For the folks who don't know Steve makes some of the finest Carbon props on the Experimental Market.
I love my prop I now have 65 hours on it and it doesn't have a ding or scratch on it from rocks or pebbles, and the LE abrasion tape is still original. I can speak enough good things about this prop for the Pitts S-1S. If my prop was still aluminum I would be adding dressing dings and painting my prop to my conditional inspection list. Not to mention my plane would weigh 780 lb not 763 lb like it does now. With a 5 lb/hp plane that is like adding an effective 3.5 Hp to your plane and reducing the gyro loads on your crank.
Steve, Nice looking website. I get so many questions on where I got my prop it will be great to finally give a website to those folks who ask. Keep up the good work
I bought mine used from a private party with only 25 hours on it so I don't know how much they are retail. My seller couldn't get the weight and balance to work out he was to far aft and had to add 14 lb of ballast to the nose. I however don't have a weight and balance issue as I only weigh 143 lb or 153 lb with a chute I already had a pretty forward CG with a aluminum prop. So shaving the 17 lb at the nose really helped me get my plane right at the middle of the envelope. I believe I have a 76-62 I will have to check the logs tonight.
I don't know for sure but last I talked to Steve they were somthing
around 3K about as much as one would spend on a NEW Sensenich wood or
Yup, Thanks scottly, Yeah I have an National 360. So I fit that bill easily and no it wasn't shady deal and no it hasn't been opened. Would I like a Softie, you bet they are comfy but my plane came with a chute and it works and I will continue to use it until I come up with $1300-1500 just lying around doing nothing or my re-packer tells me it is not airworthy.
