    I will start hopefully more knowledgeable will add.
    The blades are normally thinned a little.
    The pitch is fine tuned.
    The shape of the blades are fine tuned.
    The prop is as close to perfect balanced as possible.

    Increase in performance should be achieved but the longevity of the prop.might go down.

    I guess my theory was that all the blades are as matched (identical) as possable, thanks for input

    Guys your right, yes all blades are the same in pitch and rake, then balanced.

    Purpose of this is to free up horse power that the prop was robbing from the set-up and in re-turn gain speed.
