Just got the metal tail grips. Are they supposed to be loose on the shaft? Do they tighten up when they spin from the force?

I bought the metal grips also and they have got to be the sloppiest grips I've ever seen but with some enginuety they turn out to be the best I've ever had, here is the deal I decided to put two set screws on each side but you have to be exact I measured it and it's 11MM from the end next to the hub one set scew on each side 3mm by that I mean a total of four screws,,tap it and screw it in with some thread lock and it tightens the whole thing up no wobble and it won't move back,, don't know why they didn't do this in the first place here is a pic, and what I like is the grips are only a few grams more than the plastic ones.

You can tighten up the plastic boom block on the XE as tight as it go's but have to be careful with the Horizontal fin because it applies pressure in one spot. It is best to replace the clamp/fin with a QuickUK or titan SE one and ditch the fin altogether.

I cant comment on the metal boom blocks as I have not tried them!

Yes the set screw is hitting the bearing and it takes all the slop out,they say it will tighten up on load but I think we all know that's bogus What I did was with the boom support part that hold the Horizontal fin is I honed out some of the plastic part that the fin goes on if you leave it factory and tighten it you may crack the boom hope that helps.

If you mean the metal option that supports the boom don't use them use the plastic ones

Using set screws to tighten bearings on bladegrips means it was not designed properly in the first place, this was meant to be an upgrade not something to tinker with.
