That would be the output power to your transducer.

basically, the more power you have the better you can "pick" apart the bottom content and it also determines the max depth you can read the bottom clearly. the more power - the deeper you can mark fish and structure - most lakes around hear are shallow enough for any finder.

So basically, the higher the power the more seperation you get between fish and the bottom. and more detail?

Not necessarily. Your receiver has a lot to do with along with a lot of other factors. Theres sounders out there that are 30 years old with 3000 watts and the separation isn't as good. Its combining that power with new technology that gives you that finer separation.
Generally more watts = more penetration.

The 200 kHz transducer will have a tighter cone with much higher definition and your best choice in water under 500 ft.
The 50 kHz will penetrate deep water better, has a wider cone but not very good definition. You would use the kHz more for searching for targets then switch to the kHz for a refined look.
Considering the depths were talking here you wouldn't really need the dual frequency transducer.

If you have the money to be looking at the 18 vs the 19, go with the 19. The 19 has twice the deffinition the 18 has. lcx-18c has 320x240 tft and the lcx 19c has 640x480 tft.

When talking the ultra high end as you are, you have to go with the 19. Getting the 18 would be like buying a mercedes and asking for it with out airconditioning.

How much do you fish?? Do you do tournaments?? Unless you are on the water 60+ days I would honestly steer you towards the lcx-15, half the money and all the bells and whistles. I have used this one and am very pleased with it. I would like to have a 19 someday, have to win a big tournament for that though.

no tourneys but fish more than just a passtime, that lcx15 is basically the same unit in w/o color , ya i like that unit too,, figured when the color units came out the better deals would be units like the 15,,thats a good option too,but i do like the detail on that color unit.

      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.
