Alternate hinge options for Accuride 1-2-3 Flidder door slides?


I am installing a set up Accuride 123 Flipper Door Slides. The recommended hinges run about $20 a set, compared to the average price of a Blum Euro hinge ($6-$10). Has anyone used these slides and found an cheaper alternative to the recommended hinge? The slides and hinges can be viewed on Woodcrafts website: http://www.woodcraft.com/family.aspx?DeptID "20&FamilyID754
I tried installing a set of inset hinges from the BORG and found they did not fit. The issue I ran into was when the door was extended to the retractable position, the "arm" connecting the door to the frame did not have enough clearance for the enge of the door. I can see how a custom hinge would have the needed clearance, but I wanted to confirm this was the only option before spending $40 on 4 hinges.
My doors are Inset.

The Accuride 123 system allows for almost any euro hinge and usually has specs that come with them. I personnally prefer Salice hinge's because of the cam adjustments The choice of which hinge to use is predicated mainly on the door thickness and whether you want self closing or free swining for the use of touch catches. You should have no problem with the blum hinges, If you need any more direction e-mail me direct Good Luck, George
