Default Any one who has actually installed Hartzell 74" composite on RV-7A?

I'm ready to take a big $15K gulp and launch my order for a 74" composite Hartzell and associated spinner for my 7A to replace the Sensenich aluminum FP now installed. Superior XP-IO-360-B1A2. Would love first to hear of any experience out there with this specific swap- anybody? Thanks!

Default Haven't flown yet

We have this prop on our RV-7A but haven't flown, so can't provide any useable data.

It was a great prop on our DA-40 and I expect great performance and durability on the RV-A.

Hope to have the airplane moved from Eugene back to Locust Grove by the end of the year and flying by early February.

Default 74" Hartzell composite

Follow on from Hartstoc's question
I am also interested in understanding the advantages of a 74" Hartzell Composite prop at $13000 against a constant speed at half the price. What makes this prop so special and why is it offered by Vans. I'm keen to hear from someone with experience as I am also about to install a 74" Composite on a 7A
