      I have the PiranhaMax 150 on my Bomber fish and ski. It does a good job for the price. Besides you cannot go wrong with a Hummingbird.

      Thanks for creating this lens. It is a fine demonstration of what the market has to offer in portable devices. Too many people simply don't understand fish finders. So, to have portables highlighted the way you have is very helpful to those wondering what they should purchase.
