This upgrade to true-color is well worth the money IMO. Rather than the two-color system out there, which blends red and yellow to make green, the Marcum true-color three LED system provides sharper, more defined colors. You'll be happy with the change, and it's fast too! I had mine back in a week when I sent it in two years ago.

I agree that you will love it, I bought mine with true color already on it and the crisp colors on it are like night and day compared to the older ones.

I never bothered with the upgrade at the time nor will I likely in the future because I find it easier on my eyes in the dark although I also have an LX-5 that has the TC . My bride uses the LX-5 with TC more than I do and prefers the TC she says but I think it's just the fancy red case it comes in that makes her prefer it .LOL

You know, in my opinion, there could only be one color and I'd do just as well with it. think about it. do you really pay attention to the color. I work my jig and watch when the fish is getting close and wait for the hit. just because the color changes to red does not mean he is biting!

I think the 3 color system helps me tell what the bottom is like, how hard, how muddy, presence of weeds, etc. It's especially good at showing differences between holes.

    • I’m in a similar situation right now and I am “freaking out” how did it work out for you what paper work did you file? Who did you reach out to?
    • Did someone pee in your charcoal 😁?
    • I like to see the fish that gets away verses not. A few weeks ago, I was trolling for walleyes on the SLR and while reeling one in, something grabbed a hold of it and fought hard for a while but chewed the walleye pretty bad. Trolled over the same are 20 minutes later and caught another walleye and this time it didn't let go and I saw what was eating my walleyes and it was a huge musky that got close to the boat and snapped the line and left with my crankbait and fish. So, the one I saw that "got away" was a cooler sight than the mystery fish that attacked my walleye that I never got to see earlier that day
    • Besides the motor on the back, I don't see much a difference between an old boat and a new boat.   It's not like new boats parallel park themselves.           
    • and still end up with an old boat as was said earlier.  I think it's more a labor of love for what we have...
    • looks like it got corrected! thanks Rick
    • Looks fine to me @rundrave :D
    • Hello from the NW Angle!

      Surface water temperatures range from 65 in the morning reaching low 70s during the late afternoon. 

      Minnesota has been best in shallower areas such as the Flag Island Flats (5-9 ft.) Prime time being the evening bite with many nice fish including a 31" beast. Deeper water around Four Blocks and LIttle Oak are providing good action for Walleye/Sauger. Orange has been the top color. Even with the recent Mayfly hatch and plenty of crayfish in fishes bellies, (Walleye, Sauger and Northerns) the fishing is awesome!

      Canadian fishing has been the best using bottom bouncers in the mud with gold being the most productive color spinners. Jigging will produce fish around structure with larger Walleye/Sauger coming out of 26+ feet of water. Pike and Muskie action is somewhat concentrated to underwater weeds or occasionally while jigging for walleye.

      We hope to see you soon!

    • I think you'd probably have to develop connections to find the right boats at the right price.  If you could also increase the number of boats you do in a given season you could also start buying some materials in bulk which would help drive material costs down.  Still I'm guessing margins would be relatively thin, certainly not a get rich quick scheme.
