Yamaha Introduces New Talon® Pontoon and Talon GP™ Aluminum SDS™ Propellers
TORONTO, ON., January 19, 2017 – Yamaha Motor Canada announced today the addition of two new propellers to its Talon family: the new Talon Pontoon and Talon GP Aluminum SDS propellers. The two new propellers bring Yamaha’s exclusive Shift Dampener System (SDS) technology to the thrust-optimized Talon family and deliver quiet performance to midrange-powered pontoons and lighter boats.
The Talon Pontoon and Talon GP SDS Propellers greatly reduce or eliminate the clunk that is sometimes associated with shifting in-line four-stroke outboards into gear. They also provide smooth and quiet in-gear operation, even at very low speeds. SDS can reduce the more audible sounds that can be transmitted to aluminum boats as well.
Talon Pontoon SDS Propellers are cast in brilliantly polished stainless steel. They have a significantly larger blade area that helps provide outstanding thrust and control, with added grip and reduced ventilation in turns – perfect for larger pontoons.
Talon GP aluminum propellers provide excellent grip on the water, especially in turns, and are ideal for a variety of lighter weight boats and applications using T50 to F115 outboards. No special tools or hardware is required for operation – just bolt the propeller on and go.
Both Talon Pontoon SDS and Talon GP SDS Propellers fit Yamaha T50, T60 and F70 through F115 four-stroke engines. They also fit 60-horsepower through 130-horsepower two-stroke Yamaha outboards.
