Marcum Technologies is basically the same group of engineers that started both Zercom (before it was sold to Techsonic parent of Humminbird), and Aqua-vu before it was sold. I have a Colorpoint which quite a few people don't like, but I have had great sucess with mine. I am planning to add an LX3 and an OVS 500 camera this season. The LX3 has not had much exposure in actual use as of yet, but if it performs the way the engineers are planning it will be an amazing device. The OVS camera is the only one that has been shown to work in stained water (LOW and Rainy) your not gonna see 10' but it is much improved over the current offerings from others. Being a technology guy I tend to play with the new stuff, it gives me something to do when I am not on the water (or in the water). Some people don't like being a ginny pig, I guess its second nature to me.

I contacted Marcum to see if I could get different transducers, narrow beam or dual beam but no answer yet. I'm not going to wait to much longer, or its going to be a FL-18.

Im a FL8 owner now and it has been great for the ten years that Ive had it but Im thinking of upgrading.Ive read all the great reviews on the FL18 and Ive heard lots of great things on Vexilars repair policies so Im leaming that way! BUT Marcum has the features that I really want,but if there service stinks I dont want the unit!

Sorry Rick, New to the site (but I have ordered an ice saw, ice busters and the big dipper already). I should have read the policies on posting web addresses. Not trying to advertise and I completely understand about the cost to run the site. I will send you a DS3 to make up, Or maybe some DSL ;-)

Too many years posting on too many sites ;-)

    • The past week has had me having multiple close calls and missing a brute at 45 yards.  Tonight I talked my dad to give it another try and there were birds in the field when we got there.  Birds ended up leaving as we tried to sneak in.  A short 20 minutes later they were back and we watched and worked the big group of toms and hens for more than 2 hours before we got one to commit.  Dad shot him with his 20 gauge at 48 yards,(this thing shoots an awesome pattern).  The 3 year old was down and only flopped a few times.   Nice 1+ inch spurs, 10" beard and heavy.  A good evening for sure!
    • Sorry to disappoint guys, but this tom was not my first bird of the season. Apparently that's part of the rules. The score won't count towards the team. I don't have any measurements for the jake I shot so we will have a zero from me.    At least my freezer is full. 
    • Way to  go 1957 !! Congrats!!
    • sugar is not a drug. 
    • Another good day today out on Superior ,,,, Had my first double and triple in the new rig today ,,, the day didnt start out with perfect weather but the fishing more then made up for it ,,, The mud  covers a lot of water but fishing the tea  colored water and edges of the mud paid off ,,, the cohos grew 5 inches  from eating this years smelt,,,, had some go 23 inches today 
    • Say no to drugs, like sugar.  Yes, sugar is a drug.
    • I won't be able to post the scores for this week until maybe Wed. so if someone else wishes to do so feel free to do it. In fact for the entire summer season I'm going to be pretty much hit and miss. So don't count on me the lake is calling and I have no computer there. My scores will drop like a rock unless luck prevails.
    • That should make things interesting
