Humminbirds are like Fords. They are either the best thing you've ever owned or junk from day one!! No in between..... LOL!!

Agree with Straps. The eagle is fine for my needs. I was actually scared to spend any big money before I knew how it would work. Probably won't spend big $$ now that I know it is going to get banged some, drenched etc. Some people have run into problems with wider models, since they are generally mounted between the legs/feet. And the directions that JeffO posted for install are defintiely worth reviewing.

Ive never had one in a kayak, but in my boat while fishing for fun, or hulling in nets, my garmin, has taken a beaten. its 10 years old and still runs like new. Just wish it looked like it.

I just got a Lowrance x50DS for about $100. I made a custom mount for it to sit in a Scotty base, and will be installing it in the kayak next.

LEI makes both Lowrance and Eagle fishfinders, and they seem to be popular and well regarded for kayak use.
