My wooden prop has a brass leading edge, many wooden props come with some type 
of leading edge protection. All the Hoffman and MT props do as well. The 
Hercules props have a composite leading edge. I flew IFR for many hours with no 
problems. Also, just because you are in cloud, it doesn't necessarily mean it's 
raining. So you can fly for hours IFR without damaging an unprotected wooden 
prop if you would want to. Also, the KR2 flies ok with a good build up of ice 
on the wings. It didn't seem to make much difference to performance, not sure 
about stall speeds, but I wasn't near stall speed so...  Go for it!!!
