Have you tried them? they are not the carbon fiber ones.

The linkage set look promising, my linkages get bent with the MH head. I don't know if it matters though, as long as they hold.

I haven't tried the blades, but based off what I've read you should stay away.

I am currently using the AEO links and I like them a lot, they seem to fit better on the balls, so much so that they will break before they pop off. I'm currently running an HP05, which will break a link every time I crash if Im not fast enough with the TH.

You can also buy them for $2.20 from hobbypartz.com

Those blades are a few mm shorter than stock blades, I tried them yesterday. I won't be using them again, they don't have the same pop as other blades do.
As they are shorter you should be able to increase the pitch range to compensate for that though.

They feel softer than stock blades do they might be good for beginners that brake stock blades.

Yes, if you peel the decal off the blade , the back side of the blade is cut away,

Aero make some cheap replacement blades too... Not tried them but that's another option.

I will be buying a bag of the aeo links to try out - id like something slightly stiffer than stock.

I've tried aeo bullet blades. Vibrations are the worst I have ever experienced.

Can't comment on regular style aeo blades.
