Does anyone know the difference between the Standard Horizon HX751 and the HX750?  They seem to be the same.  One is just a newer model.  I'm wondering if the new one is worth the $50.00 more.

Also, does everyone just clip their radios on to their PDF?  I was looking at some PDFs, but the pockets seemed to small for this sized radio.

The newer HX751 has the "Luminescent Glow in the dark gasket" which is not worth the extra $50 IMO.  And yes, I clip my radio to my PFD.

if the radio has the old style clip with the round piece that slides into the clip see if you can get the upgrade, mickfish had a post on it, i will try and find it, the style of clip i had made the radio swing and if it got past 45dg it would pop off, which is what mine did in the surf zone, so either get the upgraded clip or have a secondary attachment to your pfd, cameron

Well Stu, kayak fishing is a lifestyle, not a hobby, sometimes you have to look at the swell report and say "Hey bud let's party"
