Fish Finders, Now or Later?

6 posts in this topic

Is this the best time of the year to by fish finders? If not, when is? I am currently looking at the Lowrance X91, X71, 240 LMS and the Garmin 240. It is difficult to weigh advantages VS disadvantages when comparing the models. I would like to see some opinions on theses mid-priced units. And maybe some one can answer why Lowrance introduced all new models last year and are now changing all of their models this year. Did they come out with some new features or what? Doesn't it seem odd that Lowrance made the X85 for years, and now they are changing their models on a yearly basis?
Thanks,
Reefdawg

I got the Lowrance X-91 for X-Mas and it seems to be a great unit based on the research that I did. For the best price go to cabelas.com. They currently have the X-91 on sales for 299.99 and they even threw in a free RAM mount. Unfortunately, I do not know why Lowrnace is changing their models again. Good luck.

Tell me about it!!! I got my Dad a new Eagle last year for Christmas, but told him to not take it out of the plastic until the Cabela's spring catalog arrived in the mail (easiest way to discover if there's new models). Sure enough, totally redesigned models. So he sent it back to me and I exchanged it at the store for a new one. Now... I see in the spring catalog that arrived yesterday, that his 120 pixel graph has been replaced by a 320 pixel for the SAME PRICE!!! Hope my FL-18 doesn't become obsolete that fast!

Best FISHES,

Doesnt look like they are changing models. Looks like they have added to their line. The X-97 is a 320x320 pixel with 3,200 watts compared to the x-91 at 240x240 pixels.

By the way, Reeds has the LMS-240 with GPS for 399.99 right now. Great unit, my buddy paid $539.99 for his at Cabelas last summer.

    • My buddy found this today! Great day to be out! future booner!
    • He only got one? Had 3 more in my pocket!!; I didn't want them in cold spring!
    •   http://thehill.com/blogs/blog-briefing-room/news/320316-trump-clarifies-remarks-on-nonexistent-sweden-incident-i-got-it   Nah, he just got it from Fox News. Where else would he be able to get accurate information about what is happening in the world?  
    • I have those on my 2 place trailer. Also have a set of plastic ski skins to go under skis but havnt tried them yet.
    • Hard not to look in the mirror and admit our meddling all over the world over the past 60 years has brought us nothing but trouble. You can shift blame to some radical religion if you want, plenty of blame there too but why force ourselves to step on that hornets nest in the first place when we didn't have to. But hey we are masters of destabilizing and regime changes and I don't think that is an accident. You can blame some religion if you want but I doubt Christians or you or I would be any different had some other country toppled our government and took over our country. Of course it is always in the name of peace and freedom, or at least that is what plays on the news.
    • https://www.nytimes.com/2017/02/19/us/politics/donald-trump-ukraine-russia.html   To summarize for those too lazy to read the article:   A Putin-backed Ukranian lawmaker, a convicted mobster that's friends with Donald Trump, and his Russian-linked personal lawyer (who's being investigated for, guess what, his links to Russia) came to Michael Flynn (fired for lying about his contacts with Russia) with a plan that would essentially gift (the illegally annexed sovereign Ukrainian territory of) Crimea to Russia, and lift all related sanctions.
    • Spent about 4hrs there today with my family and had a great time. My twin 6yr olds had a blast and came home with lots of freebies.   im not a wine and dine hunting lodge guy so many booths didn't appeal to me. But lots of good dog stuff and conservation talk.   i pet and scratched more dogs behind the  ear today than I have in my entire life. Looking forward to Sioux Falls hosting it next year.
    • From Wikipedia Nope, nothing to see here. We had nothing to do with it. No involvement at all.
