I just ordered a Helix 12 SI MEGA from Tackle Warehouse for $2125
shipped on Thursday.
Call them, I'm sure they will give you the same price.
I mulled this decision over for a few weeks, between the Helix 12 SI CHIRP or the Helix 12 SI MEGA.
Both are super units.
I decided in the end to go for it all as this may very likely be the last sonar I buy in my
fishing career. I am also somewhat of a gadget nut and like to play with them. My curiosity
about these new features played into it as well. No doubt both will get the job done. It's
what Wayne P. said, the MEGA is just a more refined unit. Both
have the same Big Fat High Resolution
screen. That's a big part of the goodness right there. Whether I ever use anything other
than 455 kHz side scan remains to be seen. But it will be CHIRPed 455 kHZ.
