Default Stainless or Bronze

Which props do you prefer and why.
I can't tell any difference in performance between bronze and stainless and the bronze is certainly easier to balance and polish.

SS props are really strong.. as one buddy of mine put it "turtle proof"... they are such a pain to balance and sharpen and polish.. but some people woulndt do without em.. hell i have a few in my box.. the BC (Berrillium Copper) props are much easier to work with, but more prone to dings and nicks in the leading edge. Personally i like the bc props becuase of the ease of modifying them.

Berrillium is highly toxic. Make sure you wear respiratory mask and wash you hads throughly after working on props. Specially if you use a belt sander to work on the props.
