Kiwi Prop

My 3 blade Max prop has served us well but is starting to give us some issues mainly due to wear. Cost for a rebuild seems excessive compared to replacing with some of the newer props out there. Considering a 3 blade Kiwi prop. The composite blades and simplistic design are appealing as we'll as the ability to change pitch easily. Anyone else out there have any experience with these? I understand reverse is not as much bite as with other props but heck I don't back up allot! Have also heard some reports of noisy under power? Thanks for any feedback.
