Default Blade Selection

Hello. I've got a 700LE that still has a flybar on it. I'm currently running 690D blades but would like to maybe try something different, like a 710. For those with experience with the different blade, suggestions would be appriciated. I've been looking at the Radix, Scot Grey, and Edge. Thanks in advance!

Ok, yea....the reason I was wanting to try something different is I don't fly hard enough, yet atleast, the really use the 690's. Do you think the v1 or v2 would be better for flybarred....

V1 I know, they are great, V2s, I haven't tried yet, but then again everything I've flown from Curtis is top drawer, perfectly balanced strait out of the box. You can't go wrong.

Thank ya'll. I ended up ordering some Scott Grey 710's. I almost bought some 6 months ago and I found some on sale so I still wanted to try them out. If I don't like them I will def be trying to Radix 710's.

I personally like the 690mm over the 710mm blades I have flown both. I think it depends on your flying style and head speed? I like to fly 3-D so for me the 690's load the head less and seem to be not so touchy. Where as the 710's I have flown feel very responsive in turns and stuff + they load the head allot more but I think if you run 710's with a lower HS then they would probably be OK for mild 3-D and big air flying. I think it's all just a matter of opinion.

Yea, I like the 690's fine but I just wanted to try something different. I can't do much 3D yet (i want to though) so I wanted to see how a different blade felt

I don't personally like how the 700+ blades feel on a 700N for 3D but the 693 Edge SE blades are pretty awesome. They are a quicker flybarless blade and pretty quiet.
