Fish them side bye side Red and let us in on your opinion on overall performance.

As they are new this season to the general public the early reports will be watched hard.

I'm reserving my final evaluations on them tell I get a day and a night on the ice with one and see how they shake out.

So is the Hummingbird lineup replacing the Marcum lineup?

No, Humminbird is a seperate company. Marcum was purchased by Nature Vision and is now part of their line-up of products (Aqua-vu). Marcum is still available in flashers and cameras.

Like you say, it's loaded with features and looks great.

Like the others say, not many people have had a chance to use them on the ice yet. I've seen them in demos and they look really good. I'm looking forward to seeing one in action on the ice.

bigred, can you specify on your "pretty good deal"? The lowest I have seen them is $438 online.

BR,

I used one of the proto models a couple times last year. I really liked it - the colors, the zoom, the clarity. If I didn't have other units, I would be all over it. But, if you already have a fully function Vex or Marcum and you're not a technophile, you won't gain much. It's still bottom, fish, bait.

Let us know your review once the ice season gets rolling. I think you will enjoy that unit.
