Mercury expands tournament-level propeller line with Fury 4 at the GEICO Bassmaster Classic

FOND DU LAC, Wis. (March 4, 2016) – Mercury Propellers is giving “heavy boat” anglers just what they’ve been asking for by introducing the Fury 4 propeller at the 2016 GEICO Bassmaster Classic, March 4-6 on Grand Lake O’ the Cherokees in Tulsa, Oklahoma.

Bass tournament anglers who load their boats with the latest fishing technology require a propeller that will help them reach top speeds ahead of the competition. The Fury 4 has four high-progressive-rake blades made of Mercury’s X7 Alloy for additional lift and superior top speed on heavy, tournament-loaded bass boats.

The Fury 4 features 8 PVS holes that get boats on plane faster and deliver excellent shallow-water launches. What’s more, the Fury 4 delivers stable handling and superior holding in rough water, so anglers can get to the weigh-in on time no matter what conditions might be.

Mercury’s Fury 4 complements the original Fury propeller, so now there’s a Fury propeller for all anglers. While the three-blade original Fury set the speed standard for bass boats with light and medium loads, the Fury 4 gives competitive bass anglers with tournament-loaded boats an additional 1 mph over the Fury – making it the fastest propeller in the world for heavy tournament-loaded boats.

The new Fury 4 from Mercury Propellers is available in 24-, 25- and 26-inch pitches in right-hand rotation. It is recommended for tournament-loaded bass boats with outboard power in excess of 200hp.
