I think he was talking about how it would help throttle up not that the judgement was against them I think you must have read it wrong. Throttle Up GOOD - Houston Propeller BAD hope that clears it up for you.

Soon, the owner of throttle up will sit back and think to himself "maybe I should have paid that guy". I know you have certainly changed my mind about where to send my props.
Thanks for the insight.
HOUSTON PROPELLER

NOT Throttle Up.

Nevermind, I see what you mean now.

Throttle Up should be paying Houston for sending business their way.

Dont confuse with Throttle-up.
Matt and Julie run a good business and work hard to please their customers. Ive had good experiences with Throttle-up. Ive been using Brett @ BBlades and he has pulled through for me several times when I "needed props by the weekend".
I would recommend them both.

Houston has had several posts of disatisfied customer, I glad Shewbart did the right thing by letting us know and showing the facts. I hope to see some sort of restitution.

I actually had to have Throttle - Up "FIX" a "propeller lab special" by this Gentlemen in the Judgement so I can't say my dealings were good with him.. First it took FOREVER and many calls to get my prop back, then when I did it looked as if a 10 year old had broke out his Grandfathers 1945 grinding wheel to the trailing edges, not to mention the p%$& poor finish on the prop. It was bad enough and long enough of a wait that I had no intention of giving him another crack at it! Just learned my lesson and lived with the loss coin.

I paid Throttle - Up to do it over and it came back (in 10 days during their busy season) the way you'd expect a lab job to come back. Matt and Julie will forever have my biz and are a VERY reputable biz!

I hope that Darin does the right thing and pay's the Judgement. Maybe he had a bad day (REALLY BAD!) when he was doing my prop, but it's past time to own up and PAY -UP to this fellow boater regardless of who's sick, who owns the biz or whatever!!!

For service that seems odd to charge up front, Fred @ Trick charged for my strainers immediately but they were in stock and thats how you do it with retail.
