Hey guys.  I just dumped a canoe and lost my lx-5 and searching for a replacement.  Thinking of livescope from cabela's as I have tons of gift cards. Any idea what price is on black Friday? Someone said $1499 but that's how much it is right now. Also do I just need to buy the livescope and a head unit? Any help greatly appreciated.

the value in either choice is time spent from getting out of the truck to putting the first fish on the ice.  if you are a guy who fishes a handful of spots knows exactly what they are doing, panoptix/livescope as a flasher replacement is cool but unnecessary.  If you are someone who is always grinding to find fish in new areas, its a game changer. 

we are notorious for drilling and drilling and drilling.  if you see a giant grid of 6" holes in our neck of the woods you likely assume that it was me and my fishing buddy.   last year that changed.   we begun being asked by guys who fish the same waters if we even ice fished anymore.   i was like we actually get to fish MORE within the same amount of time. 

monetarily i've yet to justify livescop so panoptix will do.  that swap over is likely a year or so away
