So I have been researching the marcums vs. the vexilars for about a year now and finally decided to upgrade from my vex fl-8 to the marcum lx-5. It seems like the marcums are a step ahead of the vex and for a compareable price. Anyone out there use the marcum? Any suggestions on using the lx-5. It is scheduled to get here on Tues so I will have a report or two Tues night on how it goes.
