Brands:Mercury Marine / Mercruiser
Brand new, genuine Mercury Marine / Mercruiser Spitfire 4 Blade Prop 14x21 Propeller. This is a factory original equipment part, not aftermarket. Fits: 135-300HP 2-Stroke and 4?Stroke outboards and Alpha and Bravo I sterndrives.
It goes without saying that this 4-bladed prop out-performed our old 3-bladed14x23P prop for hole shots and cruising speed, but we were amazed at how much QUIETER this prop ran compared to our old propeller. Our 19' bowrider use to plane in about 4 seconds; I'd say it's closer to 2.5 seconds now. It's also use to take about 6 seconds to hit 30mph, but yesterday it took just over 4 seconds.
Replaced 14.5x19 on 4.3 Merc on 195 Stingray. Live in high altitude, 6400ft. Hole shot improved significantly,40% faster, while cruising speed rpm were lovered by 200 rpm. Good gas savings. I lost WO speed by 6 mph which is a good trade off for me. Holds on plane in lover speed. Measurements done by GPS.
The 4 blade prop does seem to get me into plane faster and do better in turns. I have not compared a Mercury prop to another brand, and the one replaced the original 3 blade Black Max, but this is genuine Mercury and top quality.
Just as advertised. Excellent price for a premium product. Well packaged and delivered promptly.
It's a perfect pitch for 21' Chaparral H2O with 4.3 MPI Alpha Gen 2 1.65; however, I don't like how it sings at low RPM.
Was having an acceleration problem with my boat, swapped the prop out and now it gets up out of the water.
Quick hole shots and no loss on top end. Installed on a 2007 Tahoe Q4 FS
Unbelievable performance. Switched out my 3 blade Aluminum prop for this one.
