Default Switch blade differences

Hey,
Switch blades are offered in 3 styles, fai, xf and regular from what I can tell. What are the differences between them for them if they're the same length? Weight?

Weight, CG and prepreg layers.

Swich regular = EDGE FBL
Switch XF = EDGE SE
Switch F3C = EDGE F3C

F3C being the most stable blade.
XF being the most rigid and agile blade.
Regular being a good alround blade.

I used edge blades on my fusion 50 for a long time and loved them. I didn't realize switch were the same thing. Thanks for the clarification.

Have a set of 423mm Switch mains that must be regular cause there's no XF or anything on the box.

They're extremely stable but have the most sluggish flip rate of any blade I've ever used. Excruciatingly slow for me since I'm used to high hs 300-450class helis so my 500's flip rate was plenty slow enough already compared to what I'm used to.

Best sport flying blades ever, worst 3d blades ever unless you like super slo-mo 3d

I'm planning on using a 4135 quantum motor and a hobbywing 100hv v3 on a 700. I'm not a hard 3d pilot slow mo 3d would be perfect for me. I am curious of the differences so I might try different sets eventually.
