Default New Align CF Blades?

Are these blades new? I saw them for the first time in my LHS today. They are the Align CF Blades (Item #HS1292T).

How are they?

Been using them for a while now. Very nice blades, I run a governed 3100 head speed with these.

That's the 325D blades, HS1292. They're very similar to the other 325 CFs (HS1231). Maybe a little lighter (my HS1231 weights vary by almost 2g, but are always matched), 325D maybe a little stiffer torsionally.

I can't tell the difference in flight, but I haven't swapped them on the fly for an A-B test.

Yep, the box on em says, HS1292T 325D Carbon Fiber Blades. Curiosity peaked, so I weighed them all. Here are the results:

HS1292T 325D CF= 18 grams
HS1231 325 CF= 20 grams
HS1158-01 325 Pro Woodies= 20 grams

See the pics.

Yeah, but I just put a pair of 1231's on that came in under 19g, maybe closer to 18g.

Go figure, eh?

Yeah, I was surprised by the weight variation in a few of my 3K CF blades. I had 3 singles left over from crashes and I got like 18.7, 19.4, and 20.5g. It took a good bit of tape to balance a couple out...I've got some TP blades that I will try one day soon: 10mm longer, stiffer, and 21g
