I just recently upgraded my components and wheels and have noticed a huge difference in the way the bike handles. Some have suggested that it is a result of the bladed spoke wheels in wind. Anyone else have similar experiences when upgrading wheels?

You got new hubs, new rims, a different wheel builder, probably new tires and tubes, and the Hawthorne affect after making a relatively high dollar upgrade. I don't see how the average guy could pinpoint how much improvement is due to the bladed spokes.

If you like the wheels - Enjoy.

you can feel the difference between round and bladed spokes. No way.
