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

Hi Jon,
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

Hi all,

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
their product.

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.
