ProKicker outboards feature a deeper gearcase and a four-blade,
high-thrust propeller with matching gear ratio – the perfect setup for
trolling and precise control in all conditions. The ProKicker gearcase
is engineered to be rugged and durable, with robust gears and bearings
and a heavy-duty skeg that’s 55% thicker and twice as strong
side-to-side as the previous gearcase.

power. With a longer design and bigger components, Mercury Command
Thrust was made specifically to deliver the type of power, thrust and
control that wider, heavier boats demand.
The Command Thrust Difference (Blue shaded areas represent prop and gearcase advantages)
20% larger prop increases control especially at low speeds.
Taller gearcase puts the prop deeper, below turbulent water, for improved performance.
A low 2.42:1 gear ratio delivers thrust and maneuveraility that big loads demand.
Oversized Antiventilation Plate. Oversized design prevents air from being drawn into the prop, which increases efficiency.
