Hook Reveal combines the old and the new to deliver powerful performance
Leading marine electronics manufacturer Lowrance believes its new Hook Reveal units will make fishing easier than ever.
Following on from the success of its similarly budget-friendly Hook2 units, the Hook Reveal range adds even more features to their popular fishfinder/chartplotters.
Lowrance has for more than 60 years been a benchmark in marine electronics, with its HDS (High Definition System) units changing the boating and fishing landscape when they were released back in 2008.
The HDS range became hugely popular across the world and still hold a significant market share more than a decade later.
The Hook2 and Hook Reveal units have built on the qualities which made the HDS units such a success, while capitalising on the rapidly developing technology in marine electronics.
Hook Reveal combines the old and the new to deliver powerful performance with proven fish-finding tools including Autotuning Sonar, SideScan and DownScan Imaging.
It also adds FishReveal, which makes fish easier to see by combining the benefits of Lowrance CHIRP sonar and DownScan Imaging on one screen.
Whether fishing a local spot or unfamiliar water users can also find the best fishing areas with preloaded mapping or alternatively map uncharted water – in real time – with Genesis Live.
Navico CEO Knut Frostad said the new units were a game-changer that would improve fishing results for Hook Reveal users.
“Hook Reveal brings a new level of fishfinding performance to the Hook series,” he said.
“We are confident game-changing features like FishReveal and Genesis Live will help Hook Reveal anglers have more success on the water.”
Excitingly, Genesis Live gives anglers the capability to create custom 15cm contour maps of their local lake or uncharted water – in real time – on the screen of Hook Reveal displays, offering a new level of information to fishers about the water underneath them.
Genesis Live maps can also be created and saved on Hook Reveal non-mapping GPS plotters by placing a blank microSD card into the card slot.
Autotuning Sonar means easy use for anglers who will spend more time fishing and less time reworking sonar settings.
It delivers the best sonar image every time by automatically adjusting settings as fishing conditions change.
This makes it easy to pinpoint key fishing areas like lumps and dropoffs and ditches, with built-in high-detail C-MAP mapping.
Optional chart upgrades include C-MAP, C-MAP Genesis, Navionics and more.
Hook Reveal is available in three sizes – five, seven and nine inches.
As was the case with Hook2 there are several options for anglers, who can choose their preferred combination of display size, sonar type and navigation from TripleShot (High CHIRP, SideScan and DownScan Imaging) or SplitShot (High CHIRP and DownScan Imaging) transducers, and mapping chartplotters or non-mapping GPS plotters.
None of the units will cost over a thousand dollars and the range will start at just over $500, making them a very affordable option for many boaters and kayakers.
