Seems like it won’t make sense to have an electronics sponsorship. That stuff is changing so quickly to do so would mean missing out on the latest greatest. Another instance where it looks like Wheeler was a genius. Not sure if he was first upper echelon of angler to do it but he got a lot of coverage for doing it.

He's doing like Wheeler did last year. More guys don't want to be at a disadvantage with only running a single brand.

Makes absolutely perfect sense to me. Without having everything at your disposal your behind the 8 ball already.

Since Lowrance has the new AT, doesn’t make sense to not have gone with them.

Use the best of what each has to offer.

I won’t argue either way until I see more real AT users, but I do know that the LS technology is truly baffling at what it shows. Nothing can hide when you get it in the beam, I missed so much stuff on SI it’s amazingly scary.

More and more youtube videos showing AT images everyday and a good number of LS videos out there.
I dont have either one right now but I'm trying to review all of them to make a decision.
I have noticed in the videos that the AT appears to have a bit more "tear" between adjacent sensor portions of the image.
I dont think i see as much of that on the LS images.
Is this one of the differences you have seen? My imagination? Bad set-up by the users?

I have always appreciated people who don't have a contract using what they think is the best instead of some guy that is getting paid to pimp a product! cheers

Seems kind of a dumb move on Lowrance's part to require exclusivity.
If a pro uses your equipment on his boat, will put your logo on his wrap and shirt . . why would you care if he also uses competitors stuff?
If he wins with you on board, mission accomplished.
The pro needs to be successful and advertise for whoever helps make that possible.

Imagine if Strike King said no other lures but ours. Our Zoom said nobody elses soft plastics. etc. etc.

A bit of arrogance on Lowrance's part.

So for a comparison you're saying it would be ok for Michael Jordan to wear Adidas.

It sounds like Lowrance is the one that won in this case. They didn’t give him free graphs or a trolling motor and he had to buy the graphs that he has. It’s not as if John Crews has been exactly blazing his way in the victory circle. I’d rather see every pro have to buy their mechandise, it would cut down on all the pre-weigh in BS.
