Curious to know if anyone has polished up a stock impeller and whether or not its worth doing....

a satin finnish is supposed to be best. makes the prop more "slippery"

Thanks for the response Jerry.
So how come high performance props are polished. Are the materials different from a stock prop. This was the main reason why I was thinking of polishing up my prop..

When I was into high performance boats the "polished vs. satin" debate was big... probably still is I ran both and never noticed a difference.
My friend pays between $7,500- $8,500 per set... I suppose he should expect a little "bling factor" at that price
Here is a site that discusses the issue (last couple of threads):

Is satin finish the same as a sand blast or beat blast finish?

there may be a nickles worth of difference but that would be it. I agree with the bling factor explanation. I have seen several shiny props roughed up similar to what Impros does in their re-finish and some stockers re-finished like that too but no way would I take it apart just slick it up.
