I'm guessing you refering to single beam or dual beam transducers?

not to state the obvious but I think this is what you are looking for?? The 12 degree is what it is and the 9/19 degree is both 9 degree for deeper water or what ever you prefer and the other is the 19 degree which can be viewed by flipping a switch. Hope that helps!!

in deep water you can go to the 9 degree so you dont pick up your buddies lure on your screen and also be more accurate when fish are under you because the cone isnt as big. In shallow water you can increase your view with the 19 degree. Thats about it

thanks for the info, ive always just had the 12 degree and couldnt figure out why everyone was asking what degree ducer i had, as far as deeper water picking up neighbor bait i could see that being an advantage though.all i know is they all work.

      then I will need to buy the bigger dewalt batteries. they look spendy.  I have 7 ryobi batteries now. 2 are the 4 amp.    600 pounds should be plenty  from what all are saying. I can take the 2 , 4 amps back and grab the dewalt. hmmmmmm, decisions desicions. lol

      Making sure all equipment is in working order is one thing I always try to take care of before taking my first trip of the season. Nothing is quite as frustrating as a flasher with a dead battery or an auger that wont start.  I have always been a big believer having the proper equipment with to stay safe come first ice.... These items include a spud bar to check ice thickness, a section of rope,  a life jacket and a set of ice picks. Having a second person with is also a smart move when the ice is thin. Talking to those "in the know" about local bodies of water and current ice conditions is also a good thing to do.  Remember, first ice is usally not a consistant thickness, so use caution...and trust your gut...if something feels not right, it usally isn't. Good luck and stay safe, my friends :-)
