    I am curios how owners of P2 or P1 1.1.1 are balancing the self tightening props. Does the center pop out or does it require something special. I have a traditional style prop balancer but it requires the shaft to go through the middle.

    I have searched the web. I figured asking here would yield proven results from owners. Most of what I see on the web doesn't look to reliable. Especially the common one of sticking a piece of tubing over the end of the rod to stick the prop onto. Thanks anyways.

    So the proper solution seems to be a threaded rod. Looks like I will need a new balancer as mine will not accept a rod like that.
