  I purchased a wood experimental prop from Sensenich . I was using a metal 
prop prior  "76X58" and have noticed about a 5% loss in performance at high 
RPM's, but my plane weights 19lbs less and has improved dramatically in the 
gyroscopics. Much less torqing and much easier on the crankshaft.

Note:  I had to go to a "76X60" to get close to the same speed and 
performance as my old metal prop. I would even consider trying a "76X61"

Prop was around $850.00 new.
