Hey there,
Welcome to FM.com.

Go to the Equipment-expert info forum.
There is a lengthy thread on this topic called Marcum lx-3 test report.

Have fun reading,
Nels

Both the FL18 and Marcum seem to be good units. I am in a similar position as you having a FL8 already. I am planning on getting an FL18 when I upgrade since the transducers for the FL8 and FL18 are interchangeable. I am also more comfortable with the red, orange and green colors from all the time using my FL8. Vexilar is a solid company that has been around for a long time. I have had excellent responses every time I have contacted them by phone or email. I use my FL8 in the summer alongside of my Lowance LCX X15MT sonar and can have them both on next to each other without interference in either unit. I am afraid that with the higher output power of the Marcum unit I would get interference on my LCX X15MT. Again both are good units, but I just think it makes sense to upgrade to a FL18 if you have a FL8 and plan to keep the FL8 after you purchase the FL18. Bruce
