Default RE: TBM Props?

Yes, I had a Vess22a and-got 7300rpm, put a TBM 22,8 on it I got 6630rpm. One guy had over a $1000 in props, he flies IMAC and did a lot of testing, he found one engine/plane/prop combo where the TBM was best, but most of the time it was the worst, or right at the bottom.

I'm not throwing my collection of TBM props away, but I haven't found a combo that likes them.

In your case the TBM works well, that's good.
