It's a good point, 255 would work on the blade 300X but stock is 245 and I imagine most manufacturers will cater for that.

Also no idea what the root size is.

There's no shortage of 255mm blades really, there's just a shortage of ones that are a direct fit for the root size... I'd still like HSC to come out with some grips that have a more standard 5mm root!

I have a handle on some 255mm cfs out of hongkong can prob ship them for 15$ a set plus shipping.

the roots do need to be sanded but the quality is excellent.

I have a pair exactly as shown in the pics I am going to give my honest review they are 3g lighter than the yellow black mystery ones that shipped with some kits. They feel lighter and not as stif, no bushing in the root which is kind of good due to the root needed sanded. This brings me to a question when I sanded the root it smelled and tasted like fiberglass. I of course wasn't trying to taste it but had some dust in the air, wore a mask for the second one. If these are really cf, which the ones I bought from a well known us distributer were labeled as, why is the root fbglass?

When I sanded mine they were definately cf black powder. There is still a resin used and perhaps that smells the same as the resin used on fiberglass ?

The blades work excellent for my 3d flogging. I can probably get 100 sets in and reduce the cost of shipping that way if I can do a preorder.

No lol. I will get 100 sets if there is enough interest.

I think it would work out to 15$ per set plus shipping. Not too shabby
