Since Edgeblades is gone,i was thinking which blades would be ok for the dollar value.Some would say,some blade is better than the other.I don't know the truth to this as i never had any other blades but edge.I looking to find a 600 size blade and was looking at,Rail Blade,Halo and Cyclone blades.What you'll loving between the above?Welcome other 600-620 options as well

You can get Edge at RCJapan.net I believe.

I really like Cyclones BTW.
E820, Raptor G4N, X50F/E, E620, Forza 450, and some planks.

Depending on the blade they are usually weighted a little different and the airfoils are a little different. Some blades will be a little pitchy compared to others. Here is what we found. If you want to smack the crap out of it and nothing else the cyclones will do that well. They are a little stiffer than others. Rails are a great all around blade. They are a real smooth flying blade and a little quieter than others. They don't smack as hard as others. Helix blades are a good combination of both. They do everything well but are quite expensive. We fly the rails as for the price and the way they fly that is what worked best but if you are into hard smack the cyclones might be what you wantTeam Jr

Anthony,

I owned about 4 pairs of EDGEs, in different sizes, flew them in 700 and 600 helis, nitro and electric.

I also flown Rails, Radix, Rotortechs, Mavrikks, Hi-products, DH, Fun Tech, Thunder Tiger, VBlades, Falcon, and NHPs

Have tested a number of Falcon blades and they are the closest in feel and performance to the EDGE.
====================================================

Edit
Blades are like a pair of shoes, focused on the application and user's feet.

WHAT ARE YOU LOOKING FOR in a set of blades? Stability, Agility, Snap or punch off center stick?

Asking others what they like is like asking how they prefer their steak, will not give you usefull info. LaDon said essentially the same.

But what he is saying is basically the same thing I was getting at. What type of flying are you planning on doing? That is the thing we need to know in order to help you find what you need to do that with. Ultimately tho the final decision is yours.Team Jr

Even for smack, do you prefer agility, or collective pop.

Radix V2, good collective, good cyclic. Great for anything.
Edge, better collective, a smidgen slower in cyclic, & a hair draggier
Rails, also in the middle, softer collective, good cyclic
Mavrikks wide cord, aggressive collective, ok cyclic, very draggy, so you have to be very good at managing your inputs.
Cyclone, never owned a set but they are similar to the Mavrikks, not as draggy. Designed for smack.
Rotortech 3D, good stability, similar to the Rails.
Thunder Tiger 600-620mm FBL, actually a good blade, rigid, light and good for smack.

If you can swign 620, they give better collective, 600 yield faster cyclic.
The choise is yours.

Santiago said it all perfectly. Now you have some good info to work with. Ryan my kid does the Heli flying and we look for a blade that will do everything good but do it smoothly. That is why we use the rails. Doesn't smack as hard thoTeam Jr

If you do autos, blade choice results in tremendous differences. Edge was at the bottom of auto performance. Many others will auto noticeably better, and they are typically more efficient and smoother during flight.

IV always found the quietest blades perform best overall in every category.
Enjoy things that money can buy IF you don't lose the things money can't buy.
