I found a Whirlwind GA 200 on barnstormers with 12 hours on it for $1500 which is about a grand off new. I think some other planes use this on an o290.

Does anyone have any experience with them?

I quickly went over to Barnstormers and checked the ad. If I'm looking at the same ad, it's for a Continental O-200 engine and won't fit a Lycoming O-290.

Yes that's the one. Listed on their website it shows the same last number for 200, 235 and 290. They all are listed under the ga 200. Maybe there is just a difference adapter plate for book sizes when you order. Even then a pretty good price. I know the short wing piper forums show shone using it on their clipper with 290 and i think i saw videos of a tailwind using them.

I wanted any personal opinions from you guys about them before calling the company to see whay i need to do to fit it based on my prop hub. U don't like wasting my time calling companies if it's not a product anyone i trust would use.

Thanks for the heads up though!

I have the Whirlwind prop on my O290G, from the invoice the model number is GA200L-616-H, short hub and short blades for a 68" dia. My motor has a SAE-2 prop hub using 3/8" prop bolts, don't know what an O200 has. The Whirlwind web site list the O200 prop as a GA200CN and the Lycoming as a GA200L.

Note: I love my Whirlwind prop, I get better performance and I don't worry about flying through the rain.
