Campbell prop

We have had a Campbell prop on our PS37 since we repowered in 2006.On delivery the prop was over-pitched and had to be repitched.The company has been difficult to deal with and do not often return phone calls.I eventually had to have the prop repitched by a local prop shop.
It did have plenty of thrust but loaded the engine too much and wouldnt allow the engine to reach max RPM.Also at low speed the prop caused vibration in the engine. The repitch did help .As far as drag I don't think that the Campbell was any worse than the 2 blade fixed prop that it replaced.
