I like a lot of fishermen are looking at the SIs, those of you that have them , do you recommend them.. from what I have been reading in otehr places it doesnt look too good. Which one would you recommend, the 797 at $1000 , the 997 at $2000 or the 1197 at $3000. Really I think I am between the 797 and the 997. Or should I wait until the new models come out and and see if maybe the competitors offer up some new choices? Thanks for any help.
The lakes I fish are not deeper than 30 feet if that makes a differnce, also is the NVB worth the extra few hundred dollars.
I will be fishing West Tenn around Jackson, and the Tn River around Parsons.
