Default Lab job identification

I have a labbed Hydromotive prop. This is the second Hydromotive that I've seen labbed like this one. The blades have been thinned and sharpened. And I mean that they are sharp! Almost to the point of being dangerous. If you picked the prop up by the edge and let it drag through your hand you would definetly be cut. The most distinctive identifier is that the cup has been sand blasted so it is matt. The prop is not polished, but has a satin finish. Anybody know who is doing this work? They may be out of Florida, but I'm not sure.

Cord,

They sound like some of Mike's (Hall Propellers) work. I have a pair of 26P Bravo I's that he did and they sound like what you have.

TU-you apparently are familiar with their work. What are your thoughts? From what I have seen, they look like a really trick lab job. I have never had the chance to try either of the props though.

Thanks BB!
