I don't have one but my buddy and I have used the Showdown and I thought it worked great...I have never used a Vexilar so I can't compare the two but I really like the Showdown.

I bought one about 3 weeks ago and really like it. I have never used a Marcum or Vex so I'm not a good source for comparison. With the Showdown I'm able to see a Waxie on a tiny jig in 30' of water. The noise rejection feature works great also. I have fished in a couple of tournaments where there were many others around using sonars and I was able to dial up the noise rejection level so that none of the others caused me any problems. Overall impression is this is an excellent product.

Jamison,

Nature Vision is the parent company. Aqua-Vu is just one of their brands.

Thanks. Just wanted to make sure that link was within our sponsor borders being that Aqua-Vu is a sponsor.

      We were using both, but the number of fish caught was definitely based on..... location, location, location - slack water during high flows is where it's at buddy.

      I remember when I first moved to MN I went down to the dam with a buncha angleworms. Coudnt keep the smallies off. LOL

      Very weird. Those little worms in the garden do catch more than little 2-4 sunfish.

      Strange indeed... Try looking for much more slack water compared to the beech you were yesterday and today. The West side of the dam was on fire this afternoon; a friend and I were in the double digits within an hour.
