    I just bought 2 props from Roman. He was well but had no power, but still working.

    I have been communicating with Roman last several days.

    3 blade prop with spinner.

    Trying to get proper size spinner. Weight of the prop and hub is about 13.5 lbs compared to Whirlwind is 18lbs, Sensenich is 21lbs, my Catto weighs 12lbs.

    With the heavy engine, 260lbs, need less weight up front.

    Chatted with Steve Henry and he said good things about them also.

    Price is $1628.00 US shipped compared to almost $5000 for Whirlwind or Sensenich.

    Looks like I will be selling My Catto 76" 42" pitch soon!

    Im running an IO-340 with a 80 Whirlwind GA-200L STOL. It was about $3200 3 yrs or so back. I have no complaints. At 14 degrees (low pitch) I have seen 3000/min. Currently running 17 deg pitch and I cruise about 105 at @4g/hr at 2100 rpm

    3,000Ft/min! Holy Crap. At the airspeeds we fly, isn't that about vertical? Damn

    I get up to 2000 feet a min by myself with full fuel. probably get more on a lighter fuel load.
    But 3000 ft/min, I am skeptical.
    Catto fixed pitch prop climb pitch. 2650 RPM climb out.
