I spoke to Picton's' ... and they advised that the 21" is ideal .......... 23" is standard, and dropping to 21 plus the 5 blades will give me loads of hole shot.
They advise that going to 19" will risk over revving.
I have put the standard 23" 3 blade Aluminium at the moment, and when I take it out in Spring I'll take some rest to plane times, Max speed & WOT measurements, and then swap to High 5 and repeat.
I'll post the results here .. maybe of interest.
Now have a spare High 5 to sell ....... maybe I'll hang on till spring and put it on eBay.
