Marcum LX-7 Review
- easy to operate
- excellent deal
- money well spent
- display is beautiful
- glare issues
This is the absolute best ice fishing sonar system available right now! The Marcum LX-7 graphs allows for a history display unlike flasher only units. This unit also outperforms the Lowrance graphs by a long shot. The dual beam transducer adjusts with two pushes of the cone angle button. Battery life is excellent. Vexilar and the others have some catching up to do. Thank you for the great price and timely shipping.
The marcum LX-7 is one of the most advanced ice fishing systems on the market today. I upgraded from the LX-6 because of the larger screen the 7 offers, other than that there is no difference. I love the LX-7, the only issue is shallow water You need to position the transducer right at the top of the ice, barely in the water to read anything under 6 FOW. Rarely am I fishing in these depths but there are some perch and crappie areas i fish in the 5-6 fow range coming off deeper areas.
That being said, the detail and response is phenomenal. I mainly ice fish lake Erie, in current and deep waters and the resolution and sensitivity is fantastic I love the larger screen for multiple viewing options. Vertical flasher, vertical zoom, and flasher display allows me to see the entire water column for suspended fish.
This is a fantastic product that I highly recommend, the display is beautiful (yes, this review is for a fish finder!). Having said that, the glare is horrible. I have not yet tried some sort of anti-glare screen cover but it is badly needed if you are going to be doing any fishing outside of a shelter.
Fun unit to use. This was a major upgrade from my Vexilar fl 12. I still love vexilar but I decided to go with the lx7 because all my friends have the flx 28s. They are both awesome units but I love the huge screen on the marcum.
Only used it a few times, and I think I’m finally getting it dialed in to where I understand it. Like the larger screen, and I just updated it to the latest software, so am excited to use it again!
Excellent piece of equipment it is totally amazing and I would tell anybody who ice fishes this is a must have item. The price was great compared to cabelas and the shipping date was spot on! I love the technology that come with the Marcum lx7 it help me catch lot of fish it easy to use and full charge of battery it will last me all day long.
Great unit still getting use to all the options really like the night screen option. I would buy another marcum in the future. Great Christmas gift for the boyfriend! He loves it for ice fishing. Very nice carrying case and protective cover to keep it safe. My new toy works great and i love it!! We have enjoyed this flasher and caught a couple gigantic hogs with it! Love every single feature and there are no problems with it! Love the product!
Purchased the lx-7 after reading all of the positive reviews and after 6 trips out on the ice it died. It’s was a good unit when it worked, but very frustrating to spend this kind of money to have it stop working during the middle of ice fishing season. I would have given marcum less stars, but like I said when it worked it was good, but not great. This unit is not what I would call a starter unit and takes some time to learn how to operate. The case is very awkward to carry by the handle and its difficult to secure the velcro on the cover. I also had issues with it providing accurate depth reading. I’m not sure if that has anything to do with the issue I had with the function buttons not working.
I give Amazon a solid 5 stars for their customer service. I will definitely continue to purchase from Amazon.
Love this and it works awesome. Also I couldn’t find it cheaper anywhere around my home for close to what I paid for it from here.
Fl-20 didn’t give any interference to the marcum or vice versa. Crisp clear viewing screen. Can really fine tune the settings.
