Heres some specs : Stock paddles 16g each
KBDD 30/50 paddles 12g each

I've been stuck indoors for sometime now, and don't have a job. LOL!

YIKES! 80mm shorter, that's like 3 inches.....or there abouts.

As you know, with a shorter flybar, you'll have alot more cyclic response.

If that is a concern to you, you have a few options. See if there is a longer flybar rod available. Add flybar weights. Last but not least, make your own flybar.

You can use Piano Wire from the LHS, just measure the O.D. and either have it threaded or thread it yourself. Dies are available, but for a one time shot, a little pricey. Just food for thought.
