725 blades with another brand if possible. I like the Vario blades, but i am on a fixed income and at $235 for a set of blades, well, its a little pricey. Rotor Tech makes a set of 720 blades for about a $115 less. Has anyone used these on there Benzin? Any other blades you can recommend.
I also have a post in gassers.

In my search for a less expensive set of blades for my benzin, i saw a set of Mavrikk G5 710 wide cord blades, on a MA gasser at the field i fly at. The width looks to be the same as the Vario's, but the length is 15mm shorter, and the weight is not as heavy. 710 seems to be the largest Mavrikk makes. I might have asked the pilot if i could try them, but i didn't know him. I also didn't have my benzin with me. So, do you think i could use these blades, or should i stick with Vario. There also over a $100 cheaper.

Are you sure about 710 blades on the Vario?
I use 800 blades on my Benzin trainer.

These blades may be a good alternative. They are symmetrical and therefore can be used for both left and right hand rotation helicopters.

Vario at one time made two sizes of Benzin Trainers. One took 725mm wide chord blades, the other 800mm. They have since discontinued the smaller gasser after they introduced the Acrobatic, and that comes in two sizes, 725mm main, and 800mm mains. I believe the OP has the smaller regular benzin, but not sure.

At the time i bought my two Benzin Trainers there was a 725 and an 800 size. This was about 12 years ago.
Like i said in my original post, i am living on a fixed income, so i have to watch what i spend. If need be i will go for the Vario blades. I just thought i might be able to save some money getting another brand.
The two Benzins i bought 12 years ago, i still have them. Great flying heli.
