Default Balanced Prop Question

Balanced Prop Question
This Question is for all you prop guys.
I have a prop that will 10 out of 10 spins, stop with the A blade up. The A blade and B blade will be level every time but stops in the same level position.
Even with both blades level this does not seem balanced to me.
What do I do to balance this? Or is it?
Would this mean the hub of the prop (the very center) is not balanced?

Thanks for the help
Shawn

Sorry to say, but it's not balanced yet. It could be the hub or it could be that blade B is still a bit heavy. When I get one like this, and it's not that uncommon, I usually take some of the bottom side of the hub and also the part of the blade that's pointing down.

So I would want to take some of the hub that points down every time and a little more off the B blade? Being that’s the blade that ends up on the lower side. Even though its level, just not balanced right? What part of the B blade should I file on still the trailing edge?

thanks

Both blades are probably still heavy. Prop needs to stop in a different spot each time.
