Default prop size break in

Hi,
I picked up a new Saito 17 CC and am getting ready for break in.
The book says to us the smaller prop, more fuel going thru it I would think.
They give 3 props, 14x8, 15x6, and 16x6. the 14 is the smallest , but I would think the 15x6 would be the lighter of the loads???
I always went down one in pitch , when going up in in Diameter.

thanks for any help, not sure it makes a big difference. But I try to do the best I can.

I'd probably go with the 15x6 as well. On paper, it's going to place the same load on the engine that the 14x8 will.
