Gary,

After seeing the picture of your Highlander here, it looks like you might be running a Sensenich prop? Or is it a Whirlwind? What diameter? Do you like it?

I have a 3 blade Sensenich 69-70 inch for mine but haven't tried it yet, and really like my 2 blade 70 inch Sensenich, so debating if it would gain me anything?

Hey Paul,
It's a Whirlwind 70". Really nice prop with the nickel edge guard. So far after 30 hours with 100 plus water take off and landings I don't see any wear on the prop.. I cruise at 5250 RPM, 95MPH with the floats on. Top speed is around 108 with the floats and 114 without.Triangle GPS course I've done several times.

That's pretty impressive top speeds. Obviously that prop works well. Guess I'm gonna have to try my Sensenich 3 blade (which for the record looks pretty much identical to the Whirlwind when put next to each other)
