Turning Point's latest aluminum propThe right propeller can make all the difference on a pontoon boat. Turning Point's Hustler Series aluminum propellers have been a popular choice for those looking to maximize overall performance of lower-horsepower outboards. Designed specifically for boats with 40-75hp engines with 3-1/2-inch gearcases, they deliver high top-end speeds, better handling, a faster hole shot and increased fuel efficiency.

Compatible with outboards from Evinrude/Johnson, Force, Honda, Mercury and Mariner, Yamaha, Nissan and Tohatsu, Suzuki and other manufacturers, the Hustler Series is engineered to provide stainless performance at aluminum prices. Employing the latest in blade design technology, the propellers offer progressive, tuned pitch angles to accelerate and channel water, minimizing slip and improving fuel economy.

Squeeze-cast for added strength, the durable Hustler propellers are protected from corrosion by a five-step powder-coat process, which creates a uniform, high-quality, long-lasting and attractive finish. Tuned rake angles compact the vortex produced by the prop, lifting the boat and boosting overall performance. A high-flow, through-barrel exhaust system ensures minimum exhaust back pressure for increased horsepower.

The inter-changeable MasterGuard Hub System utilizes a high-tech polymer that absorbs harmful engine vibrations and shift shock. Backed by the industry's only lifetime hub warranty, its marine-brass spline provides a long life and corrosion resistance.

The suggested retail prices of Turning Point's Hustler Series aluminum propellers start at $84.50, while the MasterGuard Hub System for 3-1/2-inch gearcase motors retails for $33. Turning Point Propellers has an extensive family of dealers and retail outlets available through its "Find a Dealer" section on its website at www.tpprops.com.

Turning Point has been engineering, manufacturing and marketing high-performance, pleasure craft aluminum and stainless steel propellers for over 10 years. For more information call 847-437-6800 or visit www.tpprops.com.
