Yamaha Introduces New Props and Smoother Shifting to Midrange Outboards

Capt. Ted Lund

 

Known for maPropeller By Application   Yamaha Outboards (1)nufacturing some of the smoothest running, shifting and quietest outboards on the market, Yamaha’s midrange motors just got a little smoother and quieter thanks to a new series of hi-tech, hi-performance aluminum propellers.

Specifically designed for outboards ranging from 70- to 115-hp,Talon aluminum props feature Yamaha’s proprietary Shift Dampner System (SDS™) for no-clunk, quieter operation across a wider range of boats. Yamaha’s SDS was previously only available for larger horsepower engines. The new props are perfect for pontoon, walleye, deep-V and fiberglass boats.

The new props not only greatly reduce the clunk sometimes associated with shifting, but also provide smooth and quiet in-gear operation, even at very low speeds — particularly for outboards featuring in-line cylinder designs.

Yamaha’s Talon series of props feature a high-efficiency, low slip design and a 13.5-inch diameter. The propellers also come in 9-inch, 10.5-inch, 12-inch, 14-inch, and 16-inch pitches to meet the requirements of just about any midrange power application.

“Now, you don’t have to be an offshore boater to enjoy smooth and quiet operation when shifting or trolling,” says David Meeler, Yamaha’s Product Information and Propeller Manager. “Talon propellers give you the smooth and quiet operation of SDS, and along with performance from an aluminum prop that has to be felt to be believed. These are high-performance aluminum propellers that are perfect for the mid-range segment of the boat market.”

Talon propellers feature new, replaceable SDS hubs that require no additional special hardware for operation. In addition to being compatible with the range of traditional 70-hp to 115-hp outboards, Talon props are an excellent companion for high-thrust models like the T50 and T60 engines.

The new Yamaha Talon propellers hit the water this Spring and are available through authorized Yamaha dealers nationwide.
