Default Sensenich Ground Adjustable Prop in the Rain

Any PIREP on the Sensenich GAP in the rain? Can I just pull the power back in moderate rain and in fly on or should I find a landing strip and wait it out?

If pulling back on the power, what RPM would you recommend.

Thank you,

I have the 2G0M7 model (for an O-320) and it has stainless steel leading edge protection.

For someone living in the southwest, I've flown in a fair amount of rain with mine over the last four years and have not found any issues. That probably amounts to a grand total of two or three hours(??) in relatively light rain showers.

I fly the **** out of mine in very heavy rain at full rpm, zero issues. If you have the stainless leading edge it does not have a rain rpm limit. That's why I switched from my sensenich non stainless leading edge.
