Looking for the best depth finder and transducer made for offshore fishing and striper fishing I would like a machine that has great details for bottom dropping as well.
Also what is the best radar oout today for range and picking up birds for large center console.
Thanks in advance for your help.
If one company makes all that would be nice to large single screen
Where is the best place to buy them.

Raymarine for the CC- You will need a 10kw radar to pick em up good- I have an open array 4kw that if tweaked will pick em up 2-3 nm but the 10kw will get em (you may need an extra power supply to run that radar though) Good luck on whatever you get:thumbup:

Had my Furuno FCV585 giving great bottom detail at 165 Fa out of OI yesterday. I have the B164 Airmar 1KW thru hull tilted element 'ducer. I've heard other reports of the 585 seeing down to 1800', but I haven't been there myself yet.

What jloomis said. The Furuno 585 is a great bottom machine, the transducer he has is the one to get, the TD is almost as important as the machine is.
