Default Time for some new blades

I had a blade strike which cracked on of the stock main rotor blades. Before I order another set of stock blades I am curious to know what blades you guys are using these days...

Edge... Perfect fit... Flybar version on Flybarless Beam
I had Mavrik, but the root was thinner so needed shims (not supplied with the blades)

Edge supplies the shims but you don't need them.

325mm.

I need to get a spare set so I might give these a try, I don't do hard 3D and they are a little less costly;
Mavrikk 325mm ST Sport Flybarless

Stock blades where 335mm and weren't that good, I replaced with some Hobbyking 335mm blades for awhile $4.I don't think the stock ones are actually fbl blades even though they come with the fbl kit.Id like to try some Maverick G5, anyone try those?

I had the G5s... they need shims, which I didn't have at the time, so I squeezed the grips and ended up with the tracking being a little wonky.

How about the Align 325's? Does anyone use them? I use Align 205's on my Gaui 200 and they are great!

Aligns work, running with beastx, Neu motor 12 pinion 3s, it goes well but that is in the hands of a beginner, rolls & flips .

I went with these @ only 7.99 shipped, well balanced out of the bag.

I bought those ones in 335mm from Hobbyking for about the same price but the 335's needed tape to balance and I also noticed they don't feel the same when you give them a test bend( between pairs).Not my favorite but maybe the 325's are better!

I just got mine in yesterday. I went for the 335mm length. I hope they will work!
