I believe so. However, even if you were to use another rubber than Tan Super Sport, would you be able to get it in different sizes?Tan Super Sport seems to be agreed upon as some of the best rubber. However, if I am correct about this, it has a limited number of sizes. Are its advantages great enough to outweigh the difficulties of adjusting prop pitch?
I believe last year's thread had a detailed explanation in it somewhere if you can find it.How can you make something that allows you to wind by yourself/off plane?
I find the best lubricant to be Armor All. You don't want to use anything oil-based, as it will break down the rubber. A few years ago I got a bottle of rubber lubricant that I believe FAI Model Supply sold and I didn't care for it too much. It was too viscous and extremely messy. Didn't give me any more winds than Armor All did.What are the best lubricants, and is it best to lube before or after check-in?
See the following two discussions from last years list about winding off the plane.<snip>

Absolutely agree, don't sweat rubber except to use contest rubber until you are flying well north of two minutes.<SNIP>95% of WS teams should concentrate on those other factors.
