Propeller specs for Explorer

I am looking at a couple of props for my Explorer which is nearing completion.
What would the ideal specs be for the 912UL in the Explorer?

Of Oom Piet de Necker. Had a warp drive on my bush baby, crap, wanted to put a Ivo on and didn't like what I found out so went with a P-Prop and best decision. Sold the plane but IIRC it was a 72x52 prop.

PS: I had a 912 extra, +-95hp.
