is there any information on the pros and cons for each type of epo?

there must be other differences, otherwise why make three? any feedback?

Basically, the white blades make it easy to see kelp or weeds on the blade and they are less expensive.

The carbon / carbon-kevlar ones are lighter and stiffer (and look cooler). However, they must be protected from the sun (they will bubble from the heat).

Bubbles... are an effect of bad core material too. We have addressed that by changing the core.

I have a set of the carbon EPO s. I noticed a few bumps on the surface. You can see them if you looks at the blade at a angle and can feel them when rubbing your hand across the blade. Is that what you mean by bubbles? I aways keep them covered.

Just looked at them again definately just minor surface imperfections. They are so shiny and black everything shows up.

Sorry to bring up an old post, but is the bubbling that happens in the core protected by warrantee?

Yes,

Warranty on parts is 1 year and would cover delamination / bubbles.
