Lowrance X91 OR Garmin Fishfinder 240?

5 posts in this topic

I am considering getting the Lowrance X91 or Garmin 240. I know the Garmin is a little cheaper....but which one is the better unit? How many of you guys have either of these? Any suggestions?

Personally, I would skip the X-91 and buy the new model which is probably still cheaper. The X-91 and X-97 are overkill unless you are fising in the Ocean and need to display depths at 1000 feet. Not too many fisherman need this. The X-87 is much cheaper this year and has all the same features of last years.

Now with that said, I would again save another $90 and buy the Eagle FishMark 320. It is the exact same unit as the Lowrance X-87. Comes out of the same factory, just different color and logo. This unit is quite a bit cheaper than either of the ones you mentioned and I would recommend it.

Just my .02. I have heard good things about Garmin as well. Can't go wrong with any of these units. Just depends on budget and what you are looking for.

There is one difference in the x87 to the Fish Mark 320 it is that the X87 has a fast track flasher mode which the Fish Mark doesn't have that but it does have the Fast track bar on the edge of the screen which both units have. For the price and what you get I think that the Fish Mark is the better unit. Also something to consider is that the Garmin Unit you are looking at has 240x240 pixels as compared to the x87 and Fish Mark 320 which have 320x320. More pixels better picture. Good luck with the decision.

I ended up getting the X-91 for $300 at Cabelas. The Garmin and Eagle both looked good...but I just felt a little for comfortable with the Lowrance. Thanks for the help.

    • You almost need to put a guy in his face and play the rest of the PK 4 on 3.
    • About time!!! Stalock on his way up...hope they play him soon.
    •   Tiger meat on a cracker is delicious.    Yes, "may". I don't have a link to his page and I haven't been to it in years so I have no idea.I'll admit that I'm more than likely wrong and just jaded from years of working in internet marketing but I'm not gullible enough to take the word of random internet peeps. Do you have a link to his page so I can verify?
    • Also check out "straw bale gardening".  
    •   My folks liked them.  The Hubbards are large and the flesh is quite thick.   Plants in late april is jumping the gun.  Liable to freeze, even with global warming.   reasonable chance of frost there until middle of may.  You want the dirt to be warm, so think of them like tomatoes or cucumbers.   seeds rot in cold soil.    frost kills plants
    • Speaking of desperate snowflakes...... check this out.   Can't wait for the hearings on Cspan.... Legogate.   Or maybe batgate....   (no I have no idea of the credibility of "heatstreet" so read at your own risk) (owned by dow jones, so part of the mainstream media at least sort of) https://heatst.com/politics/democrats-to-investigate-after-trump-official-makes-lego-batman-joke/  
    •   I doubt it.  Its hard to go back and even if you did most of the damage has already been done.  Besides it would be admitting failure, not many people like to do that and I've seen no evidence that ownership believes it did fail  Perhaps to them it didn't, with 2 sites they might be taking in more money now due to more ad spots to sell.  Although the question is longevity, do ad dollars start to suffer as users leave and content dwindles?  For awhile its not hard to pump up the stats and make the site look good to advertisers with number of visits and page views, etc.  However, if an advertiser looked at the site for themselves its easy to see all the sub forums that haven't had a new post in months or that most of the views and clicks are coming from threads with Trump in the title.   Forums as a whole are also LONG past their prime and are quickly fading out.  Facebook groups and other social media are taking over.  Why log into many different forums when you can simply log in to facebook and have everything right there along with all of your real world connections?  Advertisers are likely to be focusing more of their ad dollars on the platform as time goes by.

    • The pipeline being built is a good thing. Gutting regulation for the sake of gutting regulation is stupid - and that seems to be his tactic. Some regulations are necessary. The "illegal flow" had been declining for years; attributing the continuation of that arc to Trump isn't really sensible.
