MarCum LX-3tc question


Recommended Posts

I purchased a MarCum Lx-3tc at the show this year without researching it. They salesmen there told me when a fish is near your bait the flasher will beep of course he showed me this in demo mode. I am wondering if this is true and if it is how do you turn the sound off when there is a hot bite? Btw I got the Unit for $339.00 with a free tackle pack.

Like was already said. it only beeps when the unit is in the demo mode. it will not beep when actully using it. I believe this was built into the demo mode on all the VX1's, LX3's (both NON TC and TC's), and the LX5's.

I use to have a very old Hondx (sp) which was the early Vex which did beep when a fish came by. Drove me nuts and shut it off for the short time I kept the thing before getting a new FL18. I did just pick up a LX 3 off the "list" last night for $125 bucks from a guy that was 81 years old and not going to ice fish anymore. We'll see how it does against the FL18 for $125. One may need to go after the test! wink

Man, I agree a beep would be annoying. Perhaps even more annoying that the patented "vexilar buzz".
What! The sounds of Ice fishing. Vex buzz, Mr Heater hiss, ice augers, snowmobiles, trucks with plows, Gens running, and a gang of guys playing Pout ball out side on the ice! Oh ya their all good! wink
