    HB for me. Based on good prior knowledge with Garmin I bought a 93sv, a piece of junk.

    Had the Helix 9s and 7s and the Low. Hook 9. Went back to the Helix after the hook 9. For me, the helix was just easier to use and adjust. Probably because I have a lot more time with the helix.

    Iíve got 2 Helix units. A 9 and a 10. I also have a Garmin. Iíve got buddies with Lowrance. They all work. They can all have issues. Best advice I can give you is to get the biggest one you can afford. Resolution of the screen makes more difference than name brand does

    Totally agree with biggest screen in your budget! A big fish is a small dot when you are scanning 80-100 ft each side of the boat. I’m a Lowrance HDS fan, just because that’s what I’ve used over the years. If getting a side imaging unit, minimum screen width I’d recommend is 10”. Use the full width when you can. The sonar quizzes on the CDC electronics page can really help you get up to speed on interpreting your unit. Most of those guys use HB units. Best of luck!

    I'd give a hard look at the Lowrance Hook7 and the HB Helix 7. SI has a pretty good learning curve so if budget is a consideration I'd go with 2D/DI and GPS.
    Folks love Garmin also, I just don't know anything about them. I'm sure they are good too, so most bang for your buck is what I'd go for.
    Important note. HB will exchange your transducer at no cost IF it has not been opened. So if you buy a HB with transom mount and you want a TM mount they'll swap out for you, just don't open the packaging on the transducer.

    There are times I like touch screen, and times I don’t (hands slimy). Having option of both is best when possible. Saw your preference list...and no I have no affiliation or sponsors other than myself. Tough decision sometimes.
