“Don’t tell anyone else about the new Lab Finished Rev 4s. I would prefer to maintain the distinct advantage they provide for our hulls,” quipped Randy Scism – president/owner of Marine Technology, Inc. Randy personally helped me dial-in the new props.
“We experienced an improvement in both acceleration and top-end speed when running the Lab Finished Rev 4s with Verado 350s and 400Rs on our V-42 center consoles. Dollar for dollar – your Rev 4s provide the best value on the market,” Randy said.
Mercury Racing® Lab Finished® Our propeller technicians are second to none. They hand blend props for peak performance in both outboard and sterndrive applications. In fact – we were the first to provide the custom prop work and deem the process “Lab Finished”; a registered trademark of Mercury Marine.
Four Step Process:
• Blade surfaces are thinned in specific areas
• Modify leading edge
• Tune trailing cup heights
• Zero Balanced for maximum efficiency
Like many of our stainless steel through hub exhaust props, the Lab Finished Revolution 4s feature the Mercury patented Performance Vent System (PVS). PVS enables the user to fine tune the amount of venting needed for quick planing. The standard length exhaust tube, in addition to reducing the time-to-plane, also provides stern lift for maximum hull performance and an improved ride in a variety of conditions. I must admit I was a bit nervous releasing this information about the new Rev 4s after hearing Randy’s plead. At least I didn’t reveal his preferred pitch.
