Smile transducer for furuno 585

Need advice on transducer selection for Furuno 585 fish finder.
I fish a Century 20' CC out of Ft Lauderdale between 100' and 500'
I am thinking seriously about a 1 kw transducer.
First off wondering if the 1 kw unit will make a difference in this range. Secondly need to know what is the best choice.
I am contemplating the TM 260/258 and the thru hull 525TID-BHD.
I'm a little hesitate about the thru hull but the installation will be done professionally.

Am I wasting my time with the 1 kw transducers?

Appreciate your insight

TheTm260 is an excellent match.
It is an 8 element transducer and is 2 times more sensitive than the 4 element Tm258.

Also, the Tm260 is a true broadband transducer..theTm258 is good but is not a broadband.
Simply ..theTm260 is a very high quality unit.

Yes, it is available in a Furuno 10 pin.
PM sent.

Now when you get a TM260 with a Mix and Match system you can use it with almost any sonar.
(And they now are available in the new Garmin 8 pin so it will plug and play with the new GSD-24 and you dont' have to use that stupid adapter.)

I see you continue telling fairy tales about TM260

TM260 is 2 times as sensitive as TM258 at 50kHz and less sensitive at 200kHz.

But TM260 is a much better transducer than TM258 due the Broadband elements which gives less ringing. Less ringing means better target seperation.

Opps...that 5 was there by mistake.. thanks...lol
Fat tired fingers on the keyboard..

The key here is the Tm258 is 25 times more sensitive than the benchmark P66 and the Tm260 is 50 times more sensitive than the P66 (or B60)
