Marcum LX-5

9 posts in this topic

I keep reading about a update on the lx-5, what is it and how old before they did not need it, last years model? I use a vex fl-18 but looking to add another and thought i would maybe try a marcum or maybe the new humminbird.

I also run a vexilar and have been thinking about trying a

lx-5 or hummingbird ice 55 this year. I have not heard of any updates to the lx-5 other than the new ones put out 2500 watts instead of 2000.

You are correct on that ec30-06, the wattage is a change in the model this year. fishon68 if you search lx5 you will get all kinds of answers on this product, the watt change, and much more.

Was wondering if the "old" LX-5's can be sent in for the new updates myself ?

If you feel you must have the upgraded features, you may be better off selling yours and buying a new one with the upgrades.

I think I read that they stopped doing the LX-3 true colore upgrades, if that is true that I would be suprised that they would provide the LX5 upgrade option.

I also have a vex and was deciding on trying a LX-5 for the last few weeks. Today I decided and ordered one. I have a trip next week planned, so hopefully I'll get to "test" it grin

Just an FYI.. I called and emailed Marcum on this issue. The said they only stopped doing the tc upgrade until new parts arrive after the ice season. Next spring they will resume the tc upgrades.

I got the same response when asking about the TC upgrade (LX-3) last month, I found that to be an odd answer that "parts" were not available until after the current ice season. I think the upgrades are not a priority at this time.

    • Good question, why didn't they find any more?  Did those two infected deer parachute in?  Were they dropped by a helicopter?  I find it fascinating they could get as far as Lanesboro and they only find two out of thousands.  Like I said, they're bad at conspiracy.    Policing the borders?  How about a billboard, a radio ad, or a twitter campaign?  How about having the highway patrol pull over anyone with hooves or antlers sticking outta their truck box or laying on a flatbed coming across the border on the interstate?    My wealth and land ownership shouldn't disqualify me from questioning the DNR.  It used to be a staple of a free country to question your government.  Somehow now it's more important to kneel before the all knowing DNR and take whatever they want to shove in our mouths?  If this is real science and a real mitigation effort, let's have a discussion about it.  If the DNR wants to stop this spread, why are they not welcoming with open arms feedback like mine when it comes to import enforcement, and an effective PR campaign?  Cause guess what fella, lots of deer got hauled home from all kinds of places infected with CWD by uninformed folks that are going to cut up those critters and throw the brains and spinal cords out in the woods at home.    So yeah, this is either a giant hoax, or the DNR has no idea what the hell they're doing. 
    • I just checked on the fans that I bought, there 4.7 inchs sq and 1.25 thick. I thought they were 5 inch thick but I was wrong. They are 110v and I think I will put one inside on the bottom plate and see how it works. And I like where you have your fishingstar.
    • Slowly getting the outside buttoned up 
    • Yea I had that idea too 
    • I saw three or four huts in the little wet area in the lake vadnais area just off country road F.   But they would probably get upset if you set traps there...    right next to the new path that goes south along the east side of the lake. 
    • In the olden days, pigs were fed garbage.  Trichinosis was a problem.  Then laws were passed so any garbage fed to pigs had to be cooked first.  Problem went away.   According to CDC there hasn't been a case of trichinosis except from eating wild game like bear meat for many years.  
    • From a quick google search it looks like waveinn.com or the bay of e might be your best bets, if you don't want to buy from shimano.
    • Does anyone know of a place you can get spare Shimano Sedona spools?? I run braid in the summer and don't want to run it on the ice.
