Mercury debuts new outboard propellers

Posted on

Mercury Propellers introduced Spitfire, the company’s first four-blade aluminum performance propeller designed for boaters using 25-hp to 125-hp outboards.

“There’s a large segment of customers in the pontoon and freshwater fishing market who are comfortable with aluminum propellers, but still want maximum performance from their boat,” Mercury Propellers brand manager Dirk Bjornstad said in a statement. “Our research shows that these customers place a premium on fast time to plane and solid holding in turns. Our engineers delivered just that while retaining the top-end speed that people have gotten from the Black Max.”

In addition to the standard Spitfire, there are three propellers in the line designed for the demands of pontoon boats.

The Spitfire propellers for 40-hp to 60-hp standard gear-case engines are available now. Spitfire pontoon propellers will be available in October, and the 25-hp to 30-hp and the 75-hp to 125-hp outboard propellers will be available at the end of the year.

    I just got a new Mercury Spitfire prop for my 2011 Mercury 40 hp, four stroke EFI, all I can say is WOW !!! what a huge night and day performance increase over the 3 blade prop I had, I was skeptical, but what a difference it made, I droped from a 14 pitch to a 12 and I gained tons of top end speed with an incredible launch and on plane quickness, I never knew was possible, really unbeleivable.although I cant compare it to any other 4 blade props , in my opinion this is a winner!
