Lowrance Elite 7ti. I'm pretty happy with it, but I bought it before they released the Elite 9ti otherwise I would have got the 9.

Here is a screen shot of a big school of Redfin with some larger fish lurking around I took on Saturday.

I run a HDS 7 Gen 3. Its ok.

A mate of mine just bought an Elite 9 for his kayak. It's a better unit than the HDS if you're looking at Lowrance gear.

Don't really know what to add for pros and cons. They work. The newer model sounders have better resolution than the older model sounders.
Cheers,

Get the one that has the total scan transducer. It is an all in one transducer.

With the most recent Lowrance software update, most of the units which offer side-imaging can make use of just the total scan transducer.
