I have an 03 X2 and took my prop in for repair at the "prop shop" They wanted 200 bucks to fix my prop. Grantd all 4 blades were damaged but that seemed high... Any one else get a recent price?:confused:

Kummer,

OJ props has a repair program. Go to ojprops.com and contact their service dept. Prop repair usually runs $80 - $100 plus shipping. I am not sure if they repair non OJ props but if your prop is an OJ sending it back to them is the way to go as they will also dynamically balance it and bring it back to factory specs.

If it's an OJ, send it to OJ. Great work and the price is right.

IMHO, you get what you pay for. It would be cheaper if you found some guy with a ball-pien hammer. A trained prop repair guy who has invested in all of the appropriate tools and pitch blocks OTOH is going to be more expensive.

My local prop guy here is a genius with ski-boat props, but if he wasn't here, I'd send it back to the factory. My experience over many years has been that bargain prop repairs don't work out very well.

Right On. Sounds like the 200 bucks was a lot... I think you do get what you pay for. I am sure they do good work too but if it is 200 bucks localy (Wilmington, NC) I feel better spending my money with OJ seeing they made the thing then hope it is going to cost less.

Thakns for all your input.

From personal experience 95.00 for two blades

We sub our rebuilds out to a local shop, and it is in the area of 120 depending on how bad of a hit.

200 sounds like a lot! A good shop here in Texas does it for around 90.

I bent all four blades, just the tips, and it cost me $90 through my dealer.

I just bought a 13x13x1" NiBrAl 3-blade re-built prop for less than $200. Mine was damaged and unrepairable.
