Try 1900 rpm, if that's rough, try 2300 rpm - staying out of the Hartzell no-no range.
Thanks for the link. Any insight regarding how to set the manifold pressure for either the 92 or 121 knot suggestions? Honestly things were simpler with our flying club's fixed pitch prop planes that had fuel flow meters. I'm not convinced that the CS prop does much except give us a faster climb - which we really don't need. Wish we could easily add a fuel flow meter.
