MARCUM RT-9 2.0
« on: Nov 08, 2019, 11:21 AM »
Version 2 of the RT-9.

Now we know why the RT-9 v1 sold so cheap last season.

Looks like you can upgrade the v1 to the v2 for 200$

I'd get the Amped Outdoors 12 amp battery if you want a better battery and is same size as the 10Amp.

The original RT9 was as low as $330 on Amazon this past Summer, if someone wanted the V2, upgrading for $200 at that price would have been a heck of a deal. The price was low for a while, I think everyone just figured the RT9 was discontinued.

That's crazy talk. Remanufacturing poorly designed half-decade old electronics is the future of ice fishing.  Clearly a deal at any price.

Looks nice.  I wonder how this will compare the Hummingbird and Garmin?   And if it is a big upgrade over gen 1?

I just got a Marcum Lithium LX6 on Amazon for $411, but tempted to get 2.0 instead.

I'm definitely going to do the upgrade! I'm glad they've decided to go that way.

I am glad the work I did for Marcum last year paid off. Unfortunately they went their own route on a battery which was expected. They sold a ton of our Amped Outdoors batteries last year for us. If you want to upgrade your RT9 battery to a 12AH, feel free to PM me. I will give you a code for better pricing for this unit. Thank you!
Thank you all for your support! - Energized Outdoors
