(Nov 4, 2015 - FOND DU LAC, WI) Mercury Marine, the world leader in marine propulsion and technology, has introduced SpitFire X7, a stainless steel propeller designed to improve all performance facets of the growing 75-115hp outboard class.
SpitFire X7 is the first propeller in the 75-115hp engine class to be marketed with Mercury's proprietary X7 alloy, which is 30 percent stronger and four times more durable than conventional steel. Using the X7 alloy and building off design elements from the best-in-class aluminum SpitFire, the SpitFire X7 significantly improves acceleration, top speed and holding ability compared to other stainless steel propellers in its class.
"A high-performance propeller is the most cost-efficient way to improve a boater's experience, and for the 75-115hp outboard class, the SpitFire X7 delivers," said Jared Reichenberger, brand manager for Mercury Propellers. "With gains of up to 1.5 miles per hour and substantial acceleration improvements versus other stainless propellers, the SpitFire X7 is the new benchmark in performance for
midrange outboard engines."
The new SpitFire X7 is available at Mercury dealers in 15-inch, 17-inch, 19-inch and 21-inch pitches.
