Default ww rv200 vs rv74

Anybody have any experiance with these two props and why they limit the rv74 to 200hp and above? My 190 hp io360 wont swing that prop?

The 74 is heavier, longer, and optimized for the extra power. It was built for racers who were stressing the rv200. If the prettiness of it beckons you, go for it....but don't be surprised if you're slower than your buddy in an identical plane.

Default RV 74

I replaced my 200 RV with the new 74 RV. It looks cooler than cool. It slows in the pattern much better than the 200 RV.
