Mercury Revolution 4 23p prop

Only had this on the boat for a day to test it. Unfortunately it doesn't compliment my setup so it's going up for sale again. Has the PVS vent system on it and I can chuck some vent plugs in for you to find the perfect balance.

Very good condition and will come with a hub kit to fit

Price: 350 (These are 600 + shipping new from Mercury! That is what I paid for it a month ago!)

Pictures to follow.

Just wondering,,
You say it doesnt compliment your set up, what was you expecting from this prob..?
I'm interested to what this prop actually achieved with your set up in comparison to the prop which you replaced with it and of course the dimentions of the other prop, only asking because i'm still learning about prop selection myself.
Cheers
Mark

Hi Mark,

I was told this prop would be more stable than the 3 bladed tempest that was on the boat and better for skiing behind. However, this prop caused a significant flat spot on acceleration on my engine and After speaking to other experts was advised to put the tempest back on.

The tempest prop is exactly the same pitch as this one which is baffling. Hopefully someone will benefit more from this than I did!

That's interesting feedback, you would think that more blade surface area on that prop would push the boat with a bit more torque, maybe the engine itself had to work harder with the 4 blades causing the flat spot in which case may have been more suitable for a bigger HP motor, I'm just trying to work out the physics 🙄🙄
Cheers all the same though 👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻
