I agree. Tough to see on those bright, sunny Colorado days. I have one and a Marcum....I usually lean towards the Marcum although I love the digital display and the different modes (very useful). Finding depth is uber easy and the scroll mode is fun! If you think a flasher is like a video game, the scrolling mode on the Lowrance is awesome!gofindyourowndamnfish said:The display is not bright enough for my liking.
Saw that...that's a good deal Andy!Trout said:There was a used one on C L a few days ago for $140

Wow alot of stuff to do ;DBabyHuey said:I have rented Vexilar units for a couple of days and I own a couple X-67's. After using both, I prefer the scrolling sonar screen on the X-67 as opposed to the flasher screen. I like to have the few seconds of "history" shown on the screen to help one understand what you did with your jig and how the fish reacted to your presentations. For those that haven't used a sonar unit in the sonar screen, it shows a few seconds of history as the screen scrolls from right to left - but real time on what your jig and the fish are doing is at the far right side of the screen as it scrolls. This is different than flasher units, where they are always real time with no history. The nice thing about the X-67 is that you can use either the sonar screen or the flasher screen - it is nice to have both options depending on the screen view that you like.
As far as zooming, the X-67 can be zoomed in I beleive up to 8x the normal view, and the FL-20 can be zoomed into different depths like 6-12' off of the bottom.
They both are nice units, but the X-67 will be a couple hundred dollars cheaper than the Fl-20 or the FL-22, and have the option of the flasher or sonar screen.
And where might I find those?captain shuyak said:
You were close...its the evil scientists at CSU controlling the light output from the sun...next week photosynthesis will no longer work on the planet as we know it...as a result I would buy Xcel energy stock...They're probably the ones that made the screen dim.
