We'll, it didn't take long for the word to spread regarding the prop's performance. Folks running multiple four stroke outboard rigs started asking for right and left-hand rotation sets of the popular prop. Being the conservative person …

The Mercury® patented Performance Vent System® (PVS) enables operators to dial-in their propeller for peak planing performance. The PVS® system works in concert with robust blades that are hand blended and balanced by our propeller lab artisans. The tuned exhaust tube minimizes stern lift for enhanced bow lift, handling and overall boat performance.

A majority of Mercury Verado®, Mercury Pro FourStroke and MerCruiser® sterndrive applications will use the Bravo I FS with all four vent holes plugged with solid PVS fittings. Larger, heavier multiple engine applications may benefit by taking one or two fittings out for improved planing.

The Bravo I FS may be used with multiple OptiMax® outboard applications as well. A majority of those will use the Bravo I FS with all four vent holes opened for improved planing performance.
To maintain similar engine operating rpm in single engine applications, switching from a Tempest® Plus to the Bravo I FS would require a 1” increase in pitch. A switch from the Fury® and Revolution 4® to the Bravo I FS would require a 2” increase in pitch.
