Has anyone used aftermarket blades? Happy? Sad? Indifferent?

Indifferent! Got some, would use 'em if I had no others ;-)

The ones I’ve got seem to be a little tougher...

The prop holder I use leaves little marks on the DJI ones

I need to buy some propellers and it seems I can more for less. Just wondering if it’s worth it?

If you had zero and had to buy some would you get aftermarket?

A bit difficult!
I got them as spares when I still had (I still have) original spares.
So for 'just in case' and b/c they where cheaper as the originals, of course.
I flew a set, they did the job, but the mechanic of them, to un-/fold, feels / felt different from prop to prop
And some did really need more force, as the ori. props need(ed).
If I remember that right, I did unfold 'em before starting the motors.
Might be just a trust issue.

And as I wrote before, I would fly 'em if I had no other props.
Probably just not auto unfold during start.

Edit:
And in case I had zero, the quickest to get would be the copy, I would buy them, to go fly.
Read the reviews of buyers from the brand, you are bidding for!

Thanks! I took your advice and bought a set of each to see the difference. I’m pretty timid and careful with it, as my wife would not be happy if I had to replace the spark!

Does anyone know what the difference is between 4730S vs 4730F propellers for spark?

I got two different sets from gearbest, and they looked and felt exactly like the originals, but once installed on the Spark, the motors seemed to spin unevenly. I tested them all one by one, and I feared that they weren't as perfectly balanced as the originals. There's a good chance that it was just paranoia, but I never used them, and bought the originals instead. No big loss, the aftermarkets were only a couple of dollars per set of 4 (!).
