Default moderate priced all purpose blades?

I trashed my set of kdbb blades today when my aileron servo came unplugged. Just looking for some recommendations for some reasonably priced blades for all around flying. Im not a 3d pilot, maybe just a couple flips and minor stuff. 600 size blades.
thanks
Jeff

The KBDD green sport blades fit that description perfectly. They are not as responsive as the EE ones, but are priced a little lower and work great for sport flying! https://kbdd-international.myshopify...er-main-blades

I have read about blades being wired on the inside, Im assuming for safety. I did notice the set I destroyed today were not wired.
thanks

Cyclone Rail or Switch Rotortech VTX b-Surface, pretty much the options.

I recently took out a set of Orange Kbdd... 550mm... no safety wire.

You can always check for b surface blades. KBDD are just re-labeled Mavrikk blades. I am not a fan of them, but for basic sport flying, they will work.

Switch blades for sure. Great all around blades.

I just switched from SAB on my 550 to Switches WOW! What a big difference I gave the blades away right there at the field. Without changing any FBL settings oormESC faster pitch and seeme d like more and the cyclic is fast off center battery came down at 3.85/390 vs -3.75 volts and I flew much harder. Can't explain how much better they are. Try the switch without a dout.
