I'm needing opinions. I know the most common dislike with the 10s are the flexing issue, but they will touch where the 8s won't. I need to know which would you buy? Also if you were buying a new boat, which pole would you want? They will be on the dual braced bracket.

Mine had the 10' blades, the only problem I have is that I have to put them down some to get the boat in the shop

Sounds like you need to build a bigger shop! LOL

I have 10' blades on mine and love them. I had 8' series II on the last boat and they were great as well.

I went with the 8's mainly because they fit in my garage without having to lower them. Personally, the 10's look a little awkward to me being so tall. But, it's more about function and there have been plenty of time where I could have used the extra couple of feet. Good luck in your decision.

I've got the 10s with dual braced brackets and I love them. I see zero flexing and very little vibrating around. I wouldn't go back to 8s personally
