What were the old colors Marcum used on their flasher?

Recommended Posts

The older Marcums (and other brands) used Two LED lights to create three colors. That being said, two lights making three colors tended to blend together and definition was limited. TC or True color, is three LED lights with three colors making it easier to tell the difference between bottom and fish etc...

Anyone else...

Brianh is correct...but colors were made with two lights and now three lights...(from what I have been hearing/told)

LOL RR56. .I need some of whatever your having as my LX-3 does not have the upgrade but I just checked to see if the tooth fairy had dropped by and changed the colours for me but to no avail as they still are yellow,orange and red but my LX-5 on the other hand has the yellow, green,and red you speak of though . wink.gif

My LX-3 is three years old. I sent it back to correct transducer problems, then paid another $50 to update with True Color.

I still have problems differentiating some of the colors, and I again seem to require substantial gain in order to pick up my sinker. Even when my sinker is visible, the minnow flashes intermittently... but I can live with that.

I'm fishing in heavy traffic areas, and I sometimes think that interference with other nearby sonar units may be a problem. But I don't really see any marked improvement when I punch the 6 different interference settings...

I've often wondered if Marcum offered a comprehensive tutorial, like Lawrence puts out for its units?

Thanks...

    • Used the impulse mayflys today, the fish were not biting well. I ended up catching a few nice gills on the mayflys but more fish with  the demon/ waxie combo. I want to try some lighter line with the horizontal jig /impulse mayfly and see what happens. Maybe 5 years ago I moved away from winter panfish fishing. I am so glad I am back catching panfish, a very enjoyable way to pass a winter morning!
    • 13 years ago I had my heart set on a Lund, I went with an Alumacraft because I could rig it out nicer with the money I was allotted by my better half at the time..........no regrets.
    • Ive owned 7 Lunds and don't see another one in the future.  Also been looking at the A-crafts.  The 205 trophy.  Have a 13' Lund Tyee 1800 now.  Good boat but its too light for big water.  Really like the fit and finish of the Aluma's.  The black windshield trim is sharp and the carpet on the top of the gunwale is also nice.  Really impressed.  Not gonna take out a mortgage to buy a glass boat either.
    • I’ve never done anything with mine. I store it standing up and in the fall change the oil if I remember. Haven’t had any issues yet. 
    • I had problems with my 02. I found that the plug on the truck side going to the plug at the bumper was corroded. I hope that made sense I cleaned it up and put dielectric grease on it.    
    • I would put some Seafoam in the ga.........................  oh never mind. 😁
    • I rode the trails around big lake today, mostly to get used to the new trails. trails were awesome, they must have groomed last night, rode to becker and back and some other playing around. all in all I put on 42 miles today. I will ride into the orrock area tomorrow. don't ride that much around here anymore, mostly aitkin co. now. looks like the trails around the sand dunes look good, I will give it a shot tomorrow.
    • I'm guessing not much. I know the one pounders threads can start to rust in a humid environment, but am not sure if that would be an issue if still attached? I know nothing about propane augers,  is there an oil tank to keep the engine lubed? And if so, does it need to be refreshed or drained every once in a while? It's not like you need to worry about bad gas gumming up the system.   Mostly,  I'm just replying to give you something to read TJ. Hopefully somebody else will chime in with more knowledge.  
    • Possibility of moisture getting into them after washing the stove top and around the burners? My wife is good at that.
    • I get it, like the woman in the commercial. You are clever.
