Default Spinner for large apc

I need a 2.750-3" spinner to fit an 18/10 apc prop. The prop hub diamater is 1.750" and all the spinners I've seen only have a knurled contact area of about 1" diameter. There is a warning with the prop to be sure that the knurled area contacts the entire hub to alleviate stress. I don't mind slotting and balancing the cone if I have to, but I really don't want to lay down 75 bucks for a custom true-turn. Plastic cone with a aluminum back plate will be fine. What are you using???

IMO on any engine larger than a 46 I always switch to all aluminum spinners. I just don't trust plastic on bigger engines. Plus plastic spinners look cheap. If you have a bigger bird treat her right with good gear all around. (quality hinges, control horns, engine mount, spinner, etc.)

You didn't mention what engine you are using but if its spinning an 18X10 you probably will want an all aluminum spinner.
