Making sense of all the Lowrance models

11 posts in this topic

Having decided to focus my search for new electronics to Lowrance I now find an incredible array of options. LCXs, LMSs.... I get tired thinking about how to crunch all this so need some input.
I basically need dual frequency and I need feature that plots surface temps over the last 10 (or whatever) minutes. I don't need color (I don't think) and question of combing with GPS is posted previously. Is there any straight forward way of sorting through all these models?

Glad you posted that question Cove as I find myself in the same predicament. My last model was the x91 and I'm looking to upgrade for the new boat. Thanks for any info.

Thanks for the input. I am also gathering some comments from the iboat and Florida Sportsman Forums and when I have pulled it all together & made a decision I will post it.

Best thing to do is go to Lowrance's site. You'll have all the models there with all the specs. Makes it so much easier when you have all the info right there. It'll take some reading but then you'll be able to pick a sounder that is right for you with everything your looking for.

The Lowrance site has a "Compare products" feature. Just click on one of the items and the click the compare feature and you will be able to compare the features next to each other.

I also have a LCX15-MT and absolutely love it. One of probably 3 things that I would absolutely not go without on my rig.

Davev and WaveWacker, thanks for your timely comments on the LCX15-MT. I was almost ready to get the LCX19C then thought, for 1000 less I should I get the black and white LCX-15MT. It has less pixels than the 19C but question is how much of a difference would that be? Sounds like you guys are pretty satisfied with the 15-MT.

    • Not a bad idea or product. I just think I'd be worried about the well freezing into the ice. 
    • Had a fun week of fishing...thought I would share some spots!
    • Did 20 qts of pickles last Monday, another 1/2 bushel tomorrow!!
    • Hey everyone has anyone started to pickle yet? Just did 65 quarts of pickles over the weekend. Also did some jars with the carolina repear pepper. Can't wait to try them.
    • I like the Wal-Mart corn to!
    • When is the date unsold bear tags go onsale?
    • I may try smoked rough fish on my bait this year. Anyone tried smoke fish on the bait pile?
    • Does anyone eat or use mooneyes? I caught one in the St. Croix today. Nothing else, it was interesting fish!
    • I hope to take a trip to ND this season, maybe they will get first ice before we do.
    • Hey everybody. An FYI. There is something new coming. Should be out around October, 2017 and available for on-line purchase.   If you google : ICE WELL Live Well ICAST 2017 The video of the product roll-out at ICAST 2017 in July, 2017 will pop up.   Also you can go to the product page. See : ICEWELLLiveWell.com. The page has a separate video to view also.                        The product is being manufactured from a custom blend non-buoyant polypropylene with impact modifiers to withstand extreme cold without cracking. The product will sit within 99% of all manufactured 5-gallon buckets for transport to and from the fishing spot. It is designed to fit within a drilled 8 or 10 inch ice hole. When in the drilled hole it will fill allowing you to throw your catch in the ICE WELL Live Well. No more throwing them on the ice or in the bucket to die, freeze or turn to slime. At the end of the day, pull it, place back in the bucket for transport home. No more frozen fish and easy handling. It's going to sell for around $19.99 plus shipping. The listed page will undergo changes before roll out that will allow purchase direct on-line. This is a creation by a Nebraska ice fisherman for ice fishermen. Made in the USA. Made with recycled materials. "Respect the Resource".
