    Re-pitching reliability....?

    I am currently waiting on a 14/19 prop I bought that is too much for my mods. I was told to repitch it and that was my plan. I talked to my mechanic and told him about this and he told me to not re-pitch because the re-pitch was not totally realiable. He said that in his years of experience and hundreds of racing machines he has built that he stopped re-pitching props because of this. Something about the prop loosing the re-pitch and needing more re-pitching.

    Anyone care to explain or share opinions....?

    Is this true...? Am I better off buying a 14/17R...?

    I thought so...

    So there would not be a problem repitching this 14/19 to a 14/17?

    You should be fine dude.

    its just constant pitching back and forth that makes them weak and not want to hold a bend.

    It's too bad I dont have any of you guru's close by to help me out. He is the only one around in my area. I guess he was talking about the repitching a few times type of thing cuz I mentioned him I might do a few re-pitchings to get to where I wanted. I can tell he knows what he's talking about when he gets into it. He's currently working on a s/c Limited right now and doing his version of a stage 1 which is more that any stage 2 out there right now.
