Honest Truth

8 posts in this topic

Ok so now that the ice fishing season is over for most of you (not me one more trip to LOW). I want to know those of you that have been using the new Marcums LX 3 and the New Vexilar FL 18 what do you guys think is the better one. I am kind of a Vexilar guy I love the FL 8 so I am kind of leaning towards the FL 18. I know there is another thread the has like 20 pages of info but lets face it I am too lazy to read all 20 pages so let me know what you think. I might be looking to buy one next year and just wanting some opinions. If some of you have used both of them which do you like better? Right now I don't have a flasher on my boat but I am thinking is I get a new one about putting on on so I know the the Vex with the bottom lock is nice in that situation. Most of my fishing is for walleye in depths from 12 feet up to 40 feet. I do also do some panfishing as well though. Give me so info make me wiser so I can make an educated decision. I hear talk the Vexilar is planning a FL 28 is that true or is most of that just talk?

You have got to be kidding me? April Fools was 2 days ago. Go to the expert equipment forum, scroll down the page, and click on page 3 and look at 17 pages and 245 replies on the Marcum vs Vexilar debate

My .02 cents? If you like the vex and are happy with it, stick to the vex. Like they say if it ain't broke don't fix it. smile.gif

Good luck, Lucky

I am looking for people who have used both models and done comparisions for there opinion. I know that everyone that has only a Vex thinks that is the best and everyone who only has a LX3 think theirs are the best. WallEYES I know that there is that thread as I mentioned in my intital posting I have read through a lot of it. The people that I am looking to hear from are someone that has used both models that is the opinion I am looking for. I you want to consider it as an april fool joke go ahead do respond but I don't mean it as one and I am just looking for some useful information.

Look at that page and contact a person called CNY TIM. He lives in Central New York State and have fished with him and others over there. He has both the fl-18 and the Marcum. His e-mail address should be posted on one of those pages. He can give you what you want to hear on both units. Frankly I still have my Micronar/sitex/vexilar fl-8 and am from the old school and not going to change. Personally if you do your time on the ice or open water and learn how to use your electronics, will make you a better fisherman. I know how my old fl-8 works even when a couple of people are around me and my screen is spinning around like a top

    •         Not to worry, when Trump and Ryan get their heads together with this level-headed group, it should be a breeze,,,,    
    •   Well may be instead of buying a few over priced pizza's and eating them while you're sitting on the internet Beoshing about others doing something with their time and money you can get off your atheist ars and go help the folks with a few blanks! Freeking Hypocrite much!
    •   In the World According to Del, taxpayers should feel very guilty for allowing this to happen.              
    • We're not setting any records but managing to decoy a few. Struggling with a new gun that I'm too stubborn to set aside. Just happy to be out at all with what I've been through. 
    •   Dave- I'm as disillusioned as you with regards to our two main parties and I've been known to lurk around the edges of the Libertarian camp. What keeps me from coming all the way in is silly stuff like this.   You're as delusional as an altar boy that thinks the priest wants to be his "friend" if you believe churches are going to fix anything. They never have and they never will.    If churches help the poor, why are there so many poor people?   Here are a couple great examples of christians helping poor people- 1- A group from my community just got back from a mission trip to some central american rathole where 27 men that paid over $2000 apiece to go 1500 miles to build what were more or less 3 garages for some poor community. A little time for sightseeing and photo taking and they are back home with tons of pretty pictures proud of themselves for doing gods work. 2- The wife just bought 3 overpriced crappy pizzas from my niece to fund her New Orleans mission trip. A bunch of kids will raise several thousand dollars from suckers like me, take a nice trip somewhere I never went as a kid, see some sights and paint a couple houses.   Meanwhile, we live in a county where real, abject poverty actually exists. Students of mine go to bed hungry, don't have enough blankets in their house and live in homes one wouldn't leave their dog in.
    • Last week I got my two Helix Mega in. I a lot of people ask me how I install them and how to avoid interference. Follow these tips and interference will be a thing of the past.  
    • You are a confused individual , you might not have jumped on the Apple dumpling gang bandwagon at first but it didnt take you long to sit side by side.And where do you get off saying I'm whining as you spell it,  go back and read the thread again. Snowflake huh? Dave you need to get otta silly town...oh and BTW after limit hit up our group they all left!!
    • You really don't need much insulation under the ground slab, I like to use pole barn ins.[bubble wrap] or 1 inch r board [heat rises],gyp crete works but it is patented and can only be installed by certified and licensed factory contractors. they mix it on sight, it cant be mixed by youre local ready mix provider,as the formula is property of gyp crete.
