For objectives to use in consideration...

What kind of fishing do you do?

Are you looking for depth and bottom hardness or fish?

For alternatives...

Consider E-bay as well as some of the favorites mentioned on the board.

You should look at the Furuno ls4100 street price about $170 but w/o a transducer

Furuno is one of if not the best. However several posts on this board from owners suggest they do not work well in less than 8ft.

Humminbird is ok but lacks display quality.

Lowrance and Eagle (same company different target markets, with Lowrance higher end) make excellent FF for this type of use.


Garmin makes a quality product probably second to Furuno.

The most important thing to consider is your transducer. Make sure you get a high frequency ducer (e.g. 200) for 50ft and less.

Just to throw it out there...
I recently upgraded to a new Furuno LS6100 and my old unit (LS6000) is going to be sold.
Its working fine and i removed, cleaned and painted the transducer. I will put it on eBay soon. Just wanted to see if anyone would be interested in it before i do that.

Thanks,
Sal.
