    I had the RF15 you,ve shown.I got it because the screen was larger than the others.Turned out to be a bad move,it,s a real pain in the ass trying to place the screen somewhere that you can view it while your reeling it in.It was too hard looking down and watching where the transducer was at the same time.I returned it and got the RF25,which is the rod mount model.That worked out great,everythings right in front of you where you can see it.If your interested in one,maybe you might want to hold off Aaron,Cabelas runs them 1/2 off at least twice a year.:wink:

    I have a hand held fish & depth finder that I got as a gift from walmart.com. The cost was $45 & it works great. You can place the lanyard around your neck & hang the screen from. just drop the sonar in the water & turn it on. You may try that for a lot less money. It is a Hawk Eye F33P just larger than the palm of your hand!

    Ok keep me posted Jake on how it does for you. Also, James I don't recall hearing of a hawkeye depthfinder before but thanks for letting me know about it I am going to check it out here soon.

    Bottom Line: Trying to find an affordable depthfinder that will give every detail and feature.

    Thanks again everyone for your feedback.
