Default For Sale: Sensenich prop

I have a 72 FM 8 S9-1-85, Hub serial No. 35950 Sensenich prop for sale. It includes the spinner(painted blue), spinner back plates, prop bolts ( 1/2"). I had it on my -7 with O-360 A2A and replaced it with a Catto 3 blade about 3 years ago with 667 hours on it, and since I'm not going to use it again I'm putting it up for sale.
Asking $1,750 plus shipping.

If you need one I have one for this exact prop sitting in my garage unused. Pay for the shipping to destination of your choice and it's yours.

Default Performance

Fred, can you mention the performance change when you went from the heavy Sensenich to Catto?

Default Performance

Jim,
The reason I changed to a 3- blade Catto was to better control my airspeed during formation flights- to slow down when the lead powered back. It helped a bit but not as much as I was hopping and I'm now converting to C/S.
The Catto prop is very smooth and gave me much better clime rate, but also lowered my top speed by about 5 knots. I have nothing negative to say about the Catto prop and would keep it on if not for the formation flying.

Fred, are you planning to sell your Catto?

Hi Jim,

I will sell my Catto as soon as I have my new engine and a c/s Hartzell delivered, expected in March.
