I understand "counterweighted" in this post to mean counterweighted prop blades for aerobatic operation.

Counterweighted (or dampened) crankshafts are a different thing altogether, yet also very important to propellors.

If I'm wrong, please let me know

edit: replaced the picture in the other post and added spinner pic here



Now I’m confused. How can I tell which hub I have? It’s not listed on my invoice.
Also, do I have the “old style” spinner? Will one of the pointier new style spinners work with my hub?

Yes, it can be confusing: a counterweighted propeller has centrifugal weights to prevent overspeed during inverted aerobatics (lapse in oil pressure)

A counterweighted crankshaft reduces torque loads on the engine crankshaft at each cylinder's ignition stroke.

Feel free to call in or email us pictures to get some clarification on what you currently have. The new spinners are only for the new 330 hub. If you placed your order after Jan 1, 2021 you probably have a 330 hub.
