The Microcat HD represents a huge development in Angling Technics Microcat technology. It incorporates all the changes to previous Mircocats, and more. The water jet propulsion system has been replaced with a propeller which, when combined with the 12Ah heavy duty batteries, not only gives the boat an incredible running time of over two hours but also ensures the boat is up to 10% faster than previous Microcats. This enables you to quickly redistribute bait to the location of the fish. The boat is fast, efficient, and quiet.
The Microcat HD sits higher out of the water than previous Microcat systems thanks to a redesigned hull. This means that the hoppers are well clear of the waterline reducing the chance of water leaking into the bait. The Microcat HD features two hoppers, which can be opened independently for spreading bait over a wide area or simultaneously to distribute a huge amount of bait in one location. A controllable spotlight on the front of the boat aids viability at night and in low light conditions. The Mircocat HD is compatible with echo sounder technology, so if you decide to upgrade your bait boat with a fish finder you dont have to change boats. The 2.4 GHz FM 4 channel system reduces the risk of interference with other anglers also using bait boats. Weighing only 9kg, the Microcat HD is a great tool for anglers who like to keep on the move.
Bait boats really do represent huge advances in angling technology, and the Microcat HD is the perfect bait boat for the moderns and technologically minded angler. If youre looking to be able to distribute bait quickly, effectively, and accurately, then there really is no other tool for the job. Angling Technics has been producing bait boats for over 20 years, and the Microcat HD is the culmination of those two decades of bait boat experience.
Bluesounder Echo System,
Bluesounder is a Bluetooth BLE linked echo sounder created by Fulcrum Designs specifically for Angling Technics baitboats. Baitboats ordinarily take baits and line to distant locations with the help of remote echo sounders to find optimum locations.
Existing echo sounders for baitboats rely on custom designed displays to provide visual depiction of the bed of fishing waters. Bluesounder interprets the existing radio transmissions from these baitboats and passes them to an iPhone, iPod or iPad to display a much more detailed image with choice of colour schemes.
The display can be frozen, swiped back in time so that the last few minutes of depth profile can be reviewed and the units, speed and zoom levels can all be changed to suit the user and conditions. A radio transmission strength (from the baitboat indicator and Bluesounder battery condition meter are present to provide all the information you need to survey your venue and find that perfect spot.
Compatible with the following; iPhone 4S, iPhone 5S, iPhone 5C, iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus, iPhone 6S, iPhone 6S Plus, iPod Touch (5th gen), iPad 3rd generation, iPad 4th generation, iPad mini, iPad mini 2, iPad mini 3, iPad Air, iPad Air 2, Etc.
