    The very least I would check it, and then decide.

    I would! Need to be careful with the painted carbon props - as they are messy with the paint and get buildup within the center hub that would throw your balance off.

    No paint on this one other than logo.

    It is becoming harder and harder to get stuff. In the last year my LHS does not have much in stock and he cannot get it. I have ended up buying a lot of stuff from chine I hate to say that but it is the only way to get it. The only drawback is it takes up to two months to get it.
