X-15

Recommended Posts

Guest

I am looking ot put a new Depth finder on my boat. Right now I plan to put a FL-8 on the trolling motor. A Clearwater Classic on the Back and a X-15 on the back as well Does this sound like a good deal. What is another option if I can't Put $700 togather for a X-15. Any help would be appreciated.

Get the x-15 if you can. Just remember you wont be able to run any of them together at the same time since the x-15 has gone to a 200khz ducer. I havent been able to test the IR on a vex to see if it knocks the interference out on the x-15. If you cant get the x-15 and want to keep the flashers, go with the x-91

Mr. Pimp,
Yes the x-15 is a very good locator, but it really does depend on what you really need. I was recently out looking for locators also, and I found that there are so many unnecessary options for me. For instance, 3000 watts is a lot of power that would go to waste for me. The digital recording and memory cards would never get used. I already have a GPS, So I wouldn't need that or any of the software that comes with it. So, for a fisher of a degree that I am, I find the X-71, to be a perfect fit. It has 1500 watts, which is plenty! It also has the fastrack full screeen LCD flasher. All of the features that I listed above for the x15 are the ones that you're paying the extra 300 bucks. You just gotta ask yourself what you really need. Matt

The higher the watts, the better the unit will display an arch. If your fish waters 15 feet or more and seeing bottom transition and fish is important to you, buy the most watts and pixels you can afford. I dont agree to look for a unit that fits your needs but rather a unit that works for your needs. No attacks here ,just my two cents. You can also just get the x-15 unit for $699.00 without the GPS

No, the Vex's run on 200khz. Not sure about the Zercom. The new Lowrance's run on 200. They do make a deep water combo ducer for the Lowrance that runs on 50khz but it for deepwater(over 100 feet) only. I have a LMS-350a for sale with the GPS module for $500.It was bought new last year. Retailed for $800. It runs on 192khz and would work perfect with your flashers.

Thanks For the Tips. I'm kinda new to this Advanced walleye stuff.
This is probably a dumb question but are there different transducers that will not interfere with each other? I would like to have both of them running at the same time so my partner knows what is going on.

Best deals I find are usualy at Reeds in Walker... Checkem out if your in the area or they have a web cite.. dont know it off hand. Seriously, not pimping the store for anyone. Hell I have only fished Leech twice in my life.

OK ladies, my understanding is that if you run two ducers that are atlest 50khz apart you will not have interference. So what you can do, and me and a friend are setting his boat up this way, is for X-15 get both the 50khz and 200khz ducers so you can run another system on the 200khz- like a
Sexi Vexi or what have you and run the X-15 on its 50khz, and then run the X-15 on 200khz when you want to, shallower water, pin pointing structure and fish...
To get technical on you, the 50khz reads object that I think .023cm or larger and the 200khz reads objects .007cm or larger... so you are missing out on the difference of .016cm which is so tiny it shouldnt matter. Now running the 50khz in shallower water should not matter.. according to my brother who is a PHD in accoustical engineering. Now I am not the PHD here and this is what I remeber from some research and picking up stuff from other places... If I am wrong, god dont I sound like an one-just-like-silly-me.

I'll put in a plug for Reed's also. I had a pricing problem with them, but they came through for me. Super customer service!
