I am going to wait to out them until I try to call them tomorrow, they are in a different timezone so I can't call them this evening. Thanks for the input, I will let everyone know what happens.

They are closed until the 5th, but Tantrum is on the right track, it is Houston Propeller, I had seen a couple of other threads where people had had a problem with them but there were a bunch of people that posted about great service also, I'm not sure where the great service came from as I'm not getting any
I won the gift certificate at the Offshoreonly party in Key West, these were my spare props but I have had to have a little nick taken care of locally on my other set since I don't have my spares

If it takes that long to repair the props, I would question how well the props are done

They told me that they would be shipping them out today, I forgot to ask about a tracking number so I emailed them tonight asking for it. Guess tomorrow will tell if they really sent them. I'm not going to hold my breath as I've heard the same story only different other times, this time Darrin is sick and his wife would have him in the hospital but because he wants to get my props out he is in working today

They emailed me a tracking number and said the props went out yesterday, I checked the tracking number and it's only 12.3 pounds and it didn't leave until 5:30 PM today, they did offer me 50% off on my next repair since it took so long, I hope my next repair isn't the other prop as a pair of props is more than 12 pounds, she did say it would be worth the wait since the props look great. I could have had them looking great in less than a week at many prop shops, didn't need to wait over 3 months. Fed-EX says that the package will be here next Wednesday, we'll see what they(or it ) looks like then.

At 12 pounds sounds like they may have taken alittle too much off those props Hope it all works out keep us up to date.

Yeah, they were 15X30's when I sent them in, hope they aren't 4X30's now
