You haven't really posed a question. A couple of thoughts:

You can check the climb performance against the book and then
extrapolate to where you intend to go, so you can decide for
yourself whether it's what you want/need.

If you are basing this JUST on indicated RPMs, have the tach checked
before anything else.

Taking a bare prop to the Sensenich shop for a pitch measurement and
inspection should be cheap and quick.
