I suggest everyone to have a thrust stand and watt meter. That is all I have really been speaking about. I'm not sure why that is provocative to you.
A slow stick will have at most 10 possible prop combinations.
You do not need to test APC, wood, or any other kind of wacky propeller because it will only take a slow-flyer/park--flyer propeller from GWS. I can assure you, nothing will be more accurate than measuring the watts and thrust yourself.
The point of the calculator is to simulate this.
Why would you go with a simulation if it is so easy to do the real thing yourself?
