Still Unsure which to buy.


mnfish

Question

I have read all of the threads and am still unsure which finder I should buy. Cost is no option. So which should it be? The Vex, Marcum, or Lowrance?

Thanks

If you have read all the post then the ball is completely in your court. It is now time for you to make a decision what is going to fit you best for your needs. When I asked myself these questions it lead me to a LX 3 for myself and so far it has been a good decision.

mnfish Welcome to FM
I hope you've found this forum helpful in finding information pertaining to your your future purchase. If your still on the fence a side by side demonstration may be what you need. If you can get to one the ICE Leaders Events I think it could be arranged.
BTW I own a MarCum LX3. smile.gif

I went through the same decision last year and ended up with an LX-3 that I have been very happy with. Take a look at the features on each unit and I think you'll find as I did, that the LX-3 gives you the most advanced features available in any unit.

It can be all just mumbo jumbo untill you see what each unit can do.
I like to see things work before spending my hard earned bucks,and not sitting on a shelf at GM in some fake display mode.
I would suggest like the others said attending one of the ICE Series or other Ice Leaders events.You can see both units up and working and decide from that.If you can't make it to one of these events just walk out to your nearest "shanty town" and ask a few guys out there to see thier units.Good way to make a freind and I can almost gaurantee that they will be more than willing to show off their toy!I always am! smile.gif

Both are really - really good especially if you don't have one. I have a FL-18 and I LOVE IT! My buddies have LX-3s and they LOVE them. Either way you can't go wrong.

That's my rant I'm done.

Thanks for the input. I checked out the Vexilars and Marcums on Gull last weekend. I guess my biggest confusion between the two was what made the Vex 18's that much better. After further research last night and after reading your posts, I think I will get the Marcum.

THanks again for the replies and the welcome!!!

      don't know what roulette is? Hi. Roulette as I think is a very cool game. Roulette has been played since the nineteenth century and every self-respecting casino, including online casinos, be sure to have it in their assortment https://aolbroadband.in/ .Games for free, which the guys provide on this site, of course, include the most popular varieties of roulette: American, European and French. The online version of roulette is no different from the well-known one from land-based casinos: it features a green table with marked numbers and betting fields, as well as a wheel with numbered cells on which the ball rotates. On this site you can learn more and even play it

      In addition to to Feichao, you can also consider the DJI Mini SE. This is also an excellent piece. However, always try to read articles and thorough reviews before buying.

      My grandmother is a very old person, and she has had a real estate company for 20 years now, she has dedicated her whole life to it, so she does not understand much about technology and is looking to modernize her business, she is one of the few real estate companies that They don't have their own application, so I see myself in charge of finding a good software developer for real estate and that type of business. Do you know any professional or company that is dedicated to it?

      Don't forget about IP Lures just west of town about 2 miles on the south side of Co. 82.    I was out on Osakis last week for a couple hours. Picked up two walleyes, one about 13" and the other a fat 14-1/2". Also a couple northerns and a handful of perch.

      Of course, you shouldn’t even ask about this, because this is the responsibility of the executor of the order, that is, the employee who will create such an application. I think it will be stated in the contract of employment if there is one and then you don't have to ask for anything.

      Shallow. Got skunked tonight. Just got chased off by the weather. Last evening was the only time the last 4 times out I caught fish. Last even was light drizzle and calm water. Water warmed up about 3-1/2 degrees since the first time out.

      It is very important not only to identify mushrooms by their appearance but also to understand whether it is useful or not, because now there are many poisonous mushrooms, and it is extremely important that no mistakes were made in the selection of such mushrooms. That's why I here https://www.mushrooms.online/mushroom-poisoning/ read a lot of interesting information about poisonous mushrooms and was able to understand more about it. I hope that I was able to help you and was really helpful to learn.
