Wobbles a bit, not good for trolling.
on March 2, 2012
I bought one of these units for my kayak but have been unable to mount it so the transducer and shaft don't stick into the water at an angle. The clamp mounting system needs a straight surface to attach too, which aren't common in molded kayaks. The other drawback is the unit wobbles inside the sleeve even at extremely low speeds, I mean low like barely paddling at all!
However, in general I'm satisfied with the product. It's easy to use, identifies structure, fish and schools of baitfish well. I've caught several fish with it. The batteries last a very long time, it's easy to read in bright sunlight. I've used it on other boats where a there was a better mounting surface and it performed better, but the wobbling issue was still present. Don't expect to troll with this unit.
