Dad just bought a new boat and he's going with a Mega unit, but I've heard in the past you needed a high speed transducer to get optimal performance at speeds. For those of you that have it, do you notice a difference? I'm not talking about for SI/DI purposes, only when in 2D obviously. Thanks!

Also, at what speed do you notice a fall of in the regular transducer that comes with it? If the standard transducer works up to 20mph or so then I don't know how much use he'd get out of the high speed one because he'd be cruising spot to spot before slowing down to actually look for things more specifically.

Biggest reason I put a hs transducer on mine was because I wanted to mount the si transducer higher on the transom to avoid hitting anything when traveling at high speeds. My si transducer is completely out of the water when anywhere near planing speeds. Boat originally didn't have the HS transducer, only the si and it seemed to work fine by itself. I just prefer replacing 2d transducers when I hit a log or ice instead of the $$$ si transducer.
