Anyone use a Marcum LX9?
« on: December 22, 2019, 10:58:13 AM »
I finally sucked it up and spent the money on a new unit. After doin some research i was lookin for an lx7 and i found a slightly used lx9. The price was right so I ordered it. Is anyone familiar with these units? Is there any downfalls i should know about? Really couldnt find any bad reviews other then people getting them busted up from marcum. I appreciate any input.  Can’t wait to get it out on the ice.

I have one. Used it last.winter. no complaints.  They are just a  bigger version of the LX7. Same features nothing more or less but size.

I spent a few hrs on Belmont today using the Lx9.  After a while i dropped the camrea down and couldn't believe what was goin on down the hole.  The fish were pretty tight lipped as so i thought.  When using the camrea i noticed as soon as i marked a fiah and he came on screen he would suck up my jig and spit it right out.  I couldnt feel the hit. So i started setting the hook as soon as i seen him suck it up and he was on. Even had a 17” largemouth come on screen suck up and i set the hook before i even felt a hit. What a game changer it is to have the camrea.  Of course its not benificial when I’m runnin and gunnin,but once i find them and set up shop the camrea is definitely a nice tool im the arsenal

My kids just got me a Vexilar.scout 800....
I can't wait to try it out..
I'm thinking it might give a edge with the use of the vex18.

Have the LX7 for a few years now. No complaints. Probably switch the battery out to a Dakota Lithium to reduce weight and more amp hours for the unit would be the only mods I could see to improve.

Sorry I must have been sleeping when I posted this. LX7 is a digital flasher not a camera like the LX9. The LX7 is a bigger version of the LX6. Old age is setting in.
