Replace the old through hull transducer or Not?

3 posts in this topic

Hi Guys, Im getting a new Lowrance 520C and I am wandering if I should get a new through hull transducer puck with it. I currently have some 01 model pinpoints in the boat and they already have the transducer pucks installed in the hull. It sure would save me alot of time and a little cash if I could keep the old ones installed and just buy the 520C with GPS puck and no transducer puck.

Does anyone have any thoughts on this? How far has transducer technology come in the last 6 years? Is it really worth replacing the puck?

Let me know what you guys thing and hopefully others will find this helpfull too.

-Andy

Will the 520c even accept the other transducers?

      I scored a set of Striker Hardwaters for 25% off   bibs+coat. I fish early ice alone, decided to pull the trigger on a warm suit that can float if I end up breaking thru.  That crowd was insane. Happy to see the big turnout. All of the TV dudes were roaming around too, talking with ppl and taking pics. Had a great time and I'm happy to see how big the ice fishing community is getting. Just stay away from my holes!!!     jk. Looks like we could be gaining up to an inch of ice/day in metro lakes if this forecast holds.

      That ion x does look sweet! Not sure if I can justify the switch from my current ion... what was your out the door cost?

      I was thinking the same thoughts, I saw the pond by my house locked up, figure someone will be sitting in front of the courthouse before you know it..

      I have to add that my buddy has had the Eskimo propane auger and loves it, he has a season and half using it and it hasn't given him any problems.

      I've had an Eskimo Shark for a few years and I love it, I'm not a fan of the aluminum handles on it, they have given me an issue or two but customer service is outstanding. Can't comment on the EVO, other than  I think they are gimmicky, but I love their six sided insulated hub. Works great for my family trips or just going out by myself. Sets up easy and there is a ton of room.
