    If you're crashing or scuffing blades, stick with wood.

    If not then any 550 mm carbon blades like the newer Mavrikk, Edge, etc will be fine.

    You can re-finish the blades with spray polyurethane. Just take the pastic off, sand the blades lightly, and apply the plyurethane. It actually brings out the wood grain of the blades and it looks great. I flew wood blades like that for a few years.
