Anyone else hear that starting in 2019 skeeter now comes with hummingbird instead of Lowrance?

Supposedly new colors and a new model also other than ZX and FX.

Yes. Humminbirds are standard. Ultrex standard on FX and a new model called an Apex. It will be the top of the line.

Birds work with the Ultrex which would make sense

And the cost ? I'm sitting down, bring it.


I am a Senager. (Senior teenager) I have everything that I wanted as a teenager, only 50 years later. I don't have to go to school or work. I get an allowance every month. I don't have a curfew, I have a drivers license,a PU truck and I have a bass boat.

They had a six-figure one on the showroom. I'm guessing around that price.

As long as they keep their 'Work Horse', the ZX. Then they're on the right track.

I think I heard this at Diamond Sports at Fork. I just bought their last 2018 FX20LE in Oxblood. Great color if you are an Aggie.
I would have no problem with birds as long as they were the top line charts. I used to have Humminbird but since I went with Lowrance, I like them better. I put 2 -12" Carbons on this boat, and can't wait to get it on the water.
By the way, J&J is a new Falcon dealer. They will have four new ones in about 2-3 weeks. I looked at some elsewhere. They are a plain looking boat but very wide (99") and have all of the horns, whistles, and bells.
But I got the Skeeter I wanted.
The boat dealers are going to sell a lot of boats for the next two years!

Good Luck to all

Yes, yank those Lowrance units out...………………….you can have humminbirds that show 926' feet while in 7 feet of water unless you know how to manipulate the units to read correctly…………..(BBC post).

As a added bonus...………….you can get double or triple returns while in 10' or less water. All for the small price of $8,000.000 (unless you know the manipulations smile
