Definitely summed up my thoughts. There should be Koho and Easton ABS blades for $15. I've recommended the CCM Vector blades to folks in my league, either the older V20 model or the current V2.0 go for about $20-25. I personally like the CCM ones since they'll have at least 3 choices in curves whereas the Koho/Easton ones only offer one. I recently loaded up on CCM V110 blades (used to go for $50+) for $18 to use on asphalt.
These blades will throw off the balance with a composite shaft, but realistically while you're playing you probably won't notice.
