I was considering a Garmin unit but what you just posted said electronics were excluded. But others on here are saying they were successful so IDK.

Garmin is restricted, won't load the code in the cart, but Lowrance is letting the code work.

I am trying to decide between the Daiwa Ardito or Fenwick HMG travel rods to keep in my vehicle. Anyone have any experience/thoughts? The HMG comes with a m and mh tip and the ardito has a choice between m and mh. I would use it when I don’t have other rods with me so it would need to be kind of an all-purpose setup. Only $10 difference with this sale.

The Ardito is really nice.  I brought my 7' mh down to Okeechobee back in Feb and caught a ton of bass pitchin a 1/2 oz jig.  Not once did the pieces shift or get loose.  I'm actually trying to talk myself outta getting the medium right now!

Had a MH in my cart and decided to sleep on it. They sold out before I made up my mind this morning.

I own the 7' Med Ardito and it is a great rod. I've been using it every weekend when I travel on bike to hard to reach/out of the way ponds and rivers. I bring along 3 or 4 different daiwa reels with different lines and it handles them and a wide range of baits very well. Once I assemble it, I forget it's a 3 piece. No sliding of pieces after a whole day of fishing. I would not hesitate to pick one up. I'm actually wanting to get the MH version now too.

Academy has 25% off 6th Sense lures and they have a much better selection of colors than Overton's...just an FYI.

Good find on the Ardito.  I have been in the market, but did not want to spend over $100 on a good travel rod.  Got the M spinning for $75 after shipping and tax.

When is the 40% Overton's deal ending? Any items excluded?

It looks like it still works....have HDS7 Carbon in my cart....been trying to rationalize how I never have wanted a 7in screen for my yak....and almost hoping the discount will disappear before I pull the trigger

I'm doing the same thing with the 3 Waters Big Fish 105 yak.  $480 seems too good to pass up but I just don't know if I'll like yak fishing enough..

I picked up an Elite-7 Ti a couple months ago for a decent deal. I also thought that the 7 in screen would be overkill on my kayak but I can’t see myself using a smaller one now. It’s particularly useful for split screen applications or side scan imaging. I was tempted to upgrade to the Carbon when this overtons40 coupon popped up but you’d need a pretty big battery (20 ah at least) to power it all day per the specs.

I use a HDS7 during ice fishing season and I use a regular 12v and get about 6-8 hours of screen on time out of it. You can definitely power a HDS7 just fine off a 12v. Just don't expect it to last a 8+ hour session at full screen brightness. I carry two 12v's with me ice fishing and can get through an entire day no problem.

What is the capacity of your battery?

 

My Elite-7 Ti with Totalscan transducer drains my 12v 10ah battery in about 6-8 hrs. Depending on how bright I need to turn the screen up. This is with sonar and GPS constantly running. I’d expect the HDS-7 Carbon to drain the same battery in about half the time based on the specs I’ve found on both units. Unless, Lowrance’s listed specs for the HDS-7 Carbon are for the structurescan 3D bundle.

 

I ordered a 12v 12ah lithium battery on eBay to hopefully power my Elite-7 Ti a couple hours longer than my current SLA battery, which I’ll be bringing as a backup in case we’re out fishing on extended trips.

You really can't beat this kayak for the price. The 105 was my second choice to the nucanoe frontier 12. But shipped for $520, unreal. I pulled the trigger. I could buy 3 105s at this price point instead of a frontier 12.  Now I have a little play money to customize and spend on a good paddle.

 

One thing I noticed during the checkout was that they have two varieties of the 105 on the site.  The charcoal one does not qualify for discounts and there is a $125 freight fee. The green one rung up free shipping and discount eligible.  $520 is not bad to try out yaking, I figure I'll sell it if I find out I don't like it.  Now let's see if they actually ship it and don't cancel my order.

I'm just using the off-the-shelf 12v from Cabelas. I am just using an ice transducer which may require less power than a totalscan.

I've been running a Garmin Echomap CHIRP 73sv on my kayak for a few years. I upgraded to a Echomap Plus 93sv this last fall and used it for ice fishing. I got plenty of battery life (8hrs+) out of a LiFePO4 10aH. I'm pumped to have the 9" screen on the yak this year.

I noticed that about the other color. Yeah it seems too good to pass up.

It won't let me apply OVERTONS40 to my cart any longer. It looks like it is dead. Is anyone else able to apply it?

Well I’m glad I used it last night right before I went to bed.
