Brett is good, but definitely not a secret. You don't want to send your props in this time of the year - very long wait. With said, just got my props back and hope to give them a try.

When's the best time to send them in? I would assume...fall after boating? I got a 23 Mirage Plus I wanna get labbed.

I called a week ago and the wait was 4 weeks. I guess it's getting better.

The wait when I sent my props in was 6 weeks. Glad to see the wait time has come down to acceptable levels.

Bret has been fantastic for me too. I have had him work 2 sets of props, and my Dad had him refinish his 6 blade Herrings. Excellent job on both!
