So after a 2 yr hiatus, I am starving for fresh fish... can't stand grocery store fish.
All my gear is fine, but looking to upgrade my Eagle greyscale FF. I primarily fish ocean, so give me your recommendation for a color FF good for salt. If you're looking to sell what I'm  looking for, let me know. Btw, I will be @ the tourney next week in Anchor Bay. Thanks.

I'm saving my duckets for the Garmin 44dv. Price, features and IPX7 rating seem like winners. I was looking at another popular brand but didn't like what I saw in reviews.

Seabird -

I just picked up a Garmin 53DV and love it. I think you'll enjoy the 44DV. When I was looking for reviews there weren't many out there, but I'm happy with my purchase.

I know this is Lowrance territory but I really live my hummingbird.i have the 597 ci di.i also had Lowrance units with similar options but I like the hummingbird.
 I was wondering what happened to ya.
My biggest worry is that my wife(when I'm dead)will sell my fishing gear for what I said I paid for it
