Lowrance elite 4HDI or humminbird 398

Postby Teacherman » Tue Oct 07, 2014 6:43 pm

Hi all. After some advice re sounder selection for my new OK scrambler 11. Will be primarily used in estuary for flatties, bream etc and inshore reef hoping for a snapper...

Lowrance 4Hdi
Pros- I have a 7chirp in the stink boat
Cheaper
Can fit to ram bar easily
Sell at my local
Cons- May have to mount through hull, thus potential to lose down scan resolution

Humminbird
Pros- Side scan!
Transducer should fit the ocean kayak transducer scupper- which is then exposed to the outside world.

Price is an issue- but not the be all and end all.

Both will do sounder/ down scan/ chart plotter.

Any advice or opinions (with explanation) gratefully read.
What we know is a drop, what we don't know is an ocean...
