Marcum LX-5

Recommended Posts

I keep reading about a update on the lx-5, what is it and how old before they did not need it, last years model? I use a vex fl-18 but looking to add another and thought i would maybe try a marcum or maybe the new humminbird.

You are correct on that ec30-06, the wattage is a change in the model this year. fishon68 if you search lx5 you will get all kinds of answers on this product, the watt change, and much more.

If you feel you must have the upgraded features, you may be better off selling yours and buying a new one with the upgrades.

I think I read that they stopped doing the LX-3 true colore upgrades, if that is true that I would be suprised that they would provide the LX5 upgrade option.

I also run a vexilar and have been thinking about trying a

lx-5 or hummingbird ice 55 this year. I have not heard of any updates to the lx-5 other than the new ones put out 2500 watts instead of 2000.

I also have a vex and was deciding on trying a LX-5 for the last few weeks. Today I decided and ordered one. I have a trip next week planned, so hopefully I'll get to "test" it grin

Just an FYI.. I called and emailed Marcum on this issue. The said they only stopped doing the tc upgrade until new parts arrive after the ice season. Next spring they will resume the tc upgrades.

I got the same response when asking about the TC upgrade (LX-3) last month, I found that to be an odd answer that "parts" were not available until after the current ice season. I think the upgrades are not a priority at this time.
