VER­DICT

Angling Times (UK) - - TACKLE NEWS -

I HAVE been hugely scep­ti­cal about sonar de­vices since test­ing an early model in the lake be­hind the An­gling Times of­fice.

The wa­ter was 3ft deep, and rammed with carp, but the sonar read 30ft and in­di­cated no fish in the vicin­ity. That came as a bit of shock con­sid­er­ing a big scaly item was try­ing to eat it at the time!

How­ever, thanks to the new Deeper Smart Sonar Pro + I have had a com­plete change of mind. At a re­cent carp com­pe­ti­tion on very weedy venue it not only read the depth ac­cu­rately but showed on screen where the weed stopped and started, and how thick it was. I didn’t have to cast in and hope for the best. This is a hugely im­pres­sive de­vice, and a real edge for the mod­ern carp an­gler.
