I found it funny this was right above my post, considering I'm giving away 10 rods, in part because I made a 16 rod holder for the garage and even with these rods going away I still have more than will fit in the holder.
I have kicked around the idea of getting one. How has it been knowing that your phone has to be available to use. Any issues?...dropped phones, dead battery on phone, etc? I have kept with the Vex due to these potential issues.
Fish, u can always bring a battery bank.. I mostly use my tablet which has 4500 mah battery so no issue. The deepers last around 5 hours and fishhunter around 8. The ibobber last a very long time but I hate the wide angle

So the weakness is none have IR option. But the strong side is this Deeper pro+ has the ability to make lake bottom maps via internal GPS no boat need... Super cool Fishhunter 3d has the ability to create a 3d picture All except ibobber have flasher mode All are castable The weight is in ounces not pounds And all are cordless

Sure Ibobber marks fish but there are times when I'd like a flasher wheel and ibobber doesn't have one. Also cone angle is very wide 90 degrees.. So just guesstimating at 60' your coverage is 120 feet wide. It's great for shallow water but for deep water&long trips its one of the fishhunters 9 hour battery or short trips deeper pro or pro + 4 hour battery but selectable beam and internal GPS
