I went with the Sensenich metal prop Vans suggested for the 160 HP. Got a good deal from a previous buyer selling never installed (he changed his mind and went constant speed). Iím right in the middle of the flight W&B.

Selection of prop is a trade off. I like the durability of the metal but wonder how much smoother, if any, a fiberglass/wood prop would be. And of course metal is heavier. I donít feel the 2600 rpm is much of a factor but I donít normally fly at the high rpm limits.

I figure if I donít abuse the prop there will be nominal maintenance costs going forward.
