Marcum LX9

Any Canadians have this unit? Care to share what you think of it? I've read all the posts on the board but they're starting to get older, thought I'd stir up some fresh opinion.

I just got the lx-7 the other night, seems to be an awsome unit, only thing I would change is the softpack case, it falls out easily and leans pretty good when carrying it by its handle. Other then that it's my new best friend on the ice besides my auger, lol the lx-9 is gonna make a guys wallet a lot lighter, seems like to much for me, for as much as I use a camera, maybe once a season, it's not worth the extra 600 bucks! You can pick up a cheeper marcum for 300-400, then if you want to hole hop you don't have to pull up the camera, just my opinion!

Thanks

Hey Angus I've got my eye on the LX-9 as well. It's a hefty price tag but looks like a heck of a unit. If I make the purchase I'll be sure to post a review.

Yes, that's a good read. I went out and got one. Now I have to stare at it for a couple months

Just set up the shack, grab a bottle of whiskey, put the LX-9 on simulator mode and use your imagination!! Repeat as needed for the next 6-8 weeks. Haha

I bought the LX7 last year.
its a great unit, I'm sure the LX9 would just be an added bonus well worth the cash!

I bought the lx-7 last year and it is an amazing unit! I am actually just about to send it away and have it upgraded to the lx-9 for an extra $500. I like how you can overlay the flasher portion right over the camera feed.

I have the 9 and it is an absoutly sweeeet unit. having open water mode and being able to run the graph over top of the camera pic. It has so many really kewl features to it. I also have to agree the carrying part is a little odd, seems like its gonna roll right out the front. Have the camera on it and it balances nice, have it off and just make sure you grab it correctly. I will make one suggestion to not only lx owners but any that don't get the battery life that think they should. GET A LITHIUM ION.. You will not regret the extra money spent. I ran the 9 for 2 days on demo mode and still had plenty left. Ran my camera ALL DAY. no probs
