The Graupners are easier to balance, and have zero tracking issues, due to their knife-like rigidity. The GWS 3-bladed 9x5x3s, once balanced, are actually a bit smother than the Graupners, but only if you start out with ones that aren't warped. I've had about 20% of the ones I bought that have at least one blade the bends up slightly. On the other hand, you can buy five of the GWS 9x5x3s for the cost of one Graupner 10x5.
