      How to create an @mention - Click Here   07/16/2015

      You can use the @mention aspect whenever you want someone to be notified about a post or let them know you are talking about them. Type the @ symbol type in a couple "lowercase" letters pause then once the names pop-up either select or keep typing in letters to narrow down the list until you get the @mention name you are looking for. You can play a game so members can see how it works. If you want to practice or If your name has been @mentioned below you should see it in your notifications (upper right) and you then have to @mention one or two members who haven't been mentioned inthe comments section below. Let's see how long we can keep this going. Anyone who duplicates a name that has already been @mentioned loses. This is the first group to be @mentioned to get the ball rolling: @Borch @Scott K @Corey Bechtold @Matt Johnson @mrklean @eyeguy 54 @Finns @IceHawk @MarkB @Cliff Wagenbach @Wayne Ek

Zercom color point repair?

Recommended Posts

Guest

As a recent member of the Forum I have read with interest of the pro's and Con's of the Zercom color point. I have one that is two years old that is in need of some repair. I have learned that factory repair is available for $98. I would appreciate comments from anyone that has had problems and what they did. Are they worth repairing? Or has anyone had experience with factory repair? Does factory repair eliminate some of the earlier problems that the units had?
Thanks, Makky

CNY Tim Thanks for the reply. Even though Zercom was bought out by Humminbird the units are still factory repaired at Techsonic Ind. in Eufaula, Alabama. That is the same repair source on my original Zercom manual. So from what I have read on the talk forum they have had plenty of experience. From what I have heard their main problem was with transducers. Externally it looks like a high quality unit.
Thanks Makky

I have a Colorpoint, sent it in end of last season, Humminbird extended the warrenty and fixed it fine, the lights would go dim and would only get bright very rarely. I was more then happy with thier service,I know they had allot of problems with them, that's why they quit making them.
Is $98 a good deal? Is it cheaper to fix it or spend $300 plus for a new Vex or Murcom? I love the Colorpoint but it's the only flasher I have ever used on the ice.
I guess this is something you gotta figure for youreself.
Good luck

cwmn - You don't have to spend $400 on a MarCum if you put your colorpoint on hsolist, mine is already up to $202.50 with 4 days to go...
If you like your colorpoint like I did you will absolutely adore the MarCum. I have had it out since first ice Dec. 6 th and it has continue to perform flawlessly.

1.) I am not a slave to technology.
2.) I will not buy new technology until it is on the market 2 or 3 years. Witness the Colorpoint problems and the FL-18 problems.
3.) My Colorpoint should last until the virtual reality fish finder comes on the market... LOL
