    I'm currently using a 3 blade set of Windgrabbers on the WindTura 500.
    Since we have relatively low wind speeds here I'd like to upgrade to a 5 blade set to make the most of these lower wind speeds.
    Is purchasing a large 5 blade hub w/ bolts and two more Windgrabber blades my best bet or would I be better off just getting the 5 blade hub and another 3 blade set w/ o hub? It appears the cost would be close and I'd end up with a spare blade (although I'm not sure I'd ever need it since these are some very heavy duty, tough blades).
    Just looking for suggestions on what you would recommend.

    New Windgrabber blades, bolts and 5 blade hub arrived today.
    Love that heavy duty, precision cut, stainless steel hub!
    Should have the new blade set up and flying within the next few days.
