Hello ice anglers,
My brother is going to purchase a sonar or flasher for ice fishing.
Normally, I would say Vexilar. But it is time for me to be fair to other products out there. I'd really like unbiased (as best as possible) information on the units you are running. Here's some needs:
A unit that just works. No glitches.
A fast screen.
One that does not drain the battery horrible.
One that can TAKE A BEATING!!!!!! That is, bounce around in the back of a towed Polar Sport (now the X something or other Ice Clam) or on a four wheeler and not be babied.
I would say Vexilar all the time but a couple things I do like are having contours readily available. Also, I guess I'm getting lazy. Having a digital readout would be nice for depth checking.
But again, I do not want to sacrifice any of the above needs.
Please provide any help guys and gals. Much appreciated.
