Turning Point's new four-blade aluminum Hustler propeller uses two different blade geometries for increased performance, according to the company.

The variable-rake design of two opposing blades (with aggressive pitch) delivers improved cornering and quicker hole shots. The other two cleaver-style blades produce greater top speeds and enhance stern lift, says vice president of sales and marketing Ron Bailey. "Hustler propellers offer stainless-steel performance at aluminum prices," says Bailey. The wheel, which carries a lifetime warranty, utilizes shock-absorbing polymers and a corrosion-free, solid brass spindle. It can be used on outboards from 150 to 300 hp, and it works with Mercury Flow-Torq, Michigan Wheel XHS and Solas Rubex hub kit systems. Offered in 14-by-7, 14-by-19 and 14-by-21-inch sizes, the Hustler has an MSRP starting at $135.50, while the MasterTorque Hub Kit System starts at $48. (Dealer prices are 40 percent off MSRP.)
