What is a fair price for?

9 posts in this topic

I am looking into a used Marcum LX5 and want to get one as a backup. I found one that was new last year and includes the soft case, and two extra batteries that are both new. What would be a fair price to pay for this? I know they hold their value well, I am buying it from a friend and want to give him what it is worth.

You can find new ones for around $500... You figure the batteries for about $20...

So, not sure what I would pay for a new/used one? Offer $425? Up to you?

Fleet had 'em on sale a couple weeks ago for $450. Reeds has them now for $499 which includes a summer transducer. I've been thinking about moving up from my LX 3 to the LX 5, but haven't tried to sell the LX 3 yet.

Can you buy the boat transducers seperate? Should I use the Marcum in the boat or my FL-20?

I would recommend the Fl-20 on the boat and the LX-5 for ice fishing. both are good units and its nice to have an option like that smile

    • What are your guys favorite chatterbaits and conditions to throw these in? Any favorite trailers to use? What type of setup/line do you like to use with them?  Thanks.
    • We had a period in August where the wind wasn't too bad but since sturgeon opened there's been a weekly pattern of fronts coming through on Thursday/Friday and Saturday is WINDY then on Sunday when you're going home it's beautiful. Today and yesterday are no exception either. Although the forecast for this weekend seems to be nice.    With sturgeon coming to an end on Friday I'll probably be fishing muskies. Darn!  
    • Ya I am really in a box on this one, whatever will I do when there are never any good mainstream candidates to vote for?  I'm not sure we could have two worse options than the trash on stage last night. We all deserve better.
    • So who won, crazy Donald or big money republicanish Clinton?
    • So I gather by your lack of gloating that lije the rest of the country you think he lost the debate?  I wasn't interested enough to watch it from gavel to gavel but from what I saw he just got his butt handed to him by the mist vulnerable Democratic candidate in many decades. 
    • Great start for the team.  With a healthy Teddy, AP, and O-line we would have been really excited to be 3-0 having played Green Bay and Carolina.  Being 3-0 without Teddy, AP, and with a patchwork O line is almost unbelievable.   I do still have concerns about the offense.  They D can't win every game for them so the O will need to figure it out sooner or later.  If they can be even an average offense then I like our chances but right now they are far from even being average.
    • Well... The beast didn't suffer lazy eye, no coughing jag, no seizure, no chicken wobble. I guess that constitutes a win for the libs ?? Hahahaha.. Although, I think the beast used all her ammunition. Whereas, with two debates to go, the donald still has a lot of ammo.... Including a few grenades....
    • Trump may want to ask Johnson to be included in the upcoming debates because standing there and having Hillary hand him his butt all night isn't doing him any good.
