    weight difference before and after propeller tuning ?

    I have seen loads of posts on the net about propellers being sent of to be performance tuned etc.
    Most people talk of the propeller blades being thinned, extra cup being added polished and sharpened etc with great results..

    Has anyone weighed the props before and after the work has been done to them ?
    I know some have also had the hubs on thru hub props shortened, but I am more interested in how much weight has been
    taken off props like the rakers, SRX , mazco's, renegade's merc choppers etc.
    Just interest to see how much is actually taken away, and if this has caused any major problems .

    also does anyone now just how much thinner the blades are compared to factory finish props.

    I cant believe none of you have weighed your props before sending off to be thinned labbed ,blueprinted etc.

    For the money its cost to be modified I would know down to the last gram what has been taken off, even if just for future reference.

    some of you must know ?
