What are your thoughts on blade bending with and without the drops brazed on, pros and cons? Do the drops help align the blade in the bender, make it easier or harder? I know blades bent with the drops can have a straight section from the tips for a few inches (which is not objectionable to me), anything else different? And how many of you use sand fill to prevent rippling? Posted same question on mtbr, looking for more input here.
