Folding vs Feathering Prop - views requested

I am looking for your views, pros/cons, experiences and recommendations for selecting a type and model of prop.

My Celestial 48' is powered by a 72hp Merecedes Diesel with a fixed 3 blade 18" 18RH12 prop.

I am considering changeing this to either a folding or feathering prop -leaning more towards Gori's 3 blade at this point.

It would be much appreciated as well if you could include your sales and service experience with the dealer who sold you the prop.

Thanks and look forward to views.
