    Re: Lowrance Carbon - questions.

    You will not have imaging (StructureScan) without traditional (2D) sonar. So I assume the bundle with StructureScan transducer also has the HST-WSBL 2D transducer.
    What type of hull do you have, or what make and model boat is it? Certain hull configurations are not acceptable to TotalScan transducer usage.

    If you are a bass fisherman then you want the structure scan. It's more detailed in it's imaging.

    Total scan uses one transducer.

    If you do more trolling fishing styles, then you may just want a elite model.

    Lowrance Carbon - questions.

    Hi there.

    After reading a lot on fish finders, I decided to go with Lowrance, and seems like I even selected the model that is within my budget, but there are certain things I wanted to ask. So, I decided that I am going with a Lowrance Carbon, 9 inch.
    Here's the one - https://www.boatid.com/lowrance/lowr...494747564.html
    But I see there are 2 transducer options: Total Scan transducer (cheaper) and Structure Scan Transducer (more expensive). I've checked the manual, but I don't really understand what the difference is. Maybe it's me being stupid or something haha. Just wanted to check this with people, who know more about Lowrance electronics than me. Do yu folks think, that the more expensive transducer is worth its money?
    Also, what if I get the unit without a transducer? Will I really feel the difference?

    Thanks!
