What props are you trying, and how do they compare to what you had previously?

These are 34x20 low horsepower high performance props made by Arrowprop. I must admit that I would really like to have some p-tip props, but the cost was just to much for me to tackle right now. If I had a single place I would just go with what is proven...biprops or p-tips.

So far I have only flown the pattern just once, and they seem to work fine. They are the same diameter/pitch as the ones that I had previously, but these seem to "bite the air a bit more", especially at lower rpms. It's a bit early to say wether or not I think that these are going to be a super fit, but all indications are that they work just as well as what I had....static rpms, vibration, ect.

I'm getting away from the previous props because I don't know their history/age and the leading edges had a few spots missing the finnish. Another plus with these props over the older ones is seven laminates in the wood versus just three.
