About Turning Point Propellers
Stainless Steel Performance at Aluminum Prices
Hustler aluminum boat propellers for 8 – 300+hp
Turning Point offers the best handling and cornering aluminum props available!
The highly efficient design equals better fuel economy, better top end, faster hole shot, and excellent cornering and handling.
- Tuned Vents for Fast Hole Shot - Vent holes in the prop barrel allow the propeller blades to spin faster at slower speeds. This give you more horsepower, faster acceleration and a faster hole shot. Turning Point is the only manufacturer that offers this race proven feature on aluminum props.
- Performance Tuned Rake Angles - Higher rake angles tighten the vortex produced by the propellers, adding to boat lift and overall performance.
- Squeeze Cast for Added Strength - Strong and stiff blade tips. Eliminates air bubbles in metal that make die-cast competitor's blades weak and inefficient.
- High Flow-Through Barrel Exhaust System - Maximizing exhaust flow increases horsepower and top end speed.
- Tuned Progressive Pitch Angles - Accelerating anc channeling water to minimize slip increases performance and fuel economy.
- Long Lasting Powder Coated Finish - 5 step process creates a durable, high quality finish that protects the aluminum from corrosion better than competitor's painted finishes.
No Faster Prop on the Water
New Four Blade Design is uniquely engineered with two blade geometries:
- 2 blades with high performance variable rake and aggressive pitch design for incredible hole hot and cornering.
- 2 blades with an offshore style design for high speed and maximum stern lift.
This combination gives you the highest performance aluminum propeller on the market. It offers all the benefits of 4-blade propellers without the usual top speed reductions common with other 4-blade designs.
The improvements at mid-range, cruising speeds offer huge gas economy advantages.
Recent tests reveal that new Hustler Aluminum Propellers have up to 46% more reverse thrust over all competitive propeller designs.
When switching from a 3-blade to the Hustler 4-blade, use the same pitch unless you need to adjust your current wide open throttle RPM.

Turning Point Hub System
Turning Point hubs feature a Lifetime Warranty. This is the only prop hub warranty in the industry.
This hub system is engineered to hold up over time without spinning, cracking or failing during normal use.
Turning Point only uses the best materials. Glass filled mylon is molded over brass splines to give you a lifetime of use.
The simple hub design eliminates failures commonly seen with multi-part "sleeve and spline" designs, and pressed-in rubber hub systems.
- Reduce Gear Shock and Engine/Drive Damage - Shock absorbing high-tech polymer cushion.
- Minimize Propeller Vibration and Chatter
- Corrosion Resistant Brass Splines and Nylon
- Ends Hub Cracking and Failure - The glass reinforced high-tech polymer construction increases flexibility, eliminating potential material stress fractures.
- Save 20-30% on Future Replacements - Lifetime warranty hub kits are designed to be reusable even after most propeller impacts.
Changing your aluminum or stainless propller is easy with Turning Point's hub system.
Each Hub's one piece design ensures simple housing replacement, making a prop change quick and easy.
Interchangeable Upgrade to Competitors Hub and Prop Systems
The Turning Point 500 Series hub kits are an interchangable upgrade for several other hub systems, including: Mercury® Flo-Torq®, Michigan Wheel® XHS® and Solas® Rubex®.
