I balance my blades every single time I sharpen them. You can put any blade on a balancer that has never been balanced and it will always be WAY out of balance.
It's funny but we balance our tires on our trucks and autos and they only go something like 5,000 rpm doing 75 mph while a Exmark will spin it's blades at 18,500+ and some people will never balance the blades. Why is that? If they can feel it at 5,000 rpm in their trucks but not give a darn about their mowers at 18,500.
Balance your blades then go mow for a hour. Then check them to see if they are still balanced. The only time I balance my blades is if I have to remove alot of material due to hitting something or if the blade goes on a 21" mower.
