Marcum LXi

10 posts in this topic

Thinking about buying the new Marcum lxi for the upcoming ice fishing season, is anybody familiar with this handheld depth finder?

Welcome to Fishing Minnesota safe ice!

I have a LX-i on its way and I'm anxious to use it. It has 1,000 watts of power and has a digital receiver. The battery has a 20 hour life span. It has a 12 degree cone and can read up to 299 feet in depth. I think it will save some time locating structure and desired depths/drop-offs.

Good Fishin,
Matt

It's also supposed to read water and outdoor air temps isn't it? Think I'll be picking one up real soon.

safe ice, first of all Welcome to FM!

I'd be interested as well in hearing more about these units. They definitely look like they would be good for checking depths more quickly for drops, humps, etc. I'm curious as to how well they pick up a signal through the ice as compared to an LX-3?

Thanks Dan & MJ5, this forum is great.
I'm very happy with the Marcum LX3 so I'm sure the LXi will not be disappointing. Hopefully we can try them out real soon.

MJ, FYI the LXi has 2500 watts of power. It comes in its own case. Its waterproof and it floats. Can't wait to get one...I'll be more efficient drilling holes because I'll find the spot beore I drill. I don't think you have to get the ice wet so I'll stay drier too.

How does MarCum Lxi compare with Polar Vision or Vexilar LPS-1? I am going to pick one up, and need recommendations.

Just used the LXi last weekend. Found my spot without drilling a pile of holes. Seems to save time and energy.

The Lxi can read the temp too? Cool! That's a pretty nice feature to have. 2500 watts of power!!! In that little thing? how? I am heading the the Marcom HSOforum to check this thing out.

Give us a report if you get one! Anxious to hear about it from a first time user.

    • The US doesn't have state controlled media at all. Well, didn't have. Now we have Bannon and Breitbart in the White House, and of course at Trump's press conference there was only a single reserved seat: front and center for Breitbart.   As far as psychological manipulation: you are subjected to it daily, but usually for commercial purposes. You can easily go the whole day without seeing anything politics related, but good look avoiding advertising for a day.
    • Worst buy I ever bought. I sold it the next week. I like 13 products but not this line of products
    • jobs and better paying jobs.   that's about it for me.  Sure there are some perks, but I'd give it up in a second if I could come close to matching my income in Grand Rapids. What sort of field are you in?   Anymore it's all indeed, monster, or some sort of online service.  Maybe a recruiter can place you in something, but it might be a sucky job.  I went to a recruiter a few years ago and they could put me a job in a few days, but it was sort of on the edge of my field and the job sucked.  Still, if I was in a pinch, I'd do that in a heartbeat over sacking groceries.   Nobody reads the newspaper and C-list is for sex work and scams.
    • Thanks for the advice, we do know the areas that we like have liked in the past. Cities is a vague reference as most people up here call everywhere down there the cities. We would be looking at the west metro area or nw suburb area.   Job on is the big thing right now ideally my wife could take a few years off to raise our boys as typically the "cities" pay is more than up here.. I have been looking but what is the best way? Indeed? Newspaper? Clist?   We we are a good distance in a way but we are close to our families. When we get company we get them for 3 solid days. Also once we had our twins it was more so they could see there cousins, aunts, uncles, and grandparents more often than 1-2 times a year.
    • The gdp is right around 18 Trillion Dollars.   Ten years of that, including even a little nominal growth is north of $200 Trillion.   So you are talking about 4.5% over ten years.     And that is assuming that these economists are able to forecast accurately.   We had other economists telling us about the "multiplier" where a dollar of government spending increased GDP by way more than a dollar.     I didn't believe them either.
