I've used them in the past, my big trouble was the heaver load on the clutch. Starting double the weight was one thing but stopping that weight was very hard on the clutch brake.
I don't think the blade was weakened by the notches. Everything is supported when its tightened down. I have already run this setup for over 20 hours and have inspected evrything with a fine tooth comb. As far as I can tell there are no differences than running a single blade. I thought I clearly showed in the picture above that this setup is barely heavier than a single G6 blade.
