Would you or anyone else recommend using these kind of blades in lower water runs? I like the idea of more lightweight blades, but want something that can take the Arkansas river.

They resist shark bites in a way that the others will not. The amount of force that broke the Sawyer blades would have definitely also broken the other blades. But they are a tad bit heavy.
