Mercury Propellers, Fond du Lac, WI, has recently extended its line of Fury Propellers to include a 27-pitch model, providing boaters (including performance enthusiasts and owners of bass boats) with 250 hp-plus engines improved top-end speeds and holeshots.
The 27-pitch model is constructed from the company's patented X7 alloy that is 30 percent stronger and four times more durable than conventional stainless steel, says Mercury. The design also enables Mercury to manufacture a prop with thinner blades and higher rake angles to offer optimum durability.
“From the moment word got out about the performance of the Fury, customers have been asking us to extend the product line into new pitch ranges,” said Dirk Bjornstad, brand manager for Mercury Propellers. “The new 27-pitch Fury will allow the go-fast crowd with 250 hp-plus engines and lighter boats to experience the top-end and holeshot.”
The Fury is also available in 24-, 25-, and 26-inch pitches.
