SmartStrike is Lakemaster. Just has the extra feature of fish prediction location software.

There are three Lakemaster products that have the same maps.
Lakemaster
Lakemaster Plus----has satellite overlay

It is tournament legal. I have one and it doesn't takes enough into consideration. It's ok if you fish new lakes a lot, it won't help you if you are familiar with a lake already. I think it has potential but it needs more variables to be effective. Currently it won't tell you anything you likely don't already know.

That said, it is just an extra feature to a card you already need. Get it from ultimate passage and price difference isn't significant.

You can have them both in at the same time, but you dont need to. The smart Strike card has everything your other lakemaster card will have on it, it just has extra proramming as well.

Smartstrike programming is on the same card along with the Lakemaster mapping.

Thought this was going to be about a nice way to call someone dumb.
