Cabelas pack versus Marcums pack for lx3

4 posts in this topic

Was drooling over the LX3 and all the post on them has me looking to get one. I looked at Cabelas and noticed they have it with there pack for $30 less. Does anyone know how these 2 compare? Should I try to save a little or will I regret it?

I thought Cabelas got into trouble with this a few years ago with the Vexilar packages they were assembling and selling.

From what I remember, people were having issues and sending their Cabela's pack Vexilars back to Vexilar and they were saying half the stuff wasn't their product. confused.gif

I doubt that it is just the pack that is different. I would check the battery, battery charger, the battery charge meter are all Marcum.

I would pay the extra $30. The Marcum soft case is awesome period and worth the $30 if that is the only difference

I haven't seen these packs, so I can't speak of the quality of Cabelas packaging. I know they like to do this with many products. For $30 I'd pay the difference and get the original MarCum pack. They are really put together as a nice quality package from MarCum.

Thanks guys! I just ordered my LX3 with the Marcum pack. Didn't want to kick myself for trying to save $30. I will be getting it sometime next week and am anxious to use it. I told my Fiance I had to have one so I could catch more fish so the pressure is on me to produce.

      Hi all, I just want to askl if someone ever tried using shrooms or truffles for medical purposes? I was reading some articles about this magic truffles and shrooms before engaging my self for the first time. They say that it has a very potent effect on the brain and hallucination. Unlike marijuana does it have any medical use? In one article that I've read magic truffles or shrooms are use on reducing the symtoms of obsessive-conpulsive disorder, anxiety, and depression. It can also help people to quit smoking and alcohol addiction. Some studies also suggest the property of magic shrooms/truffles can be useful for cancer patients. I would really want to hear other insights regarding this new possible alternative meds. Thanks

      I literally just watched an episode of Linders Angling Edge where they echoed exactly what SkunkedAgains quote claimed.

      Went out yesterday in between honey dos.  First sunny day in several days.  Hooked up on a good sized bunch of brown fish in 5 FOW.  They were enjoying warmer water, 55F, on a chunk rock spot. Caught the females first with the largest around 4 lbs then a few smaller males came to the boat.  All caught on plastics.  Went back out late after the last chore to catch an eye for supper.  No luck on eyes but the pike enjoyed a few minnows.
