The new 2016 Mercury Racing MAX5 is a custom five blade wheel, developed and hand-crafted by the Mercury Racing Propeller Lab. It is designed for single and multiple engine applications including Verado 400R outboard and 600 SCi sterndrive.
The Lab Finished MAX5 provides a measurable reduction in propeller slip, (up to 12%). The prop is so efficient, builders are finding they can run MAX5s higher to take full advantage of engines fitted with the race-proven Sport Master gearcase.
The 15-inch diameter MAX5 is offered in a pitch range of 23 to 34 inches in one-half inch increments.
The one-half inch pitch offerings enable engines to be dialed-in to their maximum rpm operating range for enhanced throttle response, optimized cruise fuel efficiency and top speed. The stainless steel prop features the Mercury-patented Performance Vent System (PVS).
PVS enables the user to fine-tune the amount of venting needed for quick planing.
