Humminbird Helix ice ducer
« on: Aug 09, 2018, 08:12 PM »
Curious if anyone has had issues with the wider cone angle on the chirp transducer?  Considering it only goes down to 15 degrees, are you having issues fishing drop offs?

I have found if you take the depth setting and change it from auto and manually set the depth to a little greater than the depth your fishing it seems to take a way the problems I have have with my gen1 helix using the ice ducer.

manually setting depth is always a good idea on a helix

never had a problem fishing on drop offs with mine, 23* cone is the narrowest mine will go
