The Flo-Torq Reflex begins shipping today, and will replace the rubber hubs formerly used on 40-60 standard-gearcase propellers.
In the event of an underwater impact, the Flo-Torq Reflex sleeve sacrifices itself to protect key drive components.
Additionally â€“ and this is something all boaters will appreciate â€“ the Flo-Torq Reflex hub kit is â€œfield serviceable,â€ which means boaters can replace a hub by themselves in just minutes in the event of impact with an underwater obstruction.
Another consumer benefit is the price â€“ Flo-Torq Reflex-equipped propellers are available at the same price as the rubber-hub propellers it’s replacing.
â€œThe Reflex Hub is a product that minimizes annoying noise and vibration, while still providing the drive protection and field serviceability that Flo-Torq hub systems are famous for,â€ said Ben Duke, Director of Mercury Propellers. â€œIt provides the boater with a better all-around experience.â€
