    Just read that Mercury is coming out with a new line of Props made from a new alloy that they developed.It is supposed to be much lighter than and 30%stronger than Stainless steel.This would mean more speed and according to Mercury could be the equivalent of adding 30hp to the larger engines.I'm sure it would have the same effect on smaller engines when they make those props.I believe they will be called "Enertia". Sounds interesting and I think they are due out in early 06.

    Lets hope they do a better job of balancing them than do most of the marine manufacturers do, including the props Merc makes now. They all need work.
