They have a mixed rep on here. I haven't heard anything bad about their work though. I've spoken to them and found them very helpful and pleasant. Make sure you price a "new to you" refurbed prop from them as well (if they have your size) before you send yours in - the cost is very similar for certain props.

I have used them three times and found them both very good pricewise and very quick turnaround.

Personally I would rather use Castle Marine in North Wales, as in the past I found SDs work not bril. However this was some years ago.
