Propeller re pitching

Good afternoon folks decided I am going to get my 14x21 aluminium suzuki propeller re pitched to a 14x20 or 19 if thats possible to help with some improved out of hole performance. I understand that aluminium propellers can be changed by 2 pitches?

Can anybody recommend a company who they have used that are good and helpful. I guess they balance the propeller afterwards?

Any help would be most appreciated

Thanks for a great forum

RIBase
Steel developments

I'm not sure of the cost of a smaller pitch prop, but I'd be tempted to keep the one I have & buy another smaller pitch rather than bugger about with the original. Just my tuppeneth

I used Propeller Solutions, based just outside Poole.
Had two Stainless steel 4 bladed props retuned, asked for a particular speed at a specific RPM and they got it spot on!
Very impressed with the service
