Help identify what kind of blades are these??

I have these but not sure what kind they are and what they good for. Can the pros identify these and what they good for? Would they work for a BCP or a dragonfly?

They look similar to some banged up blades I got with a second hand Zoom I got off eBay.

How long are they? Photo next to a ruler?

Well...maybe they are cheap because I complained to the seller about the 22d tail boom not a carbon and he sent me a carbon tail along with these blades. They look either fiberglass or carbon but not sure. Tip to tip I would say they are about 11 1/4 inches.

no doubts...

those are not real carbon fiber blades... the pattern looks completely fake...

trust me on this one kids.... find a REAL piece of carbon fiber and snap a shot of the 2 next to each... the weave pattern there looks alot like Align's original 3k faux carbon fiber plastic stuff... to 'print' looking to be real CF.

so what are they really, who even knows?

If you really don't want them, break them in half and see, I am thinking the look that way because of the resign used when he mde them, also the weave could be off, because he hand layed them and could've streched it a bit. But who really knows??? I guess the guy.
