Mercury Marine has begun shipping its new Flo-Torq Reflex propeller hub kit, which eliminates clutch rattle, minimizes vibration and provides lower-unit protection for 40 to 60 horsepower outboards with standard gearcases. The unit replaces the rubber hubs formerly used for these units, and will carry similar pricing. MSRP for prop and Reflex kit is $151.30, says Mercury Propellers brand manager, Dirk Bjornstad.
In the event of an underwater impact, the Flo-Torq Reflex sleeve sacrifices itself to protect key drive components. The Flo-Torq Reflex hub kit is also field serviceable, so boaters can replace a hub by themselves in just minutes.
“The Reflex Hub is a product that minimizes annoying noise and vibration, while still providing the drive protection and field serviceability that Flo-Torq hub systems are famous for,” said Ben Duke, Director of Mercury Propellers. “It provides the boater with a better all-around experience.”
