    Curious if the climb performance will measurably improve. I flew Mike O's Redneck Cub with a three blade Catto (the silver one) and it was a scalded cat on climb out (even without the NOS, which I never used), but it had many many mods so hard to say how much the prop factored in to that.

    So please post an after action report...I'm curious in knowing the before and after difference.

    Any updates? Anyone know the performance differences? three-blade vs new 80" prop?

    Hey Gary, we haven't flown yet. We went with a rather extensive panel, just finishing that. It took about a year for the panel alone... 90% done 90% to go. I know when I was talking to Craig while ordering the prop he said another CC was buying the same prop for a seaplane, maybe Mitch has heard more on that.
