transducer help

Postby Capt David » Wed Jan 03, 2018 6:31 pm

I'm looking for the best bronze through hull transducer to use with the DFF3D for bottom fishing up to about 300ft. I have a 275lhw, but I like the idea of side scanning. What would be my best choice or am I not using a DFF3D properly for its intended use? Thank you

Capt. David,
What sounder do you have the 275 paired with?

The 275LHW will probably be hooked up to a Garmin 7616XSV. I'm adding two new Furuno TZT14 units and considering the DFF3D. Am I better off installing a DFF1-UHD or DFF1 for the best bottom view for wrecks, and structure? I would assume I need a narrow cone. This is a new build.

I'm trying to decide the same thing...having a hard time deciding which transducer for dff3d. Here are the current options:

165T-B54 Bronze Thru-Hull Multi-beam Transducer
165T-SS54 Stainless Thru-Hull Multi-beam Transducer
165T-TM54 Transom Mount Multi-beam Transducer
165T-50/200-SS260 DFF3D 50/200 Stainless Combination Thru-Hull
165T/265LH-PM488 DFF3D/CHIRP Combination Pocket
165T-50/200-TM260 DFF3D 50/200 Combination Transom Mount

My installer just suggested a 165T-B54. I'd also like to hear what Furuno would recommend.

Capt. David,
You should be able to do everything you want with the DFF3D. You will be able to split the display and have a 120 degree view in one window and then have a single beam display that is 20 degrees in another.
