New hook2 series

Question

derbier122x

Anyone have a chance to play with these yet? I'm thinking of getting one to add a second unit to my boat. I have a hook 5 already and it is decent for what I use it for.

Also, if I stay with just the original hook series, anyone know if there is a way to make a copy of the lake chip?

No way to copy chip.  Look for a package that includes a chip.   Some have built in map data.   Price on hook2 is really good.  Looks like the war is on. 

The triple shot 7 inch for 399 is an amazing price.   Or they add the data for 200 more which seems like a lot.

I just ordered the triple shot 7. Looks like a nice simple unit for a great price!

I am interested in your opinion of the unit, and whatever mapping you get for it.   I would really be tempted to upgrade my few year old hdi 7 elite or whatever it is.

Del,

From what I understand the hook is the upgrade from the Elite series. (which I also have and like).

The Triple Shot has side scan added though. Not sure how useful that will be on Vermilion but some of the guides say they like it.

I've been wondering for a while about the side scan thing.   I hope it will work for you , and am looking forward to hearing your reports, even from the east end...;)

 I'll probably be picking up a Hook 7 Triple Shot as well for one of the boats.   Mapping prices seem out of line with the proprietary  garbage going on.

Thanks for the info. I haven't checked back in a while. Life has been hectic.

      Charge your battery after every use. Your not getting enough charging when not running big motor enough. Other option is to move up a size in battery if room. I have ran Interstates for years with no issues.

      Hi - this may not be the exact best spot for this, but

      1). I flyfish, elk and deer hunt out of my simple, clean off grid cabin 11 m S of Ennis.
      Excellent elk, muley, whitetail, and pronghorn opportunities, E slope of Gravelly range. 2 m N of current Wigwam fire - no problem.I have more time than hunting partners and need solid, easy going buddies to hunt with, and or will time share swap with others for access to great hunting.

      2) I have 230+ acres of outstanding pheasant, whitetail, waterfowl, and some turkey just E of Granite Falls MN. If you are local and have bear, deer, turkey, etc., opportunities, especially closer to the Metro, Let's Talk. This land is also for sale, I'm tightening up my footprint and want to build on my Bozeman lot on the Gallatin.

      I am very interested in:
      - whitetail tree stand, including doe management opportunities (especially local for me in zone 610 MN) - gotta fill the freezer!
      - spot and stalk anything anywhere
      - turkey
      - winter southern or warm weather opportunities, including fly fishing..pigs?

      I'll give the noise supressor a try Bob.  Both units were purchased at the same time.    yoppdk- I checked my unit and I don't see any such setting on the 998.  There is a low battery alarm setting, but that is already turned to off.

      This terminal could have been comprised, cracked or corroded to cause this.

      Geese are beginning to flock as I seen a number flying over the past couple days.
