Give weeds the chop with Safari's trolling prop
This new prop stops fishermen from getting caught in the best spots
Fishermen have always had a love-hate relationship with aquatic vegetation. They love the fish that the plants attract but they hate getting their trolling motor stuck in the weeds.
The new MotorGuide Safari weedless propeller from MotorGuide is designed to deliver weed-free performance and open-water power. Developed by the Mercury Propeller Division, Safari is an efficient two-blade prop built on a tapered-hub design that leaves no gap between prop and housing. That means weeds keep moving toward the business end of the lower unit where the blades cut them and throw them clear.
The prop is made from durable glass-filled nylon so it can endure run-ins with stumps and rocks hidden among the vegetation.
The Safari weedless prop has undergone comprehensive testing by experts in the United States.
Terry Scroggins, a five-time BASS winner, was full of praise for the new prop. "MotorGuide and Mercury really did their work on this one," he said. "While we’ve had "weedless" props before, Safari has taken the concept to a whole new leve.
"Without a doubt, this is the quietest and most weed-free design on the market, and this prop is already making my fishing life a whole lot better."
Fellow fishing pro Gene Bucholtz has also been using the Safari among the nastiest growth of the California Delta. "I’m a believer," he said. "Safari has already changed the way I fish my favourite spots, getting me in and out of tough spots quicker and giving me more quality fishing time."
Safari fits virtually all MotorGuide trolling motors and has a RRP of just $44.
