Need help on getting new fishfinder
« on: December 30, 2007, 01:06:15 PM »

Look to put a new finder in my 14 foot boat, i use it for all types of fishing, and some small tourneys.  So i'm looking at staying in that $200 or below range.  I was looking at the humminbird 500 series and the piranha series, or Lowrance X86.  Any input would be helpful.  Thanks

I have an Eagle fishmark 320.  For the money, it's not bad.
I like the looks of the Humminbird gps/sonar combos though too.
So much water.  So many lures.  So little time.

I have a Hummingbird 565.  It has the most vertical pixels than any other fishfinder that I know of on the market with 640.  That is the highest resolution, however you want to also get as many watts peak as you can also.  I am very pleased with this unit.  I used it for a whole season and am considering now putting the same unit on the helm.  Good luck.

You cant go wrong with a humminbird, They have come along way in the last few years. I have two on my boat and I cant say enough good things about them. My son has the lower end unit on his little boat, I think its the 565 and it is crystal clear with great contrast. Its a great depth finder for under $200.
When you are in any contest you should work as if there whereto the very last minute a chance to loose it.
