9A, Sensenich aluminum with Sensenich aluminum spinner to Sensenich GA. My 9A was a little heavy on the nose. I can now possibly load out of CG, but it’s crazy scenario…but possible. The new prop is noticeably smoother running, the change in direction in pitch it just noticeably more responsive, and I live more in the middle of the trim range. I got maybe two knots out of it. The idle is not as smooth below 700rpm, but it’s not objectionable, still nicer than the flight school planes. While the RPM restriction was a presumed limit, I never spent or spend significant time there anyway, unless it’s a speed run at 8000’DA.
Full disclosure, I went to EI and a lightened flywheel at the same time.
It was the right decision for me, and it looks sharp.
