I actually like that they have replaced the metal handle with rope. The base is also a good accessory.
YES. of course that bucket system includes, NO BUCKET. So, now we are at 128 + 40 = $168 for a fully configured bucket...

Have you used your clear bottom bucket to see in the water?

Yes, both the new one from last year, and one I made over 12 years ago with 5200 and the HD bucket.

But, if that was a reference to the Erie Canal visability Point taken, the see bottom bucket has had no NY experience.
It has raised many a conch.

I buy my buckets for about 65 bucks. But they throw in five gal of Rotella oil for free.

Wasn't aimed at the Erie.

conch story: So, I find myself in a local conch boat, 14' of fiberglass disaster with a new high HP Yamaha twist grip. This is about an hour after I give up looking for conch. I know they are there; but my clear bottom BUCKET and expensive polarized glasses fail me. This local felt sorry for me, so I took him up on his offer. We are racing at maybe 20kts across water over a fathom deep. Two natives in the boat, a spotter and a diver. Now, conch in these parts are disguised. The shells have a covering on them just like the bottom, and the only giveaway might be a trail in the sand, but it ain't much. The driver points out a couple live ones at 25kts. I'm floored by the ability of this guy to find a live conch at this speed without sunglasses, without BUCKET in 8 feet of water. anyway, sometimes its not the gear!

That looks like a $3 bucket with a $37 sticker on it, to me.
