... is written on the box.(710mm carbon graphite)

Found spanwise cg out by a full 1/8" and overall weight's out by just under one gram (via Ohaus Triple-Beam + K&S balancer)

I had "Foamies" closer than this out of the box.

Blades are balanced now and ready to go, but I would like to ask if this is to be expected from an expensive set of blades?

Thank You

If I received an "expensive set of blades" that far off, I would immediately be exchanging them for a different pair. We pay too much for these blades to be accepting that much of a mismatch.

Personally, I'm a bit peeved if they are off by more than 0.1 g and 1/32" on CG location.

Thanks John!

I guess not many people will be using 710mm blades for their first time out. But...You never know! A newbie might read the box, put them on, and have a bad experience. This is why I got ticked off about printing "pefectly balanced, ready to use" on the box. A company can sluff it off as a "bad set", but that doesnt cut it with me. Safety first! Then let your cash register chime!
