I have a Marcum LX-1 sonar and I am having a hard time distinguishing hard bottom from soft bottom with the unit. I am color blind so using the colors to determine bottom types is useless. Any suggestions?

This is a great question, because I have the same problem with being color blind. My solution has been using my clearwater classic. It has a gray scale and not color. So over the years I have learned how to see what the bottom hardness is by turning up the sensivity. It will grayscale the hardness very clearly then. I've been reluctant to go out and spend big money on a new locator for that exact reason. I like black and white. The real nice thing about my clearwater is how sensitive it is even in real deep water. So if anyone has a good answer I'm interested as well.
