Very impressed by the price and quality. Now just need for the spring to come and put it to use!
It doesn't automatically figure out the Culling but it does tell you what rank each fish is. So you can figure it out pretty quickly.
One other thing I noticed just playing around is: to delete a fish you just hit select the # and press Del. With there was a confirm or double tap required.
Not a deal breaker but something.

It'll be interesting to see how you like it over the long haul, and how well it holds up to weather, abuse, etc. Let us know!

I have the Rapala one it has been my go to for the past few years. I do really like the readout very easy to see day or night. When I saw the Snail Trail unit I liked the button layout a bit more and the handle vs bottle opener at the top.

Both units have that same battery cover door the I had to tape shut on the Rapala because it just slides open at times. It will be interesting to have both and compare readouts.
