I am quite happy with my Catto 3 blade NLE and 20 lb plate from Saber out front to keep CG very happy. Of course, my engine is has a solid crank, so I didn't really have a choice. If I were in need of getting in/out of short strips, as you mentioned, the CS would be the way to go. I'm sure it can be done with a FP prop but you'd need to be on your game every time, IMO.
