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.

      Did you finish 7th grade grammar? I'm trying to understand your question...can't!

      There are two main spawning spots on Vermilion that I know of. I'm near the one on the west end of Vermilion. The walleye haven't been as good on this end yet they don't pull any fish out from here. They've been pulling walleye out of the east end spawning spot in Pike Bay, and for some reason walleye have been doing better over there.   I have no doubt that there are many variables that go into the equation, but you can't ignore that the end they put the 10% back into has been doing better than the one where they leave it alone.

      Are there any updates for the area?  It sounds like crappie fishing is good in the shallows on Fishtrap.  I heard Sham is fighting high waters with no end in sight....

      Trolloni - Do you write it that way to actually troll us?  Creel/lake surveys show Vermilion is very healthy and the DNR continues to use new technology.  It's only going to get better.  If we listened to old, arm-chair QB's, fishing would be as shi#TY as the West side.

      At least10% of all eggs hatched at the Pike River Hatchery are returned to Vermilion waters every year. According to DNR statistics that percentage is usually a much higher survival rate then if they had let the walleyes spawn naturally! I consider that a good trade off! Cliff
