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.

      A little damp (icy) and chilly this morning.   Had absolutely no gobbling ON the roost this morning.  Strange.   About 7am I had 3 birds gobbling close, behind the blind.  They went back and forth sometime before slinking off the SE.  Now all is quite and cold.   Giving them till 10 then off to work.

      I'll be out this wknd and got 3 spots to try out so still debating which one will be the ticket. The past couple weeks I've been getting some while crappie fishing.  Going to be shore fishing so FYI the water level is pretty high right now with all the rain from few weeks ago. A wader would be handy if you have one.  Good luck n be safe out there.

      Found a half dozen good size crappies on Clear Lake in Waseca Sunday.  Just off the bottom in 8 feet of water, minnows under bobbers.  Water temp was 58 on the east side of the lake, which was a full degree above the rest of the lake.

      yepper, almost 30 between the 2 of us in the slack water next to fast water. kinda hard to fish in that fast water when it's moving so fast...
