new main blades for Blade CP needed

I've been looking on ebay for new cheap blades for my Blade CP, and this seems to be the closest I can find.

Will these work and are they any good?

I think 275mm is a bit big for a Blade CP aren't they?

If you are still going through a lot of blades, maybe give the plastic blades a try. I put them on my SR when I was going through a lot of blade scrapes peeling the covering off the wood blades.

Re: new main blades for Blade CP needed

275mm is a bit long, you might be able to get away with 'em though. I think the usual blades you'd put on are 240mm in length.

I don't know that I'd recommend the plastic blades personally. I found you just end up getting boom strikes instead of banging up the blades. Then you cut your boom in half, you end up soldering wires, swearing while you try to get the boom out of the frame, etc. etc. Not worth the effort imo. Stick with the woodies and just keep replacing 'em.

I made a few sets out of paint sticks from home depot, free with a bit of sanding. They worked well.
