Spitfire XP

The Mercury Racing Spitfire XP propeller, designed to be the ultimate prop for the new Mercury Racing 60R outboard, can also offer outstanding performance on Mercury outboards up to 115 horsepower. The Spitfire XP has a four-blade design and long barrel that combine to deliver extra stern lift for lightning-fast hole shot, a key advantage in skinny-water applications. This precision-tuned Mercury Racing Pro Finish propeller is crafted in Mercury-exclusive X7 stainless steel alloy. It’s offered in 12-inch to 21-inch pitch in half-inch increments to dial in optimal RPM at wide-open throttle.

Info Sheet

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.
