Default Sensenich ground adjustable prop review

For those interested in Sensenich's GA prop, here's my review after putting about 25 hours on it so far.

Thank you for doing that! One of the props I am considering for sure.

Does anyone know the spinner diameter of the Sensenich Ground adjustable 2 blade prop for a O-360?

Cole,
Are the forward and aft spinner bulkheads included with the prop and spinner or are they purchased from Van's? Can my existing spinner and bulkhead(s) be used with this prop?

Steve, the spinner and bulkheads are purchased separately from the prop, but are available in both 12" and 13" from Sensenich. I don't have a 100% answer for you but I'd guess that your current spinner won't work with the hub for the ground adjustable. I bought the new spinner and bulkheads from Sensenich and I believe I was right at $4200 shipped for everything.

Default Follow up question

How much did your CG move after the prop swap? The GA prop is about 20 pounds lighter than the fixed pitch Sensenich, correct?
