Not 600's but...
I have flown the 710's and they are a much nicer feeling blade to me than the MS blades.
The MS blade is less rigid and they will flex a bit under load. So the cyclic and collective are not as crisp as the SAB's.

I have flown the MS 600's a bunch on my Sceadu before I sold it and they worked really well, but I didn't push the ship as hard at night as I did during the day either.
If I flew them during the day hard they were really noisy and a little "soft".
At night they were still noisy, but good enough for my more relaxed FAI kind of stuff I do at night.

All in all if you want a good crisp night blade and don't mind the few extra bucks the SAB's are the way to go.
If you are not that pickey save the $$$ and buy some MS night blades.

I have a set
you have to ask yourself.
1. The feel of the blades @ night?
2. Or the veiw?
3. Do you do enough of night flying?
4. What is the cost factors are you looking at?


SAB have the leds at the tips, feel about the same as the MS.
MS blades have the best look @ night
SAB will stay night blades, until you crash, the MS blades will become day blades.

2 LED's
The newest SAB's have the LED's in the tip and about 1/3 of the way back.
They look really cool IMO. Darker red than most MS blades I have seen also.
Wish I had some pictures of mine, but they met with an unfortunate accident DURING THE DAY. after 3 flights.

Hmmm...
Well I'll be dipped.
I was told all of them had the 2 LED's now.
That sucks...
Knowing that I would say get the MS blades. They will definately look better at night.
The single ring will disappear on you in a hurry.

Better yet wait for the new "message blades"

I've flown ms night blades before, but they flex quite a bit. I like to fly at night a lot and want something that can take more abuse.

Well...
Sad part is I think in the 600's right now SAB and MS are the only thing going.
MAH is supposed to be coming out with 600's, but I have not seen or flown any of those.
