Cessna 152 Sensenich

Cessna 152 Sensenich

Hello I own a cessna 152 and I have been looking at the sensenich prop replacement.  I am looking at the standard prop not the cruse or climb prop.  I was wondering if anyone could give me some input on the performance with the replacement prop.  Is it worth the $ will I see an inprovement or what.  Thanks for the help.

Re: Cessna 152 Sensenich

I owned a C-152 with the Sens. prop--it was the cruise version.  Whatever you do, DON'T get the cruise version.  Static RPM was low, and takeoff/climb definitely was compromised, esp. in hot weather.  In cruise, it would do about 103-105 kts @ 75% which is OK, but many times I would have traded 5 or 6 knots for some climb power.  With 2 people on board in hot weather, it was VERY sluggish in take-off roll and climb (try 350-400 FPM)--did not feel comfortable at all.  I would not look for any increase in performance with the Sens. prop, only the freedom from the AD's on the McAuley...I believe thats the one.
