You like it? Or love it?

Was it worth the money or are you disappointed in the picture quality?

Would you do it again if you had the chance?

Has it been a game changer for you?

I have a transom mount 360 connected to Helix 10's with SI/DI. Hardly ever turn the 360 on. It's OK for finding structure, but if this one went down, I wouldn't spend the money for a replacement.

Thanks Stratvoofdo.

It's a lot of money so I'm hesitating

Brandon Palaniuk BASS Elite angler used often and a lot to win on Rayburn last month... I talked to a other Elite pro that said he just used the SI on his trolling motor... Guess everyone has their own preference.

I have the transom mount and rarely use SI anymore. It's nice to see stuff before you run up on it. I prefer the transom mount because I can idle on the big motor looking for structure/cover/baitfish. It really has been useful.

I like mine but I probably wouldnt buy it again. I have the TM mounted 360. It would probably be better if I fished deeper more, but I am still working on that mindset. I have used it a time or 2 to chase a school of bass that kept moving. It does have its uses but I primarily use it to find structure, not fish. If you have everything else you want and an extra $800, then get it, but if there is something else you want and you have to decide between the 360 and something else then you may wait for the 360.

I have it on my trolling motor. Love it. I can see exactly were the the brush pile, lay down etc, is before I'm on it and allows me to be more accurate with my cast. I would not go without it. I use side imaging, DI when looking for fish.

Yes, I have had the trolling motor version since it first came out.
When I am not using SI at the bow with the SI transducer on the trolling motor, I am using 360.
Have used it with a Humminbird 1198c SI Combo, ONIX 10 SI NT, SOLIX 12 SI, and currently with a Helix 12 CHIRP SI GPS.

I find cover, bass, and catch bass using the 360:









I don't fish for pan fish, but I see them like these spawning shellcrackers:

BTW, I purchased the 360 before the $500 MSRP price drop for both versions. $1499.00 and would do it again for that price.
The transom version was 1999.00.
Did not want the transom version since I mostly fish stuff like this:

Thanks for the info guys. I wish a lot of off shore piles and structure and think this would be very helpful.

One last question.

I want to do a 10ich.......is the Onix the way to go? Trying not to break the bank....
