Default What blades you use on your X50

I am currently looking at ordering something nice.

I see Bob is flying 606 Rails. How do they perform Bob? Recommended over Edges or SAB?

I am looking at SAB but those are quite hard to find on stock.
Alternative (which i will likely choose i think) is Edge. Honestly i was thinking of getting full Edge fitting (main blades, tail and paddles). Is it worth of getting tail blades and paddles from Edge too? How much performance wise will the heli behave differently?
How to even measure tail blades? Edge fitment guide states very nice measures that are totally off for X50. My paddles for sure are not 83mm long...

What about other brands? Radix, SWE, MS Composit, Rotor Tech. Anything worth of trying?

EDIT : Also there are flybar and flybarless editions. Should i really stick with flybar ones if i have flybar?

KouDy,

I'm back to flying Edge blades. They have the narrowest chord as far as I could find. Wider chord blades and I haven't gotten along well.

Tail blades for .50 size should be around 95mm. Paddles can vary a lot depending upon what "feel" and response you're after.

IMO, you should use FB blades on a FB bird.

KouDy,

Depending upon your flying style, if you're not into 3D and don't want it to be snappy, FBL blades on a FB bird might be the ticket.

Not doing 3D, just learning flying at all. Now question about FBL on FB machine is because with current FBL madness shops here have FBL versions of blades but not FB ones...

FBL blades on a FB machine should give added stability and be less responsive in cyclic.
