On my 12S Logo 600SE I noticed my main blade grip bolts have bent, I guess from the 693 blades I'm swinging, have any of you seen this?

Yes it happens, what RPM do you run? I found 12.9 grade bolts from a bolt shop stronger than mikado bolts

Here's a tip too, run 14mm root blades like 693mm insane's.
12 mm root blades put more stress on the bolt.

Thanks, NTM, I'm running Edge 693's which are 12mm.

Well, I suppose it doesn't really make a difference until you take them out since it's unlikely you'll get them back in with the "bend" in the right orientation, the bend is really shallow and I doubt it would change the flight characteristics.
