Humminbird PiranhaMAX 160 FishFinder Review

Humminbird PiranhaMAX 160: I really liked doing this Fish Finder review for the Humminbird PiranhaMAX 160. This is just one review for the Hummingbird fish finder series.

If you ever wanted to try using a fish finder I would highly recommend this unit as it’s simple to set up and simple to use plus the price can’t be beaten.

Check it out and I’m sure you will find out like I did that for this price you’re getting an awesome deal.

Humminbird PiranhaMAX 160 Sonar Options

Dual Beam Transducer 800W

The PiranhaMAX 160 PT uses a 200/83 kHz dual beam sonar system with a wide (60 degree) area of coverage. Dual Beam sonar is optimized to show the greatest bottom definition using a narrow (20 degree) beam yet can still indicate fish found in the wide (60 degrees) beam when the Fish ID+ feature is turned on. Dual Beam is ideal for a wide range of conditions–from shallow to very deep water, works well in both fresh and saltwater
