Can't speak for the newer models, but I have run a Bird and Lowrance together. Had a lot of interference. This was an HDI 5 and Helix 5.

I'm on my sixth year with my 8" convertible and had to sharpen once because I hit some dirty ice. Blade edges are a bit sensitive. Also using the older 750 ips Fuel 18 brushless. I have run it several times through 30 plus inches of ice with the 14" extension and it never slowed down. When I got my blade back from Frank it was sharper than factory. He does an excellent job with a fast turnaround. Only time I had trouble is when I forgot my drill. Luckily I had the handle with.

Looking for info on Loopers. Has anyone tested the water this year yet to see if there are any left or is it pretty much a waste of time anymore. PM me if need be. Just want to know if there are any left. Usually spend time for them while waiting for walkable ice. Thanks.

I have no association with any of the shanty brands, but I bought a Polarbird late last winter on closeout. Never had a chance to use it. but did set it up once. The quality of the product is second to none, Everything is heavy duty and sturdy. The biggest drawbacks people complained about where the windows. To high to watch flags. Another complaint was they do not make a flip-over. My understanding is the new models this year will have better windows. I would not hesitate to purchase again. I've owned all the others and this product line is every bit as good as Otter or better.

Just started using it on my 73sv my last two trips and so far I like it. Learned a lot of info from youtube videos first.

Still learning, but encouraged. Spent more time working the panoptix than quickdraw.

I bought a Striker 7 last year and used it all summer. In comparison to a first gen Helix 5 the Striker unit is far superior and not because of the size difference. I in-store compared to all the other popular brands and the clarity of the Garmin is what sold me. Side imaging is outstanding and in my opinion the down imaging is far better than the Helix 5 I used previously. Cannot compare to the Mega units, but did compare Dv to an Elite 7 and was every bit as good. The only drawback I found in comparison to the Helix is I have yet to find a zoom feature for Sv. This year I bought the EchoMap version for Panoptix which I have not used yet, but will still be running the Striker as my bow mount.

It works great for me. Not sure about a brake however. The spool lock seems to work for holding the boat and I've never had any slippage issues. Still pretty new however so time will tell. I made mine removable though. Too many thieves around these days. Next time I get the boat out I can take some photos if you want.

I mounted one of these last year http://www.harborfreight.com/2500-lb-atvutility-electric-winch-with-wireless-remote-control-61840.html
Then run 10 ga. wire off a 60 amp breaker right from the truck battery. Only problem is you have to remember to engage the winch before getting in the boat.

How has it hurt the Great Lakes? I was looking for it and can't seem to find any information on how it's hurt numbers of fish?


Lampreys nearly whipped out the native lakers in Superior. Once control measures went into effect and massive stocking happened there is now a self sustaining population. Just one example. Research it. There is lots of info out there. Every invader changes the system. A few are good, but most are not.
