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.

      Awese thread! I take our golden/lab mix to Round Lake for training also. This pic is from May when it was chilly. We're having an absolute blast working together. She's a sweet dog, will do anything to please me if she understands. Only thing I have to do before the season is somehow introduce her to gunshots and that's not easy without private land. Watching her barrel through the cattails to find that dummy is awesome.

      There are a few small Trout lakes in there as well but not sure how they bite in the summer? I've only Ice fished them.

      Finally making it up for our first trip of the year. Strictly walleye fishing in Frazer Bay with slip bobbers around the reefs. Appreciate any fishing reports. Thanks!

      I believe they take vets living in veteran homes around the area like Silver Bay veteran home ect

      tango loves going to Crooked lake!   Sand pines really works with you well for starting off. I don't know just because they were not busy but the kid stayed out with me and planted one by one until I told him to release them all. Golden meadows is nice as well. Do the pre buy program (I think if you buy before mid Aug) and the birds are a good price. They will flag all the birds if you want.   He still only weighs under 60lbs but I like it that way he is deadly fast and never gets tired   Cant wait to see how he does this season want to make a trip to the Dakotas at least once

      Does anybody know of a local Alexandria shop that would install a Humminbird Helix for me?

      Like Mlaker3 said... go as light as you can. The key is to try and stay vertical. It's the nature of the beast when jigging in rocks that your going to get some snags and loose some jigs.

      Thanks for all info. Even if I end up staying at the kawashiwi river campground (which I've done the past 2 years), now I at least know where to drive around and scout out some spots for next trip.

      Good advice! I appreciate it. And good to hear from you. I found fish over the weekend on reef tops with few if any bites. I should've moved on but 11-12" fish made me think better ones might come. The good fish I did find were on the sides of reefs.  I'm off the water for family business, but hoping for a good August!
