The Mercury Racing MAX 5 propeller, developed and hand-crafted by the Mercury Racing Propeller Lab, is designed for single and multiple engine applications including the Verado 400R outboard and 600 SCi sterndrive. The Lab Finished Max 5 provides a measurable reduction in propeller slip, (up to 12%). In fact, the Max 5 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 MAX 5 is offered in a pitch range of 22.3 to 34 inches. One-half inch pitch offerings and addition of new 0.3″ and 0.8″ pitch sizes for 22″, 24″, 26″, 28″, 30″ and 32″ base pitch models 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.
