Marcum’s LX-6

Sonar is sonar, yes? Not necessarily. Check out the new Marcum units and prepare to be impressed!

I’ve spent a great deal of time on the ice this winter with Marcum’s LX-6 and I’ve been nothing short of impressed.

The list of features is pretty extensive, but using traditional sonar with a high-speed digital display has greatly enhanced the experience. The 6-inch color LCD offers users 4 color palettes to choose from making customization a breeze.

By taking all the sweet features and advantages of the bigger brother, the LX-7, the LX-6 comes standard with multiple water-column views on a lighter, compact high-res LCD. You literally have two sonar units in one through the use of 8- and 20-degree transducers

Probably my favorite feature is the Interference Rejecter (IR). When I take my kids fishing, I will typically run a couple different brands of flashers. Often times, they don’t like each other and visual feedback is created, and that can be frustrating. Marcum’s IR reduces the aggravation
