New RT-9 Marcum is here!

4 posts in this topic

Hi Guys,

   I was just out on Marcum's page. It looks like the RT-9 is here. This thing looks awesome! I love the fact of mapping, sonar & a 9" screen together. I wonder how long the battery life is on this unit? You have an internal battery plus a 12 volt battery too.

Slick looking unit but that price tag is no joke. 

Rt9 unit $1200 no transducer
Ice ducer $350
Ice pack $150
Camera module $550

Has some pretty nice technology but honestly isn't anything too new to fishing (maybe just ice fishing).  Don't get me wrong, i'm a diehard Marcum guy (LX7, LX5, and two cameras) but this technology has been out there for a while and Marcum was just the first one to mass market it towards ice fishing.  If I was to drop this kinda coin I would just rather get a Lawrance HDS unit and use it year round on hard and soft water.

I'll stick to my lx7 (possibly upgrade it to lx9) and use the $10 navionics app on my phone.

Sweet baby Jesus.  I'd quit ice fishing before I spent over $2k on a flasher/camera/GPS.

Agreed! :crazy:

    • 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
