Hold on! That is NOT the way I was taught! The low pressure side or rear of prop is not the side I balance small props,that being said the next time I am at the shop I will confirm this ,but in ALL my years of racing
I never touched the rear,always on the front to balance. Now I have never touched a prop 4 a singing issue it has always been because they were bent or out of balance. And it is quite possible that you might need to work
on low pressure side or suction side or rear whatever you want to call it to cure a singing issue. But still the easiest way is to just change it. You should have a spare prop anyway. But now you got me curious and I will definitely contact propeller
people to confirm this because in all my years I have never touched the rear of the prop all the work
has always been done on the face that is the part that is pointing towards the front of the boat
. You may very well be correct that you have to take Material off on the low pressure side to cure noise
but I have never seen anybody remove anything off the rear before but I don't do propellers professionally so I would definitely ask somebody that did. You never know we both might windup learning
something that's pretty cool.
