Greetings,
If I wanted to make a "sonar reflector" what is the most important quality?
Density or shape or hardness ?

Thanks,
Mike

If you mean to test in the water, you use tennis balls. I’ve also heard of guys using ping pong balls for really fine tuning.

Does this work because of the trapped air in the ball?
Makes sense

Yes, just like the air bladder in fish.
