Lowrance HDS vs DSI

RatingNo Ratings


Lowrance is a very well known brand name in the fishfinder market. They not only have great products, but also great prices. They are very well liked because of their cost efficiency. Their ability to be a leader in the industry is no surprise, because getting a high-end product at a mid-grade price strikes well with customers. Also, Lowrance has fishfinders at every price point with every option, making their brand name available to anyone in the market for a fishfinder no matter their budget. Now that you are sold on Lowrance as a brand let us compare two of their highest selling models. The Lowrance DSI is about to face off against the Lowrance HDS fishfinders.

It is very difficult to pit these two models up against each other because the HDS blows the DSI out of the water, but the price is very different too. With the Lowrance HDS fishfinders you get the very best quality and design on the market. High Definition System (HDS) fishfinders use Broadband Sounder technology making it easier to find fish compared to other models and brands. On the flipside, the Lowrance Elite and Mark lines both have DownScan Imaging (DSI) models available and are a lot more cost efficient than the HDS line and will handle any task the everyday fisherman throws at it.

There are currently very few fishfinders on the market, if any that can stack up against the HDS models, so do not take this review as a DSI bashing. Even though the DSI fishfinders are easier on the wallet they do not sacrifice price. Both models are very advanced and are a great investment for any fishing boat. Whether you have a small boat or a charter you can’t go wrong with Lowrance brand fish finders. In conclusion, the winner is the buyer of the Lowrance fish finder no matter what model or series that they purchase.
