Ahhh, prop balancers....the best is magnetic like the Top Flite Power Point. It uses a steel shaft supported between two magnets, and two sliding cones that center the prop on the shaft. Problem is the shaft is .125" ( 1/8th. inch ) and it is too big to balance the smaller props with smaller holes. We need a new balancer with a smaller shaft...say under 3mm.

It also seems like the prop savers on motors need some refining also as most are a poor design, or are out of size to fit the prop correctly, or not fit some props at all.
