X-15MT vs. X-18C

11 posts in this topic

Well its time to bite the bullet. I have to choose between the 15MT and the x-18c. Which one would you guys suggest? The color is nice and only 100 bucks more. The x-15 has 480 horizontal pixels by 350 vertical.
The X-18 has 320horz. x 240 vert.
Which would you get if you had to choose?

When counting pixels go by how many pixels per square inch. Figure out how many square inch's the screen is and divide by total pixels. This gives you pixels per square inch.
This will give you a better idea of what resolution your getting.
The 15mt has a bigger screen so of coarse your vert and hor pixel count will be higher.
Color isn't as important to me as screen size and considering this is a gps/sounder size matters to me.

So your saying go for the extra pixels on the x-15. Seemed like all the salesmen said go for the color one. But Ive always thought that when 2 units would be this close take the extra pixels.

15mt 7" dia screen 168,000 pixals
18c 6" dia screen 76,600 pixals

Every thing else being equal except the transducer and of coarse color. Id take the 15mt because better resolution and bigger screen.

deemo, I have used the 15 for the last 2 years now and I love it it has great clarity and you can pick stuff off the bottom that you cant imagine. I doubt you can do that with the color version. you will love the 15.
my two cents

    • +1 on striker ice love mine    
    • I know of which you speak and they were full when I stopped by for my new fav Ghost Pepper beef sticks on the last weekend. Well I stopped by on the 1st-2nd and last weekend for the beef sticks! I use to cut up all my Deer until I and the wife wanted some of those more fancy brat's and sausage I just couldn't do.
    • My FXR sled jacket and bibs have the F.A.S.T Flotation Assistance system Technology in them so I get dlb duty out of the suit sledding and Ice fishing. Right now Cab's up in Rogers has the FXR outdoor suits but they aren't cheap. Love mine.    
    • Those look Great. Most of the time just crock potted them to death! 
    • Glad to hear it isn't the local 172 processor people complained about last year.    I was happy to have the needed "facilities" back this year.  Set up, skinned, sliced, diced, vacuum packed and cleaned up in 3.5 hours.  No, that doesn't include the grind, but we do take that in.
    • I go to Petty Bro's in Annandale and have with about the last 8-9 Deer. They usually get it back in about 3 weeks.
    • And aren't a big fan of eating it?   I'm OK with marinating and grilling the breasts but the rest of the family aren't big fans.  And I can say I prefer duck too.   So I tried smoking the breasts - and loved it!  And now I want more!   I took the simple route since it was my first try.  I picked up some High Mountain game bird and poultry brine and let em brine for two days chilled.   I put them on my smoker grill with the coals in the side fire box.  4 handfuls of wet mesquite chips during the 2.5 hour smoke at about 250 degrees.  I brushed with olive oil and teriyaki marinade to finish.  Pink and tender throughout, not jerked dry and tough.  Phenomenal.     I ate the last one yesterday on the deer stand.  After pulling the tenderloin off for the chefs treat, I just slice it thin against the grain.     Give it a try if you feel like the only things to do with geese are to grind em up.
    • So what do you propose we cut in order to offset that grand per job subsidy? Please be specific.   Do you propose doing the same for competing companies or do you like to play favorites?
