A new line of Chirp-ready transducers designed just for sportfishing and tournaments is now available. The transducer’s 40-degree beam width maximises coverage under the boat and brings back sharper, thick images, says manufacturer Airmar Technology Corporation.
Coverage under the boat equates to 440 feet of beam coverage in 600 feet of water – nearly triple the beam coverage of original Chirp-ready transducers.
By combining a low-frequency range of 40 to 60kHz with a medium frequency range of 80 to 130kHz, the improved series reveals more fish in the water column than ever before and is receiving good feedback from fishing boats captains.
“The more I use it the more I am impressed,” said John Bayliss, owner of Bayliss Boatworks. “It is by far the best transducer I have used while fishing for sailfish in depths ranging from 200 to 1,000 feet. The results should be in National Geographic!”
Marine installers are also reporting a good response to the new ultra-wide range. Joe Dieffenbach, of Custom Marine Electronics in Stuart, Florida, reports boat owners swapping existing transducers for the new Airmail model. “And they don’t have to pay thousands for a new install because the size retrofits existing PM111, R109 and CM599 models,” he added. They are quickly becoming the choice transducer for 2kW echo sounders.”
Airmar, based in Milford, New Hampshire, also assures customers that the new transducers will provide superior depth capability and maximum clarity. The line-up includes the PM411LWM pocket mount installation and the R409LWM thru-hull installation.
