Which Humminbird Should I Buy?

2 posts in this topic

I'm looking at buying a new Humminbird sonar/GPS combo and I am just wondering what is the best one for my money. I like the looks of the 900 series but I'm not sure if the side imaging or the 3-D sonar are worth the extra bucks or if I should go with the regualar 2-D sonar. You guys have any suggestions or comments?

I bought the 737 last year that has sonar only and is a color unit. I tested the color versus black and white and the color is much better. It blows Lowrance away as far as target separation. I could see the separation between two quarter ounce jigs that were 3 inches apart in 30 feet of water. That's what 640 vertical pixels will do. I also got the side view transducer that looks out to each side but doesn't give the 3D image like the side imaging units do. There's a big difference in $ when going up to the side imaging. The gps combos use Magellan gps so you couldn't use Lakemaster chips but I think, but am not sure, that there are contour software available for them. Maybe Navionics.

      Ha!  Me too!  My father bought that last winter and was first voyage on ice. First ice on Leech was rough and those side by sides don't absorb all that well. . Still a good time.

      For holiday gift ideas, consider a locally made gift created from trees harvested in Minnesota. Wooden toys, handcrafts and keepsakes are a great green gift option. Wood is a renewable resource that is natural, nontoxic and eco-friendly.   “Wood products are great green gifts for both kids and adults,” said Kristen Bergstrand, DNR utilization and marketing program coordinator. “Uniquely hand-crafted and individually customized wooden gifts are a wonderful option for a person who has everything.” Wooden blocks, rocking chairs or horses, puzzles, rattles, picture frames and artisan bowls or wood crafts are unique items that are often passed down to future generations as family mementos. Thousands of items are made from wood harvested in Minnesota forests. About 30 percent of the state’s wood fiber comes from state forest lands. The Minnesota forest products industry brings $16.1 billion to local economies. The industry creates jobs and brings financial support to small and large manufacturing and retail businesses across the state. Making products from trees often requires less processing and energy than plastic or other products. Wood is also renewable and reusable. Most wood products can be recycled and wood waste can be converted into green energy as biomass. Well-managed forests grow back into a forest after harvesting. And buying wood products also helps the environment. Trees absorb carbon dioxide, a greenhouse gas that causes global climate change, and store carbon in their wood. Locally made products from trees harvested in Minnesota use less fossil fuel for transportation than imported goods. Visit the DNR wood products webpage to learn more about the benefits of buying and using wood products. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.
