    Default Livescope vs 360 vs SI

    Never had much of FF other than (777 HB) if memory serves me correct,,I died 5y ago or so.....Been out of Fish for bout that many years with Knee problems..But I'm Back...and wanting to take big upgrade...Pro/cons Please

    My take so far is SI would be cheapest! 360 been around a while and I like that its active even when sittin still and big picture.. Livescope is so new but WOW ! but don't show much but what your lookin at..

    Were talkin Fresh water cats and crappie and some pan fish

    It really depends on how you fish I would say. If I had the option to buy any of them, Iím pretty positive it would be the livescope. Just revolutionary all the way around. If you do buy the livescope and buy one of the plus units, it should have side imaging with it using the regular transducer that comes with it as well if I understand what Iíve read about the units correctly.

    I would comment, what fits your style of fishing? SI has the best picture of all as far as crispness and minute detail as it’s in mega dimensions at 1200 MHz power. Live scope is looking at 20 degrees of picture where ever you aim it, but in live viewing and not a perfect picture like a video, but really close. 360 gives you a picture in 455 MHz and can be not as crisp a pic as SI but you learn to read it and it shows fish, shows structure, trees, rocks, stumps and stick ups, weeds, creek channels, you name it and you can track the movement of fish as it scans like radar but there is a learning curve to reading it as well as setting it all up. I am seeing where the tourney fisherman is using all 3 sometimes to cover all their needs. A couple is using 2 livescope setups in front for more coverage due to 20 degree coverage. Is there any perfect setup??? Answer is No...except what suits your needs and satisfys the user and that is what you the user is trying to decide as well as how much do you want to invest in your setup? Good luck as all 3 are great tools to use.

    Maybe you could find someone in you local that has those units and might give you a demo. That way you could see for yourself which would suit you the best. Hang out at the boat launches and see if you can find someone to give you a ride.

    You can see a lot of videos on all 3 on YouTube also, and you can go to big box stores to view and play with as well.

    To bad you donít live in Oklahoma, you could come get a demo.
    They are all tools, each has its place.

    I like to hang at boat ramps anyway and watch the load and unload SHOWS...great Idea though and thanks..Biggest prob ..all near boat ramps are Saltwater

    as for U tube I been watchin and learning for months...I played at BBstores but I wonder if real life is different...You know they set up by experts

    SI is real high on my list cause most of my fish are in creeks off lake most are 100f to 200f wide and miles long ..Looking for cats and crappie /perch.. hide outs....Si is high on my list due to fact its cheaper and means i can get bigger unit.... But price is not that big a factor...and if I buy smart a unit thats upgradeable in future if need be to 360 0r livescope ....thats a +++....and That means choices are HB or Garmin...
    Thx to all so far and waitin on more to come
