Experimenting with props size

Which provide more thrust 6045 or 7038 props and longer flight times.

Im experimenting i was going to try mixing prop sizes as i have a Hex with 6045 props but i noticed the centre two props i could fit 7038 7045 or 7060 in there.

Has anyone mixed props before what are the pro and cons can it be done.

I was thinking

front 6045 cw ccw

center 7038 7045 7060 cw ccw

back 6045 cw ccw

I dont want to over do it my hex is running 6045 without heat issues on 3s with 2300kv motors.
