Airmar's new TM165HW transducer delivers 600 watts of power, is chirp-ready, and provides inshore anglers with more sensitivity to detect fish close to the bottom and more-accurate returns of fish and bait. To do all that, Airmar delivers an average beam width of 30 degrees—wider than most high-frequency ­transducers—across the entire 150 to 250 kHz band. The wider beam also means greater fish detection in the upper water column nearer the boat. The transducer pairs with current-model Lowrance, Simrad, Raymarine, Garmin and Humminbird units via an adapter. The retail price for the transducer is $499.
