Lowrance vs. Eagle

3 posts in this topic

As I was researching getting a new sonar/graph, I came to find out that Eagle and Lowrance come out of the same factory.

I started to dig into their models and came to find out that the Lowrance X-75 and the Eagle Accura 240 are listed with the EXACT specifications and warranty. The cases are even identical. However, the prices of the units vary by over $100.

Does anyone know of any differences? I can't find one. The only thing appears to be that Lowrance has better brand recognition, but since it is the same company, I am not sure what to think.

Price and maybe another bell or whistle.
I started with the "green box" on Leech Lake and a half dozen Lowrance. My last two have been Eagle. My current EagleMagna Plus is ten years old and still kicking.
I look at new one's from time to time, but they don't offer anymore then what I already have.
Go Eagle and go buy a new rod or reel with what you save.

There are two differences between the X-75 and the Accura 240, The x-75 is able to use the 50khz transducer and it has full screen backlighting vs sidbar lighting on the 240.
Other than that they are the same.

    • First off, the comment I made which you replied to with a hypothesis never stated that there was proof they did anything wrong. I merely and accurately stated that there was a chance they did some of the same things and it appears that may be the case.   You said plainly that VW could have chosen the Daimler tech but chose not to. In the end doing so may very well have found them in the same boat.    
    • Haula is probably going to see a lot of playing time so I don't doubt he will have some nice years, kind of like how Brodziak scored 20 playing as our first line center. I like Schroeder as first call up or emergency player but he just can't consistently bring it in the NHL, that is no crime because when he gets hot he is fun to watch but he just can't stay there. 
    • That's some good info, Thanks.
    •   I think they're shut down, too.  Smells like no money and more welfare...    
    •   Not sure if their still producing cardboard up at that plant anymore?
    • Now Haula and Tuch will have career seasons next year.  Haula is the odds on favorite to win the Ross trophy and Tuch should have a couple Norris' in the next 5 years.     Sounds like Wild might not bring Schroeder back either.  I really hope they are contenders for a strong center or a really nice goal scorer.  
    • Good point about the center support.  I wandered out to my ground blind on one of the last days of archery season to find the roof caved in and two poles busted. 
    • MMmmm Cloquet....   Smells like money.
    • I am a little concerned with it fading but it needs to be left up for the deer to get accustomed to it so no way around that.   I assume the sun is the main culprit in fading so I'll do my best to protect against that.  One spot I'm considering is tucked into some pines which create a lot of shade, brushing it in heavily should also help keep it out of direct sun as well.   Good point about a center support to help with the snow.  I'll make sure to add something.
    • interesting? oh its raining here too!!!!!!!!!!!
