CF blades are definitely worth the cost when you're ready for them but... don't use them until you think you need them (each of us needs to decide when that is).

While CF blades perform better, they will also transmit the shock of impact in a crash to the rest of the head causing more damage than wooden blades which break on impact. With wood blades you basically damage blades, feathering shaft, maybe main shaft but rarely the other head pieces unless you go in with full throttle or inverted.

Don't buy durable blades to save $10-$12 on wooden blade replacements and have to spend $50 on a new head.
