Yamaha Talon Propollers
Yamaha Marine Group announced it has launched a new series of high-performance aluminum propellers for its mid-range outboards that are standard-equipped with the exclusive Shift Dampener System (SDS), bringing no-clunk, quiet operation to a broader range of boats. Named Talon, these new propellers were designed specifically for larger Yamaha mid-range outboards and have an all-new blade architecture that’s perfect for pontoon, walleye, deep-V and fiberglass boats.
A great companion to Yamaha’s new F115B outboard, the new Talon propellers bring a new level of quiet and comfort to Yamaha outboards from the F70 up to the F115, and the high thrust T50 and T60, as well. This propeller series features a new, replaceable SDS hub that requires no special hardware for proper operation.
Talon propellers feature a high-efficiency, low-slip design, have a 13.5-inch diameter, and are available in 9-inch, 10.5-inch, 12-inch, 14-inch, and 16-inch pitches. They not only greatly reduce the clunk that is sometimes associated with shifting, but also provide smooth and quiet in-gear operation, even at very low speeds. This is of particular benefit for outboards using in-line cylinder designs.
The new Yamaha Talon propellers are expected to be available in early spring 2014. Visit www.yamahaoutboards.com.
