I have the TackTick gear and love it... even with their price premium.
It is rather sad that they charge a $400 premium for the wireless system, but the Raymarine system is $116 more than the TackTick T033 system and requires more work to install. If you went with the T033 system, you could always add a second display later...
One thing I do like about the TackTick wind instrument display is that it can switch between normal mode and closehauled mode. The closehauled mode only shows ±60˚, rather than the full 360˚.
BTW, the reason I went for the whole system, even though I had both the ST60 tridata and wind, is that the wind system was constantly giving me problems. I had replaced the cable up the mast once and the transducer once, and still had issues with it. BTW, the speed and depth/temp transducers are compatible between the TackTick and the ST60.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
