Are you interested in a ground adjustable propeller? You did not mention Whirlwind? Whirlwind and Sensenich both offer ground adjustable propellers that can be fine tuned to your desires and changes. If you are interested I will be selling my 200 SNEW whirlwind GA in a couple months for a good deal. It is a great propeller, nothing wrong with it but in the interest of experimenting I have ordered a 3 blade Catto. I have already ran a two blade Catto and two blade GA whirlwind and now want to try a 3 blade Catto. Assuming it works initially I will probably unload the 2 blade whirlwind GA. It is gray with white tips, with nickel leading edges and a couple pinhole scratches in the paint. Pulled her up to 2700 RPM briefly on Sunday and was truing out at 163 KTAS after a few seconds in an RV-9A!
