Mercury Racing has a well-earned reputation for handcrafting high-performance and racing propellers that consistently offer unrivaled performance. That reputation is based on more than 50 years of experience. In the mid-1970s, Mercury Hi-Performance (the precursor business to Mercury Racing) began creating custom racing propellers in its shop in Oshkosh, Wis.
When it comes to building custom high-performance catamarans, California-based builder DCB has become known for its top tier quality and for squeezing every drop of performance out of its new boats – all while offering customers a multitude of customization on every hull model it produces.
Pro anglers demand no-compromise performance every time they hit the water. When there’s money on the line, every advantage counts. Which is why more pro anglers are turning to Mercury Racing Bravo I props to maximize the speed and handling of their bass and multi-species boats.
The recent design evolution by leading builders of high-performance bass boats will leverage the performance of new four-stroke outboard motors offered by Mercury Marine and Mercury Racing. These boats are faster than ever, easier to fish, and better for the environment.
A number of boat manufacturers have responded to angler requests for larger and more stable hulls. The changes have resulted with the consoles moving forward, changing the center of gravity and weight distribution.
This is how Mercury Racing puts power to the water. Two recent test sessions with high-performance bass boats powered by the Mercury Racing 300R outboard demonstrate the performance potential of the new Mercury Racing 300HP 5-Blade CNC Cleaver propeller.
Correct engine height is critical to getting the most performance from multi-species fishing boats running a Mercury Racing propeller. Fortunately, it’s easy to adjust the engine height of most outboard-powered boats.
The Mercury Racing Sterndrive 5 and 6 blade CNC Cleavers are designed to pair with M6 and M8 drives, although a Bravo XR Sportmaster version is available for 520 to 600hp applications. Each propeller is custom made to order, the precise 5-axis CNC machining process guarantees pitch, diameter, and rake are perfectly true to ensure that lift, handling, and speed characteristics are not only class-leading, but consistent. Thousands of pitch, rake and diameter combinations are available to dial in the maximum performance of almost any high-performance boat. From Unlimited Offshore class racers to poker runners, the Mercury Racing CNC Cleaver in 5- or 6-blade configuration is the propeller of choice for the most-demanding boat owners.
