Wood Props on Cubs

Hi Guys,

It seems that I finally sold my metal McCauley prop off my cub. I'm ready to go out and buy a brand new Wood prop. I am slowly trying to return my cub to some original equipment. I am currently running a C82-12 with a Flanged Shaft and a McCauley 1A90 with a 44" pitch.

I called Sensenich and they recommended a W72GK-44 or a W72GK-46. I want to know what you guys recommend for the prop. I would rather have a little better short field and climb performance.

Also, what else am I going to have to buy to be able to mount this prop? I know that I need a crush plate for the front. I attached a picture of one that I really liked. Anyone know where I can find one like this?

I guess that I could also mount a small skullcap spinner. What does everyone like?

Also, I was recommended to Tiffin Aire to buy the prop. Any other recomendations?

Thanks for all of the help everyone. I am trying to get all of the mx items done this winter. I am taking off a week to go to Setimental Journey and 2 weeks to go to Oshkosh next year. Just trying to get all of the little things completed.
