The old motor (2012 Mercury 250 Pro xs) ran 70 mph wide open. Normal cruising speed is 40-45 usually. Haven't put it in the water with the new motor yet.
i got a buddy looking at a new 2013 proxs. he was told not to get it because it was rated 10-12 hp less than the 2012 model which i think was actually rated around 275 hp, any truth to that?
Just got the word: This is a newly-designed "Gen-2" Torquemaster Gearcase (released in early January, 2013). To avoid confusion... we'll call it the "Wingmaster".
Features Verado internals, improved LIFT, and is designed to be run higher than the original Torquemaster model. Side water inlets should not require any blockoffs/modifications. Strut area above the propeller also features torque-canceling technology.
Currently, it DOES NOT BACKFIT due to changes in the relief mechanism of the trim system on models that utilize this gearcase.
Early reports indicate it will be a little faster than the previous Torquemaster Model, and will provide improved lift characteristics.
Same here. One more week in Brazil then home for 28 days. Got a trip planned for Toledo to fish in the Texas Oilman Tourney and a tourney on D'Arbonne March 2nd.
