This upgrade to true-color is well worth the money IMO. Rather than the two-color system out there, which blends red and yellow to make green, the Marcum true-color three LED system provides sharper, more defined colors. You'll be happy with the change, and it's fast too! I had mine back in a week when I sent it in two years ago.

I agree that you will love it, I bought mine with true color already on it and the crisp colors on it are like night and day compared to the older ones.

I never bothered with the upgrade at the time nor will I likely in the future because I find it easier on my eyes in the dark although I also have an LX-5 that has the TC . My bride uses the LX-5 with TC more than I do and prefers the TC she says but I think it's just the fancy red case it comes in that makes her prefer it .LOL

You know, in my opinion, there could only be one color and I'd do just as well with it. think about it. do you really pay attention to the color. I work my jig and watch when the fish is getting close and wait for the hit. just because the color changes to red does not mean he is biting!

I think the 3 color system helps me tell what the bottom is like, how hard, how muddy, presence of weeds, etc. It's especially good at showing differences between holes.

    • 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.
