Humminbird 300dx

6 posts in this topic

I was thinking of buying a Humminbird 300 TX and was wondering if anyone else has this unit or knows someone who has. Any comments would help a lot. Thanks

You mean the TX? Is the tribeam what you want? At least go up to the 400tx. Or go with the Eagle Trifinder 2. If you dont want the tri ducer spend a little more and get something a lot better. I would recomend the Garmin 240 as a good mid price range sonor.

Yeah I mean the TX. I was getting my letters messed up. I dont know that much about finders for the boat. Not sure what to look for in a finder. I have a vex for ice fishing and that is really easy to run. What is the difference between the tri ducer and a different ducer. I am not gonna spend a lot of money on my first finder. Planning on getting a different boat in a couple years and will get a good finder then. I mainly want one now to see depth. I was hoping stay under $200. I'm not a hardcore fisherman. And with my wife having our first baby this summer, I probably wont get out a lot after she has it. Thanks for any help.

I bought a Humminbird 300tx 2 yrs ago. It seems to work for what i need it to do. I also got the speed/temp sensor also. I saw at Galyans they are on clearance for $179 in Bloomington. I don't remember how much I paid for it but it seems like a good price. I hope this little info helps.

I would highly recommend the Lowrance X-51 which run just under $200 and has a lot better resolution and more power. It comes standard with temp and a flasher mode. A speed sensor is also available.

Thanks for the input. Satchmo, I will look at those X-51. They look pretty nice and it is keeping me under 200 dollars. I am gonna be going to Cabelas in SD during Easter and will probably decide then. The resaon I was looking at the humminbird is because it seems to be able to do what I need in a depth finder. There is also a rebate on it and you get a nice soft sided tackle box with it. Any more input out there I would love to hear it. Thanks

    • Sounds like the Preds and Pens were also hot after him so we won the bidding war, that would explain the price. We might end up facing the Preds in the first round so better we have him than them. Don't know much about Hanzel but from what I am reading he is big, good face off & pk guy and contributes a little offence. Maybe not a huge upgrade over Haula but having him on the 4th could be huge for us if him and Stewart can get something going. White looks kind of like a depth 4th liner so there is that as well. Should be a fun rest of the season, always fun to get new toys around March even if they haven't worked out in the past.

    •    I think they do as good of a job as to be expected. Pills are highly regulated. International web deliveries and dirty doctors are a little tricky to weed out.      Nope, we'll use your logic and decriminalize driving under the influence.   Problem solved.   Should eradicate fatalities of those types as since it is legal, it no longer appeals to folks, they stop doing it.     Explain in detail, in a country, filled with people who love over consumption, that consume 80% of the drugs on the entire planet, how that would work.   Start stuttering.     That's about right. One word in depth answers.   On an idea that will not work in this country.   "I think we can learn that we should stop being reflexively opposed when someone else does [decriminalize] and should take seriously the possibility that anti-user enforcement isn't having much influence on our drug consumption," says Mark Kleiman, author of the forthcoming When Brute Force Fails: How to Have Less Crime and Less Punishment and director of the drug policy analysis program at UCLA. Kleiman does not consider Portugal a realistic model for the U.S., however, because of differences in size and culture between the two countries.   http://content.time.com/time/health/article/0,8599,1893946,00.html        It's your idea, you explain it and sell it.   You lazy fraud.
    • Wowza, I guess we are going for, no better year I suppose. We are now crazy deep at center and that is a good good thing, hopefully the new guys can mesh with the lineup right away.
    • So much fun to watch the media just lose all credibility, I suspect there will be more fun to come.

    • I think he means keep the prisons full and the private prison industry in money at all costs. Welcome to the wonderful world of donor $$$ "trumping" common sense. Nothing like buying laws so you can profit, not that this is anything new.
