There isn't an aftermarket one that I know of. And it will break, mine has broke 3 times. Every time it has broke I just call Marcum and they have sent me a new one no questions asked! I dont use the arm anymore, I baught a tranducer float from Cabelas and float it in the hole like a vex.

I've had my Showdown, non 5.6 since 2006 or so, never broke an arm. Lost the stopper in 150fow once, called them, they sent another. If you treat it nice you shouldn't have any issues. My LX9 has the same style plastic arm, so they must not have seen a need to do anything different. If they were going broke send new plastic arms out, they might have changed the design.

So call Marcum a couple of times ahead of time and get a spare or two...obviously they know the part is a POS if they ship them no questions asked...and plan on breakage...

Or just don't use the arm and get a float! Works better for jumping from hole to hole or having to pull your transducer out for a big fish anyways!

I wasn't sure if I should go with the LX7 or 9. My wife got me the 9 for Xmas, glad she did. I don't always use a camera, but when I do, I like the LX9.

Does it have the newest firmware on it? It allows for pre-recording and one button recording as well as some refinements to camera control and other things as well.
