Balancing small 5" 3 blade props, Gemfan...

How do you guys balance the 3 bladed props? I got a bunch of Gemfans and can't get them to balance on my magnetic balancer, other than spinning them on a motor one at a time. That's more time than I'd like to spend balancing....I feel like these props are not what I need. Probably better off with 2 blade GWS 5"

I think several users here, myself included, have tried to use these on small multis. Just use the 5" two-bladed Gemfan props, they're very durable, inexpensive and much easier to balance.
