Best deep drop ducer for Garmin 76xx xsv 800'-1700'

Size:  60.7 KBI now have everything I need to install my 7608XSV/GT51m-tm this weekend!

Next purchase will be a 1KW CHIRP transducer for deep dropping, 800' to 1700' for Tiles, Swords and such. What are the better transducers available for the 76xx xsv's for this and what makes them better?
Should I consider/is it possible to add a black box and start looking to 2-3kw chirp?
Keep in mind that the duel frequency ducers wont work as my GT51m-tm already occupies the sole 12 pin connection.

Thanks!

That's my plan. Gonna get the GSD-26 and the CM599LM ducer. They claim it reads to 10,000 ft, (doubt it) but sword/tilefish fishing should be no problem.

I have the GSD26 and the CM599LH and I can read bottom in 4000ft+ easily. Its pretty incredible. Make sure the the transducer is mounted properly with no turbulence

Anyone running the b175? low, high or medium? I have heard good reports on other sites about the B175m, but no one on the B175L.

Have not looked into the GSD26 and related ducers yet.

b175m

I just installed 51TH and a b175m with a 7607. Took it out last weekend testing but didnt get that deep. I got the 175m for deeper water and I was told that it would mark bottom at 1700ft. I might have gone for the L version if I was to do it again because the 600kw chirp on the 51th looks to be pretty good. We got out to around 400ft of water and I couldnt tell much difference between the two at that depth. I did some asking around on THT and these guys made it sound like with a 1KW chirp that marking "targets" like bait or fish on the bottom at 1700ft was wishful thinking with either of those transducers (175L or 175M) - so I went with the M for better resolution.

I have the b175l and can see bait on the bottom in 1200 ft. Haven't tried any deeper yet except 9000 feet where it didn't work at all!

I fished with JHP3435 last month to 1300'. He has a Simrad NSS EVO2 Paired with a B150M 300 watt and it marked bottom at 1300' and I am pretty sure I saw a target or two on bottom. We caught tile in 925' and did not see targets when we were hooking up.

Neatest thing was at Falcon jigging for Tunas we could watch the bait as it dropped and could stop it at the to/middle bottom of the bait ball, it was very cool!

I can't wait to get the setup that I currently have installed!

That makes me think that this 1kw b175m might be better than I am expecting. I hope so. Im about to order one of those pelagic outfitter specials with the t1000 and start deep dropping. Cant wait to give it a go.
