Hey gang-
Got a new brass prop (Acme) the other day and the back of one of the blades looks like it was ground off a little with a wire brush or something. Is that a defect (or damage) or is it something done to correct a balance issue? Haven't put it in the water yet to know if it creates a vibration. Any ideas?
Thanks
Chad

Its normal. Mine had it too. prop worked fine. If you do a search there are others that had it too.

That's how it's balanced from the factory

Thanks, that i what I was thinking but I wasn't sure if somebody tried to polish it, realized they messed it up and returned it.
