Simrad Radar Choice HD Digital or Halo Compression
 
Whats the better radar between the Simrad HD Digital 10Kw 4' or the Simrad Halo Compression 25w 4'. Looking for an option to pair up with the Evo 3 on a center console contender. Looking for the better of the two that will find birds while fishing. Sticking with Simrad and need no larger than a 4' antenna for the top.

Thanks

I've heard that the halo is not great at finding birds.

Simrad publishes a performance chart that puts the Halo4 just behind the 6kw radar for bird work. Iím not sure how much better the 10 is than the 6, but itís only going to increase the spread.

Have heard the Halo's bird performance isn't close to the HD radars. Have a 6kw on a CC with EVO2's and it works really well, btw you can get a new 6kw for around $2500 right now. You will need to provide 24 volts for the Simrad 10kw.
