Best graph for the money


Scoot

Question

What's the best lcd graph for the money? I've got a buddy who'd like to spend between $150 and $400- a pretty big range. But what would people suggest? If he can get a unit for $200 that would do all he needs, he doesn't want to spend the extra money.
He'll be fishing primarily walleyes between 15 and 35 feet. Mostly rigging and jigging.
I'm a pretty big fan of Lowrance and Eagle, but maybe I'm missing out by not recommending something else to him. Suggestions???
Thanks guys,
Scoot

Garmin 240 is a nice one, cheap too. I believe around 3 bills. It has a fine resolution,built in flasher,sensitive enough to pick up thermoclines, youll even see your jig under the boat in deep water. Other brands with the same specs are much more expensive, upwards to a couple hundred more. Garmin does great warranty work if you should ever need.

I can vouch that the Eagle Fishmark 320 is an outstanding unit for the $$$$. The unit is so sensitive that if you jig under the cone of the transducer, you're able to see it on your graph.

The Vexilar Edge goes for about $600.00 if I am looking at the correct model.

The Fishmark has 320x320 pixel display. That is better definition than the Garmin 240.

It does well on sunny days and is easy to operate.

I would buy another one , I have not field tested the other models listed but at the
320 came highly recomended by the people I spoke with at Cabelas . ( compared to others in the same price range).

I would imagine that both have a demo mode if you have a local sports store run them side by side in simulation mode !

I have the fishmark 320 also, and it IS a good unit for only $200, but after researching the Vex. edge, I am going to save my dollrs over the winter, I love the dual transducer option and it will be neat to get a side view of structure., but, while were at it, how does the Garmin 240 stack up to it?
thanks

Scoot,

I have to agree with Can-it-be-luck, the Garmin 240 is an exceelent choice for the money. I've had one for a couple years now and absolutely love it. I also use it for ice fishing, the built in flasher works great through the ice! Just my $.02

How about a Lowrance X-97. 3000 watts of power, 320 by 320 pixels. Great bottom read for those eyes.

The best bang for the buck for a sounder under $200 now is the Fishmark 320. If you asked me the same question last year I'd say the Garmin 240.
If your budget is for a $600 unit then thats a whole new ball game so lets keep it in perspective. Both units will show you a 32 oz jig in FOW easy, thats not new technology. Theres been units for the past 2 decades that will do the same thing. Resolution and pixel count has gone up with the LCR's but folks using paper graphs and videos have had the benefits of high definition and power(watts)for years.

      Every year more and more people come to IT because it is really the technology of the future, but still it is worth knowing what is in demand now, you can find it in this article https://computools.com/automotive-retail/ the sphere is described in great detail and why you need to be a software engineer!

      Hello!)  I love playing minecraft.  From early childhood, I understood that this is just the best game, but the game became unrealistic after I installed the super mod https://99minecraft.com/mods/weee-flowers-mod-1-12-2-1-7-10/  !!!!! It will help everyone to make the game more interesting and cool.

      It seems that I have never had problems writing essays. And here it was necessary to write residency personal statement editing. I realized that it would not be possible to cope with such a document, I decided to take the help of professionals and all the problems disappeared.

      Yes, you can make good money at the casino, but I think that this is unstable earnings, and situational, if you play every day, you can get into very large debts. I was advised this casino - https://onlinecasinospill.no/ , I tried and made no mistake in choosing, there is a huge bonus system, constant promotions for any holidays and a bunch of different slots that only improve the game, also the probability of winning is quite high, I was able to earn a small amount of money, I advise you to try

      Филипп 9:29 In order to avoid unplanned expenses, you need to immediately discuss all the nuances with the contractor. In fact, there are many options. But it still seems to me that it can be done independently, even bulky things with several people can be loaded and moved on by themselves

      I agree with you, but not completely, because you can win once and bet a little more, that is, set aside 80% of the total amount, and then play for the remaining 20%, I think this is a good option, and in any case, a person will win

      As far as I know, there are several companies in Boston that are engaged in full professional relocation, it takes a little time, but they take enough money, I saw a couple of ads on the Internet about such work, you can also find performers of this order there

      For a long time I wanted to turn to a good programmer so that he would collect applications for mining for me, but I could not find it and abandoned this business, now this thought is returning. I came up with such an application that no one has, but no one can assemble it, everyone refuses. I looked at the site that you advise, quickly read it, this company made a good impression on me, I will carefully read it in the evening, then I will contact them and if they agree with my idea, I will order.
