Default Tower Corsair Brushless Rx-R 39"

Has anyone gotten a replacement propeller for the Tower Corsair Rx-R Brushless 39" Corsair? It's a really fun model and for the price, it's a gem.
I fly at a fairly rough field and have my share of nose overs and with them, broken props. This model and the Millenium Master use a Tower GPMQ 6630 Slo Flyer 9 x 4.5 prop with the turned back ends.
Tower has had them on back order since Nov. 2012 and constantly changing the delivery month by month. Now late March.
I've tried std APC 9x4.5 electric and they actually make it fly like crap.
I have a couple of slo flyer props ordered from Horizon, but not sure if the hub is wide enough diameter to allow reaming out for the shaft
Has anyone else been up against this and what did you use?
Thanks!

I'm using a 9x4.7 prop from HK that may be similar to the 9x4.5 SF. It is TGS for $1

I'm sorry I haven't gotten to the maiden yet (only have watt meter readings)

I could also send you a GP 9x4.5 SF if it would help you out. I can replace it later when I order from Tower.

Hey guver,
I'll check out HK. I never thought about them.!
I appreciate the offer but can't take your prop since that's the same one that I'm griping about and late march is the latest delivery that's changed ever month since Nov.
Let me check out Hobby King, thanks much for the thought!
BTW, when you do maiden it, I think you'll have a blast.
