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...

    • Britt: Do you know where to view the Ruffed Grouse Society Invitational Hunt in Grand Rapids MN annual harvest statistics by year? Thanks.
    • Watch their interference disappear when you shut your marcum off 🤨
    • Rick was going to start that topic right after this one slowed down! 😅
    • Don't be fooled by stainless cables. Take proper care of them and change them every few years.Do your pivots every couple years too.
    • Might as well get augers in on this too!
    • Just counted 14 of them under and on my feeder. Cardinals, Nuthatches, Juncos, and asst sparrows came in and they chased them all away. It's like one stands guard and chase everything off. Sorry guys, time has come to start thinning the blue rats out!

    • nope..........havent graduated to posting meme's yet!!!!!!!!!
    • Have a marcum LX9 also use a couple Lowrance units. After using them side by side there are features I like on both but just comparing sonar units I'd have to say that my lowrance units squeak out a win for me over the Marcum. Both are very close to the same performance. The Marcum is much easier to just plop and fish where the lowrance units you have to dial in for each situation. I've never been a traditional flasher guy and never see the need to after using a graph.
    • Yep put mine away this past Saturday. I haven't used it since August. I wanted to park my truck inside instead and I would rather hunt then fish anyways...
