Fish Hawk

Post by striper192001 »

Last year at this time I was able to find good price on the Garmin Echomap. Anyone know if a place where they would put the Fish Hawk on sale ?
Thanks for all your help as always

Hard to find sales of this sought after unit. Best best is Craig’s list or eBay on a used unit for price breaks. I got mine in this forum for $450 as a steal:)

Fish on!

Thanks for those ideas.........I see one on FB. I wonder about transducer cable after he strips it off boat he bought. Also, am I getting the latest technology to save a couple hundred bucks.....

Typically if you buy a used unit it should come with transducer, cables, dash control module, and probe. IMHO as long as you get the newer X4, or x4d, or newest model you have the needed key info. The newest model has Bluetooth capability so you can read data on your phone.
Last I knew the transducer works for all models.

Don’t bother with oldest fish hawks that use black probes. As long as what you are buying is something with a clear probe, it is worth over $400 used if it works.

Ps a replacement probe is $300 and it is important… once you see your strike rate using a probe you won’t want to fish without it:). And there are quite a few on the bottom of the lake we have all donated over the years:)

New x4d’s are now listed over $1200 and x4 is running $1000 new so you’re saving more then a couple hundred bucks… if the one on Facebook is a x4d and has all the needed parts it is a great deal:)

Digitroll is the expert on these and May have info to add on the newer systems.

Hope this helps, Matt

If I needed one I’d buy that before I bought new:)

It’s like a 50% off sale on something that never lists below the msrp’s…

Good luck!
