    Solas 14/19R Is it suppose to be like this?

    I took the pump out tonight and i noticed something that i do not think is suppose to be like this. This prop has never been tweeked. i put it in straight out of the box. I don't know how much you will be able to tell from the picture. All of the edges look like they have a slight arch on the ends. I rode 2 weeks ago and i did not notice anything wrong. Can someone help.

    I was wanting to bend about 2mm into it to try to make it spin a litle faster. But know i am thinking buy a new one before i do that...

    That cupping is normal on props. It helps to prevent cavitation.
