What do you guys use for tail blade shims? I decided to replace the stock tail blades on my Spectra G since they are getting close to ten years old. My landing struts started cracking and broke on a fairly soft autorotation landing from old age I think. So I started worring about the plastic tail blades but the new ones don't fit in the grips without some sort of a shim. I have some big thick washers that I think will work but I don't like the extra weight from the metal washers.

I use MinAir 3700-155. They were metal years ago, but the current washers are white plastic.

Thanks that looks like what I need. I made some shims out of some plastic I had. Next time I place an order I'll be getting those.
