Good point - I cannot see a need for SI on the bow but rather 2D/DI/SI on the console and then 2D/DI and/or Live Scope on the bow - do you agree?

Noticed on the video on the console units he was not comparing apples to apples.  He was using 1.1 MHZ on the side scan on HB (4:19) and 455 KHZ on the lowrance (4:37), you can see it clearly on the bottom left of the unit when he pans.   Of course it will be better out a long way on the L. If he would set the Bird to 455 it would look the same. 

When I look for stuff at 150 feet I use 455 setting and when looking close for detail i use Mega.  Its all in knowing how to use your unit and what it has for capabilities. Disappointed he didn't know that being the pro that he is.  Maybe he should revisit his video and update it. 

When I get a chance I will see what else I can find.  

This video tells how to use a bird correctly to see what you want to see with the 3 frequencies available.  Mr Wheeler needs to watch this.  :)

Ha...  Just went to the youtube channel and looked at the comments.  I am not the only one to catch this.  Now If I could get some good weather so I can use my Graphs I would. 

Maybe I just need to retire so I can fish anytime.

Here is really something to keep in mind.  These pro's have not only companies throwing merchandise, but also money at them.  Sometimes the money is hard to believe if you hear the numbers for some of these mega companies that are sponsors.  I  really can't go there its not nascar money, but its scary.

I'll go back to KVD.  "Just because I use it doesn't mean you will get the same result." 

More of these Pro's BASS, Bass Pro tour, FLW and BFL don't have or may have this stuff on their boats but really don't use it all that much.  Yes the Panoptics it a big deal for just about everywhere, but how many guys just go down the friggin bank and don't pay a whole lot of attention to it.

More than do.

Right now this is a massive arms race.  If your buying a new boat really there is no price ceiling, you can keep on adding to pretty much infinity.  Just have to be able to write the check.

Good Luck
