I've been using CP200 for a few months now, I'm very impressed with the ability to mark fish. It's been great the last few weeks while fishing for False Albacore, I've been able to direct my clients where to cast before the fish even show on the surface, it's definitely increased our hook up ratio.

Glad to know it works good.

I have been a Raymarine Pro Ambassador for twelve years, I work closely with them and frequently test new products prior to release. I'm in CT, so the guys from NH come down and we put the products through real world test conditions.

Hi

Do we know the operating freq yet? Can't be 200 or 350 kHz as that's already used by the downscan.

From the price are we looking at compromise Q transducers as well?

Found this on Google - 180ft and still looking strong. This thing might have some potential!

This shot is from a few weeks back, this is all Bay Anchovies prior to the False Albacore showing up. Had this one on my phone, I always forget to bring my micro sd card home after my trips.

Before this, I had the e120 which worked great since 2006

I only decided to upgrade because of the new CP200 sidevision which should see upto 600 feet in each direction…

I believe 600 feet in each direction is greater then the competitions units out there?

I’m hoping it will help me find more structure, contoured bottoms, and show the direction of the ledges etc..
