Lowrance vs Humminbird

6 posts in this topic

Anyone have a preference over these brands? Have had a Lowrance X91 for a few years that broke and am in process of buying something new. Lowrance's seem to have bigger screens and are brighter...but something seems appealing to me about the Humminbirds.

Humminbird 343c vs. Lowrance 125 or 126df???

No one has opinions on Lowrance vs Humminbird??? Isn't like Democrat vs Republican? I'm looking at an Eagle 500C, Lowrance X510C, and Humminbird 343C.

Give me some advice on the BEST FISHFINDER FOR UNDER $400!!! ;-)

I will give you my coment, even though its not worth anything! I have a Lawrance now, its been good to me. I want a new Hummingbird 997 side imaging, but I cant afford one. So that is my opinion!

I prefer Lowrance, especially for gps but even for sonar only.

I went with a new Lowrance X510C for $370...got a good deal on a display model.... Still selling for $420+ with the ducer online... Still has a 1 yr warranty - so I'll roll the dice.

If I wanted/needed something a step up... the Humminbird 777C2 would have been a no-brainer... Pretty sweet color finder. But this was the best I could find for under $400. I don't need anything better at the current time for the lakes Im on.

Thanks.

I think for 480 vertical pixels or less they are both good. I have the 777c2 (640 vertical) pixels and would recommend it when you can afford it.

      Yeah, but this one is packed with useful information and tips, and not everyone who browses the site today saw this in 2015. It's really a great thread, and that's why I bumped it.    Wouldn't it be more sensible and more useful to the members of the site to simply edit the title and remove the "2015"?   ***How about it, mods? Rejuvinate this thread with a new title!***

      Has anyone tried out the polar bird hub houses? The floor looks like a neat concept I wonder how well it works. Looking for a small 2 man hub so I don't have to drag my huge heavy 6 man thermal hub when I go alone.

      I don't care if dnr checks me multiple times a day or I have to prove that I am not doing anything wrong. That is how they catch the guys who are doing stuff wrong. I am always legal so What do I care I have been checked what like 5-6 times in my life so far even if every time they were a bad_boy ( they were not ) who cares I have to deal with them 10-15 mins out of my day? Think about how many pricks they have to deal with every day.
