Default Difference in Radix blades

I have flown Radix blades for a while but due to the lack of available cosmetic flawed blades, I switched to G5 wide's and have had a great time. I have been researching blades lately and I was not aware that Radix has SB (stick bangers) and regular blades. What is the difference? Price is the same.

The SB blades are lighter.

So I assume the SB's are better for 3d and the regular blades are for general flying?

I don't fly hardcore 3d but I do put the smack down and shoot huge autos. What would you recommend?

the regular blades have white graphics, the SBs have sparkly silver graphics, and a white tip

regular have more weight than the SBs, which means they have more inertia in flight, slower response, but greater stability, and better autos

the SBs are for all out 3D

So I would assume the cos flawed blades were the regulars since they were white?

Depends on what type of 3D your doing, I use non SB blades and still get a great balance of speed and tracking.
I use 690s

i would say SBs for small, close in 3D and regular for big, fast 3D

I've directly compared the two and when I put SBs on my 600 it was an untamed animal. They are a bit lighter as others have said but the weight is more toward the grips so they don't have the centrifugal forces for good autos. But for stickbanging...the name says it all. If you don't want a ballistic bird avoid them as they WILL speed up your bird considerably.
