New 150 Merc Four Stroke

Recommended Posts

I am looking for anyone that is running or has test driven the 150 4 stroke from merc This is a new moter and I am interested in any feed back I can get on this from the guys able to run south. Here in the north boats are all stored I am looking to see if this new motor is close to the 150 pro xs for torque and power hole shot etc

Thanks any help would be great

Google "Mercury 150 four stroke reviews". You'll find plenty of reading material.

Brand new motor. Might take some time for anything useful to come in. All I've heard is that it's light.

Reviews by third parties are not promos. Well, they should not be. The first result I linked on ran the motor, and gave, what seemed to me, to be fairly objective pros and cons. It's not all that different from Motor Trend or any other car magazine test driving particular makes and models, then posting their take on it. What makes their review less than true?

Reviews by owners can vary widely from five out of five to zero or one out of five on the same product. Some owners have much expertise in using a product, others have no expertise whatsoever.

As Francho said, it hasn't been on the market long enough to expect much of a response from owners since there are relatively few of them.

IMHO you left too many variables out of your post.

What type of boat would you be putting this on, how much weight for fishermen and their gear to start with. You should be able to get the torque from Merc's website. The hole shot is going to vary widely by boat, prop, and the variables. I don't think a review from somebody with a boat only 2/3's your weight is going to help.

Thank you. I tried sending the info via private message, but the links would not work when I previewed the message. Interesting, the links would have worked on the forum. I copied and pasted a couple of the results, then previewed them, and they were clickable. I'm not clear on posting links to other web sites, so I was reluctant to post them.
