    HI Rusty -- this outfit in Chicago I've dealt with before for prop repair and they sell new and will sell used props on consignment. I believe they've got a good reputation. http://airmarineinc.com/

    Curious to your direction to change props. I was going to go a similar path.
    Currently using 23/25 H cupped and felt that I was under propped. I came across acmes 26/25 ... after reading some posts and further investigation I now feel like those would be overpropped ... do you have any insight on this?

    Are you looking for a spare set to repitch? If so I know a guy that has a set from his 420db he wants to sell.

    Sorry to hear that, My experience was a good one. Maybe 8 years ago there was a different person taking care of you, I believe his name was Biil, he took me in the back where they work on the props and showed me on the scanner how my props were off and how he was going to fix and balance...all good in the neighborhood!

    Thanks, after doing some research and performance tests on my set up, I’ve decided to be satisfied with my props as they are. I may be a tad underpropped but I’m happy knowing I’m not over working my engines.
