So, i have a couple orphan Align 550 blades and just looked at them side-by-side with the EDGE 550s i'm currently using, and they appear to be identical.

Both have the same shape at the root/tip, the same chord, and the same thickness. If i hold one against the other, they mask perfectly. They even have the same size, shape, and location of unpainted CF where the brand stamp is.

are they the same blades?

Same moulding maybe but they may be different inside i.e. c/g, more lead, less lead etc etc.

They may look the same.. but they don't fly anything like the Edge's

I do not believe they are even made at the Funkey plant either like the Edges,Rotortech, Radix blades.

Surprised to hear that the chord widths are the same. Not a 550mm comparison, but the last time I had align 520mm and 523mm side by side I recall the edge blades were about 5mm wider then the align. In fact I think I still have remnants at home to check.

Fun-Key manufactures blades for other companies, to each company's specs.
