Turning Point Hustler® aluminum propellers deliver stainless steel performance at aluminum prices.
Boasting the same race-proven geometry as Turning Point’s stainless steel propellers, Turning Point Hustler aluminum propellers resist blade flex to deliver both improved fuel economy and performance. Under acceleration, tuned exhaust vents in the prop barrel reduce water density around the blades to produce faster hole shots and higher horsepower. Hustler aluminum propellers are protected by a five step powder-coated finish. Hubs and propellers are sold separately.
Hustler propellers are squeeze cast for added strength and performance.
All Turning Point aluminum propellers are squeeze cast for superior strength and resistance to power-robbing flex. This exclusive manufacturing process virtually eliminates voids, pockets and air bubbles within the propeller material, creating a much tighter grain structure than is possible in a conventional die-cast process. The tighter grain structure and increased density of the squeeze cast process allows a thinner blade that combines aggressively designed cupping and trailing edges for reduced prop slide and blow out in turns while maximizing top speed and fuel economy.
