This product worked great in shallow areas as indicated. I fished a larger area that went from 5 fow to 25 fow. I had to keep taking the s-cable off or turn up the gain really high everytime I went to the deep holes. I wish Vexilar made a switch that you could bypass the s-cable. Otherwise great service from FishUSA.com

Brought an older FL-8 STL , lots of clearwater lakes that i ice fish, some shallower.

 having the S- cable will help in locating the pannies that roam the shallow water in the weedbeds.

 I used it for the first time just after new year, weedbeds around 3' to 5' . it worked great!


Pros: drops the gain to see shallow pannies

Cons: none
