    Why does this make me think that their inventory is high with this particular model and feature. Really would like to hear something about the hds 8 and rebates. Probably won’t till the first of the year when sales slack off. Here’s hoping…

    • admin

      Good point. Why would they offer a rebate on only the one model with the one mapping option? I think a rebate across the board would work much better, but with StructureScan just coming out it seems like these things would be selling pretty well anyway. Who knows?

      Maybe when the new HBs are released with DownImaging it will put more price pressure on Lowrance. I’m trying to find out more about the new HB models and I’ll be posting some info soon.

      Thanks for the comment drifter106
