Bookmark and Share

MarCum LX-5 Ice System Introduction...



Looking for the absolute best ice fishing flasher money can buy? Well, MarCum states their case with the MarCum LX-5, designed for the hardcore ice fisherman!

MarCum leads the way among ice fishing sonar makers with the LX-5. Among the most expensive flashers on the market today, but in this case, you truly do get what you pay for!

The LX-5 boasts an industry leading 2500 watts PtP Power, coupled with MarCum's Patented Moveable Zoom feature, which allows you to zoom in fish that show up anywhere within the water column, with a target separation of less than an inch.

Plus, a dual-beam transducer allows you to toggle between 8° and 20° cone angles and displays the data on a True Color display.

As you scan the features of the LX-5 (below), imagine how your catch rate will skyrocket with this system!



MarCum LX-5 Ice System

MarCum LX-5



Display: 3 Color w/ MarCum's new patent-pending TrueColor Display, resulting in an ultra crisp, highly visible display (even in bright sunlight).
PtP Power: 2500 watts
Transducer: Dual-Beam, Self Aligning. Just press a button to switch between an 8° and a 20° cone angle (Sweet)
Depth: 160 feet
IR Rejection: Patented 12 Level “Interference Rejection” feature that allows the user to knock out interference from other nearby flashers.
Zoom Capability: Patented movable zoom feature that allows the user to zoom in on a segment of water anywhere within the water column.
SuperFine Line: The SuperFine Line feature, another of MarCum Technologies latest break throughs, allows the user to improve the units resolution resulting in target separation down to 0.75 inch.

Soft Pack: The LX-5 Ice System includes an embroidered padded soft pack carrying case
Battery: 12 volt – 7 amp
Charger: Fully automatic three stage digital charging system with LCD battery display. Burst - Trickle - Maintenance Charge levels, eliminate overcharge possibility!
Auto-Tune Standard on all MarCum ice fishing sonar flashers, this feature accounts for the variances in the 200Khz transducer, basically matching the transducer to the power head. This improves overall unit performance, especially the IR rejection and target separation.
Misc: Electronics shuttle with adjustable transducer arm and gimbal bracket and LX-5 powerhead.
Warranty: 2 Years




MarCum LX-3TC Ice System Introduction...



Don't need the best, but want most of the "Bells & Whistles" anyways? Bingo... The LX-3TC just may be the best overall value of all ice fishing sonar candidates.

Take a close look at the features of this fine flasher. Plus, you can save around a hundred bucks. Hmmm. That buys a lot of jigs and bait, maybe a new rod.

MarCum VX-1 Ice System Introduction...



Still one of the best, economical ice fishing sonar models available, after increasing PtP power rating back in 2009. The MarCum VX-1 certainly suits the needs of most ice fishermen. I have one myself, although I wish I would have spent the extra money on an LX-5.
