Reason: prop size
Grout.......what more info do you want? Its a 25P Tempest other than being balanced and blue printed, its still a 25 pitch Tempest prop, no extra cup or modifications.
A Tempest+ has a progressive pitch and cup from Mer, since it is a surfacing prop. When you had your prop worked, all the original specs + whatever the tuner may have put in to get dialed. Balancing, just like a tire, make it turn true to its center axis, therefore utilizing all its thrust in pushing the boat most efficiently. Think what happens if you cough up a weight while off roading and get back to road speed. I have the same pitch Tempest+, but worked with extra cup in the pitch and cup in the rake to limit slip. This worked very well for my set up
