Don't don't forget How dangerous it is to go offshore out of the sight of land with just a single. You need to load twins up on that bad boy.

It's because they are so far out front in the races that the cameraman doesn't have any opportunity to catch photos.

The early hype does not mention any suggested propeller.

Any speculation on what prop to mount on a Mercury 450, assuming twins on a 5,000 pound 27 foot deep V center console.

I would imagine a special 4 or possibly 5 blade prop. Who knows

From another thread:

"On the new 450R models, the popular MAX5 and Outboard CNC Cleaver props are required for use with the surface piercing Sport Master gearcase. For 5.44 HP gearcase applications, Mercury Racingís Bravo I FS, Bravo I LT, Enertia ECO XP, and Rev 4 XP are excellent options. "

The press release says the cleaver or Max5 props for the sportsmaster gear case, and Bravos, Enertia Eco XP or Rev 4s for HD lower units.

I don't know if it's how many will buy it, I think it's a question of how many will they buy at once to put on the back of their boats?
