Best 3 blade prop for BME 116 Extreme/w ProFlows?

Hi All,
Like the title says, I'm looking for the best 3 blade prop for my setup.
I'm flying an Extreme Flight 104" Extra 300. I originally was using a Mej 28/10 for the first few flights. The prop would rip at just over 1/2 throttle! It was on that day I was also told at our field we all have to have 3 blades and canisters recommended.
One of the guys (Rob Hoover) has loaned me a Mej 28/12 2 blade to try out also but I would like to hear from anyone going the three blade route.
Thanks in advance!

The BME has monster power! As I said, it rips the 28/10 Mej at just over 1/2 throttle. Starts easy, idles smooth, great transition. I don't know why more guys are running them. Just fine with me!

I have a 102" Yak SP-55M with DLE-111. I'm using a Biela 25X12 3 blade, it's is more quiet that my 27X10 wooden prop, nice braking on down lines and no problems with vertical climb and flying a Basic IMAC sequence......that is my skill level. Not super fast at WOT but Yak's tend not to be a fast flyer anyhow.

I'd think you could easily swing a 26X12 three blade. Biela seems to be a quality prop.
