Sounder

 Hey guys, 

 

I'm looking at purchasing a new sounder but was hoping someone could clarify the difference between the furuno 628 and 588.

 

Only differences i could find is the screen size and that the 588 is capable of having a 1kw transducer.

 

I only fish upto approx. 60 metres so do you think the 628 will be more than capable for that kind of fishing?

 


Cheers,

Mitch

628 is more than a capable sounder but if your budget allows buy a 588, the larger screen and 1kw on the 588 is better.
