Preliminary inspection report: These seem like decent blades. Construction overall seems fair to decent. I don't see any major flaws or concerns other than one blade has some chips in the paint where the brass insert in the blade root is, and the spacer itself is about 1mm raised on one side, leading to a 1mm detent in the other side of the root. I may try to get it down, but it should compress when they are installed as well. Going to ask Larry or one of the other guys about this paint chipping is this anything to worry about? I just did a quick check of them as I didn't have time to do anythign else. Overall, I was pleasently surprised as I've boughten cheap blades before and gotten hunks of garbage I wouldn't install for fear of them falling apart on spoolup. Not really sure why I bought these other than curiosity, as I have several sets of Radix 710SB and 710mm Mavrikk G5Pro wide cords, and one set of MAH G2's. Will update when I fly these and see how they are. and update review. So far better than expected, but the proof is in the pudding, and if they fly bad I'll let u know.

I dont suffer from mental iIlness, I actually enjoy mine!

Probably chalk this up to you get what you pay for. 700mm blades for less then price of 430mm, something gives.
