I installed some 325mm Radix mains on my furion yesterday and noticed that they fit just a tad loose in the main grips. My question to all you Radix users is . . . has anyone used the 0.15mm spacers that come with the blades (they fit btw) or do you just run the blades straight up and tighten the grips down for a tight fit?

I've used both the 325's and the 430's without the spacers. I don't have to over-tighten to get an appropriate fit.

Let's all observe a moment of silence for those blade companies that don't supply washers in their packages for those that DO choose to use them.

I don't use the spacers, but then again I've got plastic grips on my TRex, so they just compress down onto the root with no problem.

On my Pantera, though, I do use the spacers. Otherwise the grips would have to be squashed down so hard that I'm sure it would cause big, big problems.

Nice blades, though- I like them a lot and use them on both my birds.

On the 450, 500 and 600 I do not use them since they simply would not fit. I would not be able to get the blades in with spacers. On the 700 they do fit -> actually without themI would not be able to get the blades tight enough.
