I looked at the solix touch screens at bass pro and I wasnít a fan....seemed like too much features and buttons to get lost in compared to how naturally easy the helix is but we will see what happens.

The biggest thing I took away from my experiment is trust 2D over everything and crank that dang chart speed up! I think instead of keeping my chart speed on 6 all the time I will be hanging out around 8 or 10 lol. I couldnít believe how much better that fish looked at faster chart speeds!


Heck Man if an amateur like myself can operate a Solix then I know you'd be better at it..LOL!!! Btw I absolutely love my Solix...I already have the buttons I need to press down pat..LOL.....To tell you the truth it show great detail straight out of the box that I really don't have to mess with it a whole lot even when the lake bottom turns hard or soft.

Thatís good to know! I definitely will relook at them before I decide to buy something new. Iíd love the solix 16 with mega imaging if I do! The Helix is just so easy to use because Iíve used it for a long time.

Thanks!
