Bottom Line's Tournament Leader 1200 Makes Any Boat a Fishing Boat

(Wednesday, January 05,2000 - ) The president of Computrol, Charlie Scott, made the directive to his staff perfectly clear. "I want a fish finder that every angler in America can afford to install on their boat. It has to have all the same features of any of the Bottom Line line sonar units, but at a price no one can walk away from." The staff of engineers at the Meridian, Idaho, facility rolled their eyes, moaned and groaned, then went to work. The result: Bottom Line's new Tournament Leader 1200. Standard is the patented SideFinder® technology, available only on Bottom Line built fish finders. The 3.3 inch by 2.4 inch display with over 1,000 pixels per square inch, can provide a multi-screen picture of two side views out to 120 feet and a bottom view of down to 240 feet. The screen also provides digital readings for depth in feet or meters, temperature, low battery indicator and optional boat speed. Fish detected are identified for depth.

Overall dimensions are 6.5 inches by 5.5 inches by 2 inches and is installed with a gimball mount bracket. The Tournament Leader 1200, like all Bottom Line products, carries a one year full warranty and a limited lifetime service policy.

Bottom Line, the technological leader in sonars, is a product by Computrol, Inc. of Meridian, Idaho. For more information on the Leader or other Bottom Line products, write Computrol at 499 East Corporate Drive, Meridian, Idaho 83642 or call (208) 887-1000.
