Lowrance X-125 - or make the jump to color?

5 posts in this topic

I'm looking at getting a new graph with more power and more definition than what I have - I will mount it on the console. I've been looking at the X125 - and it seems to have what I want....just wondering what advantages I would get out of going color (say a X102C?) Is it easier to pick out transitions or anything other than just pretty to look at and impress your fishing buddies?

Also - seems like most places are listing the X125 at $299 - anyone seen any deals lately?

Thanks,

Dan

Do a Google search for X-125 you find places selling it from $200 to $299. And check out Jollyannmarine he will match prices and no tax or shipping that is were I got mine.

I just picked up a color globalmap and the main difference I've noticed is that you can see the screen from further away, and from more of an angle. It really works great if you run a tiller. Hope this helps

I have the x102c and you can tell much better the thermocline, rocks/structure, fish, and baitfish. Moreso than a B&W.

      Thanks. So it hasn't changed much then. Still might go give it a whirl!

      If you haven't read it yet, a couple of slobs are about to ruin it for the rest of us. Pick up your garbage and respect private property. The land owners who allow access to the lower sucker river are about to shut it down because they are so fed up with it. http://minnesotasteelheader.blogspot.com

      With the wind being fairly strong today I opted to hit the back waters of Little Rock. Have done goid there in yrs past.... so I figured it would be worth a shot. Finding crappies was pretty easy, they were holding tight to the brush and downed trees. Finding crappies over 8inches was tough...lol.  I don't think I broke 9inches. But did manage one big carp. Guessing right around 30in, pulled me and the yak all over the lake before I got it boat side

      Hit the one down by Watkins a couple times this winter. There were a lot of people that fished it this last winter. Got gills and crappies of all different sizes. If your looking for keeper size fish, other area lakes will provide better numbers. Haven't been on the other one of  in a few yrs. There were good numbers of 6-7in sunfish if I remember right.

      Looking to get a different depth finder for my boat, one with GPS and side imaging. I have $650 to spend, and have found a new Helix 7 SI and a used 998c SI HD with about 800 hours on it.  They both are $600.  Which one would you get and why?   Thanks!
