Marcum LX-1 vs. Vexilar FL-8

Recommended Posts

Looking for input as to how the LX-1 compares to the FL-8. There is a certain store that has the LX-1 on sale for $230. I think I finally have the wife conviced enough to let me get a flasher so if the LX-1 performs similar enough to the FL-8 I want to get one. Somebody please help.

Thanks

I don't have the LX-1. I have an LX-3 and a FL-18 and I prefer the LX-3. I talked to my buddy Rob and he has been using an LX-1 this season and he had an FL8SLT for years and I asked him point blank which one he preferred and he said he liked his LX-1 better. He got hooked on the thin line display. His only gripe was it won't fit in a 5 gal. pail other than that thus far it's been a great investment.

Thanks for the response.

I also was wondering if the LX-1 can read through the ice without cutting a hole by pouring water on the? Also, is the LX-1 a multi colored display?

If you can get an LX-1 for $230- jump all over it! I like the zoom feature of the LX-3 and the FL-18, but I don't believe that it helps me catch more fish. Just my opinion. Get the LX-1 for that money and consider yourself lucky- you'll have a dang nice flasher!!!

I am trying to convince my wife to let me get one. I will reveal the location once I know if I can get one or not. The quantities are limited at the store that has them. They are $240 not $230 as I said before but still a heck of a deal.

Thorne Bros. has them at that price. I am going to get one tomorrow. It sounds like they have quite a few left. I can't wait to play with it.

    • Well Thank God for your wife. Shes a saint. 😇
    • 1 x 6 untreated red cedar bds cut to 15" for the weber has worked good for me. You can get lots of cooks on one board.  It's a lot cheaper than getting them at a grill store. The salmon looks good!
    • Yes, it's Food Grade cedar! 😋
    • Seeing the plank brings up a question.   Is that cedar that is sold as cooking planks any different than the stuff sold at the lumber yard for various purposes, like siding or roofing or docks?   
    • solo o... FALTA PESCAAA.. 
    • Last friday of lent and Coborns had a flash sale on fresh salmon so I put some on my overpriced pellet grill.   Good thing my wife talks me into sacrificing eating meat on Fridays of lent, you know, for Jesus.    
    • Got up early and put this small piece of brisket on my overpriced pellet smoker. I've never done one this small but my buddy who owns a meat market gave it to me at half price to get rid of it. It's  almost foiling time now at 10:30 am.
    • I’m in St. Cloud for Easter weekend, and decided to check out nearby Little Rock Creek. I had very low expectations. There’s a few easements, and a nice little wildlife management area, but the creek really isn’t very fishable. Water was pretty high, and banks were flooded. Overhanging brush would make fishing impossible in summer. Didn’t catch anything. Wasn’t disappointed though. Now I know not to bother again. Was still a nice morning for a walk in the country.
    • Haha. So, her boots kept falling off so much (several sizes too big), she eventually put them on the wrong feet. I tried telling her that, which is always a losing battle on my part. I thought maybe, that if they were on the wrong feet, they would stay on better. They did not.   This is the best time of year to take kids out trout fishing. No leaves on the trees, brush is still dead and matted down, so casting and walking are super easy.
