Your best angle of attack should come like this:
Do you need to control your trolling motor with your sonar? if so you have 2 choices. Lowrance uses motor guide and H-bird goes with Minnkota.
If that is not a requirement than the field is wide open.
IMO don't go with a screen smaller than 9" with side imaging there is so much detail that its hard to see on a 7" screen.
I'd stay away from garmin or any unit that doesn't have a true down scan ducer that uses software to produce a down scan image there is just too much stuff lost without it.
It's a pop or in my case an ice tea bottle with several 1/8" holes near the bottom of the bottle. I then roll up paper towels and get as many as I can stacked inside the bottle. When I need to cough I unscrew the top and cough into it. It definitely softens then noise to more of a rush of air sound.
I use the standard frogs (non-Popping) as i feel i can always pop a non-popping. I do like to throw into cover and hit those pockets and open area's ... there is times when walking it really makes a big difference on strikes. Can't wait for the season!! i was just experimenting with the frogs and not bass fishing yet. We will keep in touch and see how ya all are doing with the frogs this summer. I am intrigued also with the Zoom Horny toad, ready to try those also.
What spin is needed? We lost, this happens all the time in the playoffs, that is why they play the games. Our very own team has bounced two division leaders in the past 4 years, are we going to give them credit for those series wins or just completely focus on the negative and whine about everything. There are plenty of positives to take away from this season, really there is a ton to be excited about going forward if you don't solely focus on all thing negative.
Its a whole new world down there with SI and DI. After you learn what the picture is showing you, you'll wonder what took so long to get it
I was a Lowrance guy for years and made the switch to H'bird this year with the new Solix with Mega chirp. Very happy with it so far. Amazing clarity and images.
Swiveldigger picked up his 3rd win of the year with 342 pts. and jumped from 11th to 5th in the standings.

Back to the original reply- which one and which size?
Or, if you want to be serious then install a few of these bad boys. I call it the Mother Of All Backups or MOAB for short.
