Puck Transducer Question

6 posts in this topic

I just recently purchased a Zercom RTS and it comes standard with a puck transducer. Can the puck transducer be used for ice fishing or do I have to buy the iceducer from Humminbird for $90.00? If I have the iceducer is a necessity, do any of you have any leads on a better price? Thanks in advance.

You can use the puck, you just have to make sure that it is straight.

Yep make sure its level. Get a bubble level and glue it to the top of the ducer.

I used a Zercom Clearwater Pro for 2 yrs before I bought my FL-8. It worked great for ice fishing. All I did was get a Genz Blue box and tape my transducer to the adjustable arm on the box, then glued the bubble level on top. Any time the bubble was out of adjustment I moved the arm to get it centered again. Worked great, and the target seperation was excellent! Only problem was the puck on that model was a little large and I always had to move it when even bringing a small sunnie through the hole. What I did to remedy this is drill another hole close to the one I was fishing through and put the locator in that one. I could still see my jig fine and didn't always have to readjust. Some food for thought. Good luck with your new locator it should work fine with the standard puck.

Luckyfish,

Thanks for your tips, I am going to mount the RTS on a new Genz Box.

    • well factor in cost of living and its a wash
    • Same ol story. The Liberals cant handle defeat. Like when Gore lost and Kerry lost. They just cant handle that there are people outside of NY and California and that they own guns, drive pick ups and vote.
    • My brother-in-law is serious about his whiskey, and he usually drinks either Crown or Pendleton.  My wife has drank Windsor for years.     Can't stand the stuff myself - probably got sick from overloading on it in my younger days.  Strictly beer for me - preferably a good craft beer, but normally Grain Belt or Schell's if it's available.    
    • Their, there. I was.  Not overly excited by anything I saw. Did get to shoot the Gearhead bow and was fairly impressed. Some uniqueness to this bow, and completely reversible right to left so dealers should like that as far as reduced inventory they must carry.  And the lightest crossbow out there. The new Halon shoots extremely well but like its predecessor just too heavy for my taste.  The Bowtech Reign felt pretty good, but again nothing special.  Everyone makes a roto molded cooler, trail camera, and broadhead nowdays. Liked the cast aluminum tree stands from Rivers Edge at a better price point than others.  Hawk is making some neat treestands and accessories. Goldtip was doing a demo bending their arrows vs other brands and was quite amazing how much farther theirs would bend before breaking, and how much their arrow recovered (would not take a set) after bending vs the other brands. I might switch just because of the durability and straightness factor. Got to hold the new world record Tennessee non-typ.  That's a lot of horn.
    • Therefore, if there is no point in making a point, that makes it a moot post to make a point that there is no point. so I'd like to point out that I find this entire dialogue pointless.    Sillytown has run amuck. 
    • Ayup. They asked me to take his place, but I can't stand Rawlings.    http://www.gasmonkeygarage.com/yes-aaron-the-bearded-wonder-is-leaving-gas-monkey-garage/
    • That does look like a fun day!
