Yamaha Marine Group said it has launched the new Talon SS4 propeller, which is sized to fit lightweight, mid-range outboards used on flats boats.

The Talon SS4 is derived from Yamaha’s Turbo FX4 propeller and features the newest iteration of Yamaha’s patented Shift Dampener System.

Yamaha’s new SDS system seeks to reduce or eliminates shift clunk and propeller vibrations that may be present at low speeds. SDS also provides cushioning during high-speed operation.

“Yamaha’s quiet, powerful midrange four-stroke outboards are the perfect power solution for flats anglers,” Yamaha Marine Group product planning and information manager David Meeler said in a statement. “Now there’s a propeller that enhances the approach needed for successful flats fishing, the Talon SS4. The new four-blade propeller has a combination of lift, acceleration and SDS-quiet to deliver the ultimate flats-fishing experience.”
