As Chirp continues to redefine recreational fishing, Airmar has expanded the
lineup of single band transducers to satisfy the growing demand for this game
changing technology. The M285HW, is a 1kW, economical Chirp transducer designed
for offshore fishing and freshwater anglers. Operating at the high frequency
range of 150-250kHz and a fixed wide beam of 25 degrees, these transducers
reveal ultra-clear target resolution in shallow, murky waters at shallow to
medium depths (up to 700 feet).
The transducer includes a plastic housing which is secured inside the hull of
the boat and is filled with Eco-friendly anti-freeze. The transducer is inserted
into the housing and adjusted for the proper dead rise offset,insuring the beam
is shooting straight down. The liquid provides the best medium to transmit
through the fiberglass and into the surrounding water. The benefits to the
in-hull transducer are that there are no protruding features on the exterior of
the hull making it the perfect choice for trailered or lifted boats. Designed
for smaller boats up to 25’ with solid core,fiberglass hulls.
