I was trying to bring up my power band so mu cruise rpm would be 3200-3400 rpm. It worked, but I lost top end speed since the engine was turning close to 4000 rpm on a low pass at 180 MPH and I could no longer get those 200 MPH low passes. I've since gone back to a 54" diam and 48" pitch prop - best of both worlds.

Why did you have to shorten your prop. Thanks Darrell

I bought my original prop from Jeff at Props Inc. back in 1999. Since
then he refinished it twice for me and has done excellent work. The first
time was just a refinish and the second time earlier this year was a
repitch and shortening. The original prop length was 56" by 46" pitch. I
ended up with 54" by 45" pitch. This prop ended up cracking at the hub a
couple of months later, but this was not Jeff's fault.
Anyways the work he does is of very high quality and Jeff is a super nice
guy, very easy to deal with and very reasonably priced. Highly

Anyone have any first hand experience with the Props Inc. propeller
manufacturer that you would mind sharing?
I would like to try a fixed pitch wood prop on my Soob and Props, Inc.
to have the most reasonable price but would like to verify the quality of
If anyone happens to have a spare prop in the 56" x 44" range and wouldn't
mind letting me try it (my expense), please let me know.
