Vexlar fl12 pro pack?
« on: February 03, 2016, 05:04:47 PM »
Local guy is selling one on craigslist for what seems like a decent price. Never had a flasher before but most reviews I've looked up on them seem good. Just wondering if anyone here has used one and what they thought of it? Anything to look for buying a used one or would I be better off buying a new one?

I have a fl8 I got last year for $150. And I never used one before, but I can tell you after using it I wouldn't leave home without it. If it's a good buy get it. Or go on there website and look at the factory referb ones.  I think it's a must have. !<>!

I've seen a few guys using them and talked to a few that have them and say they're worth it. Just wondered if there was anything to look out for on used. Somethings I know are just better new but these don't seem like it'd be a problem. Thanks guys. Everyone like the vex for the most part?

I also have a vex 12 and love it. I really like the larger face compared  to the 8. This is the 4th season with mine and still the original battery. I wont go fishing without it. I paid around $400 for mine. Buy one and you will regret not getting one years ago. Now all we need is a ARTIC vortex to settle over us.

Easy to test turn it on turn gain all the way up. Listen to the ducer it will make clicking noise. Also with gain up all the way hold the ducer facing the ground it will show up on screen lift it up and down and will move on screen. Then ur good.

Picked up another vex at end of season. Was going to go with a 20 or 28. But I couldn't pass up another 12. Got a vex 12 tribeam pro pack on end of season clearance brand new 300 bucks. Couldn't believe the price. Now I got 2. If a buddy goes and doesn't have one we can cover more area and find fish faster. Bring on the ice.

I've been using the FL-8 for three seasons, and I have no idea how I fished without it. Don't leave home without it, runs like a champ. I love it.  Battery performance hasn't waned either. The 8 does show a bit of weakness in water over 30 feet though. You really have to dial up the gain to find your lure on the screen, which in turn can amplify small objects in the water column and can therefore lead you to believe certain marks are fish - when they actually are not. With that in mind, I picked up an FL-18 on clearance last April. The 18 has the 6 foot Zoom mode (with a split screen) so you can zoom in on the last 6 feet of the water column, regardless of the depth. Perfect for places like the Pack or certain areas at Prompton. I can't wait to give the FL-18 a shot this year. I've never used a FL-12,so I guess I can't really comment on that. The FL-8 has been a great unit for me and still runs great. No complaints about the 8. For most of what I do, it works perfectly. Looking forward to trying the 18 out here in a about a month or so..................hopefully!  8) ;D !<>!

Guys if your looking for Vex you might wish to look at  Vex,s reconditioned units , over the years I have purchased two an 8 and a 18 deep still going strong , and tough to beat there prices and they come with a warranty
Just google Vexilar

I've fished my 12 up to 40 ft and can see fish. A Lil gain needed for small presentations but still no problem.really don't fish any deeper. Not many spots I fish reg that are any deeper. But to fish without a unit is a sin. One you've used one you'll never jig without one.I was going to step up but 300 bucks for a 12 tribeam brand new with warranty was a steal.it's hard to find the tris now and when you do the 12 is around 425 and up.I had to look twice when I seen the price.

Just a friendly reminder for all. Commercial hot links are not permitted. The exception would be for our current advertisers and sponsors. Anyone who is interested in something being discussed can find whatever is out there by doing a simple google search. In this case I suspect that searching reconditioned vexilar products would be all it takes. The simple reason behind this is that it is not fair to ask advertiser/sponsors to pay for their banners/links than have anyone on the site provide their competition the service for free.
