I haven't done specific measurements on a standard day but I am very happy with the performance of my Catto. Along with that is a fraction of the price up front, simplicity of operation and no maintenance headaches you'll read about here (on some, not all) CS props.

If a good quality CS prop is in your budget, you will have better climb performance but not likely much gain in top speed.

I found a great deal on a O360-A4M so a CS prop was never a consideration thanks to a robust solid crank shaft.
