I love mine yet and use it in the winter exclusively. They are very easy on batteries and I have not ever had an issue with mine. They lack the color indicators but the grayscale changes as fish get closer. I have been looking at Marcum, but am worried about the battery life issue with all the power thay send down. Clearwater's downfall is the target separation (I always look for the "happy bottom" on mine when fish are tight to the bottom)

If you don't want it - send it to me. I bought two off of [YouNeedAuthorization] last year - one for me and another for my son. They are still a very good ice fishing rig.

I used one for years and Years. The only reason I changed was because I started fishing water that was deeper than the 80ft max depth available.

Yah, they work fine. I used one until I sold it on "the bay". The main unit doesn't really ever go bad, but check the bottom of the transducer (puck on the cord) - if it is pitted or scratched up, take a pass, you will just get frustrated, cause it will never work good, and you can't find a new transducer for it.

    • First off, the comment I made which you replied to with a hypothesis never stated that there was proof they did anything wrong. I merely and accurately stated that there was a chance they did some of the same things and it appears that may be the case.   You said plainly that VW could have chosen the Daimler tech but chose not to. In the end doing so may very well have found them in the same boat.    
    • Haula is probably going to see a lot of playing time so I don't doubt he will have some nice years, kind of like how Brodziak scored 20 playing as our first line center. I like Schroeder as first call up or emergency player but he just can't consistently bring it in the NHL, that is no crime because when he gets hot he is fun to watch but he just can't stay there. 
    • That's some good info, Thanks.
    •   I think they're shut down, too.  Smells like no money and more welfare...    
    •   Not sure if their still producing cardboard up at that plant anymore?
    • Now Haula and Tuch will have career seasons next year.  Haula is the odds on favorite to win the Ross trophy and Tuch should have a couple Norris' in the next 5 years.     Sounds like Wild might not bring Schroeder back either.  I really hope they are contenders for a strong center or a really nice goal scorer.  
    • Good point about the center support.  I wandered out to my ground blind on one of the last days of archery season to find the roof caved in and two poles busted. 
    • MMmmm Cloquet....   Smells like money.
    • I am a little concerned with it fading but it needs to be left up for the deer to get accustomed to it so no way around that.   I assume the sun is the main culprit in fading so I'll do my best to protect against that.  One spot I'm considering is tucked into some pines which create a lot of shade, brushing it in heavily should also help keep it out of direct sun as well.   Good point about a center support to help with the snow.  I'll make sure to add something.
    • interesting? oh its raining here too!!!!!!!!!!!
