The angle of the transucer refers to the cone angle. Consider the cone angle an inverted funnel extending down from your hole. The 2 most common angles are 10 and 19. The wider the cone angle the larger amount of bottom your transducer will cover. generally speaking the deeper you fish the smaller your angle should be allowing your vex to concentrate more on the area just below your bait. Iversely if you fish mainly shallow water say under 20' the wider your beam should be. But im no expert ask any of the guys that have fished with me lately.

Just got a new one last week. My 19 degree was a bit dinged up and was reading a lot of false marks and my gain had to be way up around 4-6 in order to see my presentation. Well, the wife went to Dick's and picked up a dual transducer (one that you can switch back and forth from 9 - 19 degrees) For me this comes in real handy as I like to move around alot. 19 is by far the most common and will give you about a 3 foot viewing area at 10 feet where a 9 degree will give you just over a foot at 10 feet. Now that I have the new one hooked up I can have my gain set between 0 - 1 and clearly see my presentation. NICE..... Just picked up a five pack of SOS... cant wait for the wife to get home from work so I can head out. Got presidents day off. grin.gif
