I would ask myself, how long have either of those companies been building atlashers. And look at their competitor.

Having owned 2 of the 3 brands out there and have used the 3rd, hands down the Marcum line up... Tough to beat the LX-5 for bottom huggers, shallow weeds with the SFL feature and great for suspended fish with the movable zoom. Answers you get will be whatever brand the poster owns, I have owned 4 Vexs and 3 LX units currently running a LX-5 and LX-7... 7 is amazing if you don't mind buying a new product...Customer service is equal across the board, Marcum is made in MN so also helps make up my mind....

I would strongly suggest marcum! I have a lx-5 and I love it. Ive had it for three years now. It actually quit working last week. I called them and to my surprise they are manufactured in new hope. I brought the unit to the factory and they fixed it up on the spot no charge. They replaced parts that were worn but still worked. It looked like brand new when they were done with it. They even gave me a tour of the factory. I was really let down when it broke but I was in amazed by there customer service!!

I'm really starting to like the digital depth reading on the Humminbirds, also the flat screen on newer Vex's, Birds, and LX-7 is nice when snow is blowing around. Can't go wrong with whichever you choose, just make sure it at the very least has bottom zoom. Can't understand buying an FL-8 at this point in time.

      Well, we netted a half dozen fish with the new net and I think I like it.  The biggest was a 45 and everything worked out real nice. Bringing the fish in was easy and then laying the net handle across the gun wale of the boat was enough to keep the fish and bag in the water and in pretty straight shape to work with.  Even with my 40 that needed the hooks cut off, the fish was completely in the water the whole time.  The only time any were out of the water was for a quick measure and photos.  No twisted gnarled mesh to deal with for the most part either. It proved to be worth the space!

      Beautiful day to be on the water, but such a struggle catching fish.  Marking a lot of fish and just as many bait balls or some other underwater clouds that the game fish were keying in on.  Ended up C&R a lot of really plump Sunnies ( thinking they haven't spawned yet?),  2 Northerns, several pieces of timber, 2 slot Walleyes, and a great sunburn. All within 12 hrs of fishing.

      I'll try to make it. Does 8 am work? Might go for other species too for fun.

      Another good a.m bite for me and my wife today , ( Thurs ) on Big bay . Nice fish again . Our limit of keeps , also put two back . 8:00 - noon. . . .  Hey Cliff , I’m gonna try to send you a p m .

      Was in Big Bay once again today and saw a few more Mayfly today than Tuesday . I agree things are just kinda getting going with the hatch , and also believe that these bugs will last until well after the 4th of July . With that being said , I also believe that fishing should hold up for awhile until the fish become so gorged out that things could come to a screeching halt later into this whole bug period .

      Mine does not have an auto fan setting on the dial. I wish it did. 
    • papadarv
      Setting the fan to high or low the fan runs continuously. Set the fan to auto fan will start/stop with the compressor.

      Dragfoot, where do you go trail riding up there? South of Roosevelt?
