Question about Marcum LX3

5 posts in this topic

I have owned an LX3 for a couple yrs now and sometimes when I look at the screen of my buddies FL18 his seems like the bars that mark his bait and the fish are more solid than what I am looking at with my LX3. When I jig, my line appears more solid then when the bait is sitting still etc. When a few fish are on the screen they almost blend together, sometimes 2 small fish seem like 1 single bigger fish(I suppose they might just be that close to each other). Is this normal? It just seems like my buddy dosen't experience this as much as I do.

My lines are solid and crisper than the Vex, and if two fish are really close to each other it will look like 1 single big fish.

No experience with the 3 but my 5 is alot more crisp than my partners FL-20 and 10x more crisp than the old 18 the wife had.

have had my LX3 for about five years and not had problems. Marcum did change the colors a couple years back and renamed it the LX3 TC [TC for true color.] made the colors brighter and changed one to green I believe. The older models the two colors do seem to blend a little sometimes making it harder to see. Try turning the gain up a little see if that helps. usally I can run my one 1 or less. Also running two units side by side you will get a little feedback causing distortion

opsirc, mine is a TC. I also rarely run one side by side. When I do run mine side by side with a vex it is definitely easier to see mine.

    • Put an L behind his name with the exact same contributions and Carlos would be silent.
    • I understand everything you say.  I'm just sorry you think anything you post is intelligent or has an original thought.  But hey if you have the need to feel important do I have a job for you.
    • I put those in there so that you COULD understand what I was saying and you confirmed it works. Sometimes we just have to try harder to communicate at a level you are comfortable with. 
    • Del, i do believe the chiropractic approach to healing an injury is significantly better then painkillers and muscle relaxers. Which may create the need to visit MD again to get something to loosen the stools from the pain meds. He's now billed for multiple office visits and services, you know, running a business. Stop being so naive.
    • I'm thinking the same thing.  
    • He is so outside that he only managed like 18 million in contributions in 24 hours from the biggest names in the political and financial elite but yet you think he is an outsider. Jets owner, Hollywood producer, Wall Street titans helped drive Trump’s $18M day http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2016/09/29/jets-owner-hollywood-producer-wall-street-titans-helped-drive-trump-s-18m-day.html Looks like a real outsider to me lol.
    • I would say 1x4 is over kill for furring strips aside from where bunks and cabinets are located and 1x1 is under sized for the studs.  Personally I would run 1x2 to have enough room for insulation.  Couple bucks extra up front. It saves you from hearing your furnace as often and spending as much down the road on propane.  
    • I use 1x4's as furring strips, which will give me another 3/4".  Then having it spray foamed. My last house I used rigid foam boards for insulation in the walls and ceiling.  I've never had anything spray foamed before, so if that's not enough let me know what you think.
    • Sounds like just another party hack blaming others for the fact they are fielding a terrible candidate instead of just owning up to the fact.
