flasher interference

Recommended Posts

I know this has been discussed but I'm curious if anyone has any experience with using two marcums in the same portable. I have a LX1 and a VX1, the VX1 suffers a lot of interference. Has anyone used 2 VX1's next to each other? I've heard 2 LX3's or 2 Lx5s are fine but nothing on the new units. Anyone with real life experience with the VX1's?

My buddy has a VX1 and I have an LX-3, we have never fished in the same house before, but with our portables we have been 10 feet apart and able to block out the interference, certainly me more than him. I know this isn't exactly the answer to your post, but it's what I have experienced...

This isnt the anwser you want but with a general title as flasher interference I figured I would post.

I recently bought a LX 5, One of my boys has an FL18 the other an FL8.

I can filter out both %100, the FL18 can get rid of most of it and the FL8 is a mess.

In my experience which ever has the most power will usually get the least interference. LX-5 2,000 watts, FL-8 400 watts.

Two Friends and I all went out and bought VX-1's this year and we are all able to fish right next to each other. It just takes a minute for everyone to cycle through the IR and find the right one.

Similar situation for me but in the same house, and my LX-3 can block out his cabelas flasher (don't remember the number but it's supposedly marcum-made) much better than he can block me. Then my father in law hopped in the house with his FL18, and the cabelas flasher got even worse. I got about 95% out, the vex was troubled but usable, and the cabelas flasher was almost unusable. Hope this helps.

Arrgh, the monkey races on the dial can sure be frustrating!

Sometimes, interference can be more related to the bottom geometry vs what brand of flasher you are using.

There have been times where the MarCum will swamp me out, sometime my FL18 will give the MarCum fits.

When fishing on steep breaklines, often one flasher will seem to overpower everyone else. Sharp breaks, walls, rocks/boulders can have return signals coming back at odd angles, and no amount of fiddling short of moving around will clean the problem up.

This last weekend we fished with a Fl-8 FL-18 LX-5 and Aqua Vu VPG.

I could always get my interferance out. The VPG was a mess, LX-5 was a mess, FL-8 was mess. For rating who could get the interferance out best my ratings would be

1. FL-18

2. LX-5

3. VPG - was usable because of the greyscale

4. FL-8

I fished this past weekend with 2 LX3's (one was mine) and a FL8 in a 8X8 house. Mine had some occasional interference, the other LX3 was perfect and that poor FL8 was like flamin' Christmas-that poor girl! We would go around the house pushing the IR button but just had to be happy with what we got! Doesn't this sometimes have to do with the depth of water you were fishing in too? We were in 25ft and I heard the deeper the water the worse the problems.

    • Fan of the stealth bomber look.
    • Did you shoot the rx1? If you did... what made you pick the rx3 over rx1?
    • just remember that water will follow the path of least resistance, meaning  that it may look like it is all contained to one area but the water may have been running across a beam to another area altogether.  I work in insurance and see and hear very unique situations often!.
    • I wish manufacturers would offer a truck that is "hunter friendly". 1. I want a truck that has keyless entry, so if I lock my keys in or lose them in the woods it doesn't matter. 2. I want to be able to turn my headlights off when the truck is running, so I can wait for shooting light without the high beams cutting through the trees. 3.The loud DING-DING-DING when the door is opened would not be necessary because of #1.  4. Run flat tires would be standard. 5. A handy man style jack with solid spots to jack from on the outside of the truck and 2 spares also. 6. Heated cup holder with direct wiring so when I get back to the truck after a morning sit in a cold tree, my coffee is still hot. No leaky thermos putting my coffee on my seat. 7. Winch and arm mounted to the bed to load big game with 1 hand.  8. Matte finish camo and no chrome to reflect sunlight. 9. Remote start works from over 1 mile away, or pre heated coolant so you have heat instantly. 10. Bullet holders on the door and dash so they aren't rolling around on the floor when you need them. 11. Spot light for pre season shining, where legal.  12. 4 wheel steering for dead end trail turnaround.  13. Built in heated/cooled dog kennel.   One wouldn't necessarily need all of these, but to customize the package to Hunter's preference would be great. What would your hunting rig have on it to improve your success and pleasure??

    • Very ,very close for  change. If I would of bought when i started shooing this start of winter cause the RX-3 was not there I would of been a Mathews guy and that was hard to admit at first  😯  
    • Sweet!   I hope you get that rig started with a turkey this spring!
