    I have never used it .....but I can say that you will be very limited in finding a locator that uses Sonde mode ......some vivax's have that mode .

    There are some die hard rycom users out there.That rycom locator can get the job done no doubt.Everyone has their favorite locator tho.I guess it mainly depends on what you are comfortable with.I think you will find a majority of radiodection users on this forum.If i had to pick between rycom and radiodetection i would get radiodetection,if that was my first locator purchase.If you have already purchased a main locator and you want to try something new,get the rycom.
