I rarely use my finder to be honest, however, that said I know pretty well where Im fishing and over what.

That said I have an eagle something or other, looks like this one:

The sensor screws into the rear, with a power pack (motorbike battery) basically in a bag strapped to the seat back, screen is on a removable fixing point above the bottle holder. (Tarpon 120A)

Eagles are ok, even the cheap ones that annually turn up in Lidl would be ok, as for where to get them, make me an offer you can have mine!

Hummingbird models are a safe bet but maybe a bit out of price range,depending on what your willing to spend.I personally have the 565 model but have just upgraded to a 383 combo with built in gps.Prices start at around 160 quid.The garmins and cudas are a bit more basic but seem to do the job.Its a case of,you get what you pay for really.Im on forum called anglers afloat which is a very helpful site,so maybe have a look on there and compare notes.Hope this helps,tight lines

I use a Garmin 80 (very old now) it's been underwater a few time and still works OK, just put on plenty on silicon grease on the plug before you go out. One thing about Garmin their after sales service is second to none
