Re-pitching a prop

I've got a 14x20 that I would like to have re-pitched if it is even possible?

I've got to send it to OJ to be reworked anyway, so why not have the pitch changed while they are at it. I would like to have the pitch lowered for more, out of the hole, response.

Within a couple of degrees maybe

Just swap it out for a 14 x 18

I'm not sure how much they can go, but I know it can be done. A friend of mine had his changed a little

Thanks, I may try the exchange that Jim suggested since I would like to go more than a couple of degrees.

An exchange to a 14 x 18 would be the best bet to get the low end you are looking for.
