    Default Buying new electronics - which one???

    Looking to get some new electronics for ice fishing and want your thoughts on which brand you like best. Please follow up with a reply on which model you like also. Thanks

    I have a Hummingbird Ice 55 and love it. I fish a lake with alot of structure and this unit makes it very easy to to identify between fish and structure. I've had it now for 5 years and no problems other than replacing the battery this year. I use it in the boat also. Hope this helps!

    Been fishing vex's for close to 20 years. Picked up a FL-22 HD last season and only got to use it around 6 times. Not a bad unit but heavy. I used a Lowrance M-68C more last season and really like it more than my vex. Has GPS built into it with the maps already. Great for going back to the same spots that produced for me. Dont overlook the new Lowrance icefishing units. Should have included them in your poll.

    I run a bird ice 35 for the money I think its hard to beat. I am going to be using the 587 ci HD di units from my boat this year though. Haven't tried it yet so I can't give it a positive reveiw

    There were some guys around here running that unit. Most had nothing but good things to say about them. If your into ice fishing check out www.iceshanty.com there is more info there than I could pick up in two lifetimes of ice fishing.
