Sounder Technology state of play ~ for real ?

Post by hornet » Thu Aug 15, 2019 9:27 am

I've been out of the boating scene for some time, I recently purchased a boat and looking at sounders, Has sounder technology progressed this far ?
Is this just spin or the real thing ?

I hate buying magic beans only to find out I'll be dissapointed...

i was waiting for someone to reply about the price :rofl: :rofl:

i did post a reply here but looks like it disappeared into cyberspace..
anyway these newer units are even harder to setup and read than the sidescan and downscan units.
let the bass fisherman worry about it, best bet for the average fisherman is the HDS live and equivalent garmin units or the units below them.
Small Fish Specialist :-D :-D :-D

The boat and where you are going to FUSH -You only need a unit that tells you-GPS Data and Depth -All the other stuff is Crap-Same as Braid and Coloured Lures
Ive got the GARMIN 551s -A Cheapo but it helps me catch the FUSH
