What's the difference between these two Marcum VX-1 Pro?

Recommended Posts

Can someone tell me the difference between these two marcums. I know they are the same name with a different case. I know the gray case is old and the red case is the new one. I've read both the description and can't seem to find the difference. I just bought it two months ago from FF on sale for my husband because he's starting to steal my Humminbird . I've been waiting to get it on the ice. I'm very excited, but I don't know if I should've bought the one with the red case.

While I don't know for sure, I think the mount and bag are probably the only differences. If the gray one sits upright in a 5 gal bucket (smaller base), I think it would be beneficial to most.

The link didn't come up but I'm guessing you are looking at an older unit before the VX-1 got the red case like its big brothers. Used to be the VX-1 had a gray case and the LX-3 had a red case as did the LX-5. Same unit only in a more fashionable case. wink

600 watt VX-1 didn't used to come with any Gray case, just the black holder. The Gray case had to be purchased separately ( I know, I had to do this)

1000 watt VX-1 Pro they started out including the Gray case.

This years 600W VX-1 model now comes with the Red case like in the FF add.

I don't know what color case the 1000W VX-1 Pro is coming with this year, probably the red one as well.

    • Pumper don't forget to register your bird.
    • Had 3 long beards come out gobbl8ng and running but not to me.  Had them all fired up but they obviously had another destination in mind.
    • I didn’t know grackles fished either.  Interesting. 
    • Was checking back to see you with a bird pic @Borch
    • So this is not a new thing!  Interesting.  I keep finding more and more complex behavior in so many of these "dumb" animals!  So many of them are anything but dumb.
    • When I was a kid, we used to have a pond in our yard. We would keep fish and minnows in there. The grackles would clean in out! We had to resort to putting a cover over it.
    • Last Thursday on a visit to my sister in Rock Rapids IA, we made a circuit through the Island Park there.  At the low dam just past the former railroad bridge which is now a walking path we saw a group of grackles fishing at the edge of the white water where it ran against the rocks at the shore line.  There probably were a dozen or so all told moving back and forth and some on the rocks at the other shore line.  In something like half an hour or less we saw various of the birds bring out minnows and eat them on the shore to a total of at least 8.  They also contested for the better fishing spots and tried to horn in on other birds' catches;   they would fly out to quite a bit up on shore with a catch to eat it there. I never expected to see grackles fishing.  I never heard of that before, but then it wouldn't be the first time I didn't know about something relatively common.
    • I've seen deer there, too.  I go by there on my way to work about 3:30 am S S & M.
    • Now they're gobbling...  seem to be getting a little closer.
