Lowrance Hook2

Recommended Posts

I'm wanting to upgrade my electronics on my boat. It is a 2007 Triton VT-17. It came with old Lowrance mounted flush in the dash. I have a budget of about $500 to spend on a new unit. I've researched plenty over the last few weeks and the one that keeps grabbing my attention is a deal I found at Bass Pro Shops (I'm going there in TN next weekend to Pigeon Forge, so I could pick it up in person) 

 

Lowrance Hook2 Tripleshot with Navonics includes GPS, Sidescan, Downscan, and Chirp for $429.99. I really want side and down scan and GPS, and with upgraded with a preloaded Navonics Card I thought this is a great unit that fit's my budget. Keep in mind any of today's units will be a considerable upgrade to my little black and white dinosaur that I currently have. 

 

Does anyone have any experience with this unit. Maybe someone in the know could fill me in on if this is a great unit that fits my need. I fish with my father a lot for leasure and I am planning on occasionally fishing a few local tournaments at the local club level.

They're ripping people off in this so-called sale.  The retail price for that unit has been $399 and for some reason it is now $429.

If it's $30 more with a $100 + map card I'd say that's far from a rip off. If that's indeed what the sale is.

That combo will be $119.99 during the spring sale...

 

+1 for spending your entire budget on electronics. Personally, I find it more difficult to make big purchases than small purchases simply because I reach the money needed for the small purchases first and don’t let my budget reach the large purchases. Haha
