Lowrance Hook-3X (000-12635-001) Sonar
  • Great little sonar for my yak.

  • Decent depth finder for the money, I'm able to find brush piles with this unit.
  • Accurate depth readings while trolling around and with motor running.
  • This is not designed for 100's of feet of water. Other more powerful units are made for that.

  • Great to have GPS on this as well as dual beams. Compact and easy to read.
  • The dual beam transducer provides a more accurate depth reading as well as fish location.
  • CHIRP is also a game changer. The two things ill never go without again is CHIRP and color!
