Vex Fl-18 good price

6 posts in this topic

Now that the FL-18 is a year old does anybody have good prices on them or a sale?
I could use another toy.

robbor - Cabela's has 3 versions of the FL-18 priced between $374.99 and $319.95. That's about the best I have seen.

I'm glad this question was asked. I am also looking for a good price on a new FL-18. I usually see them for around 4 bills, and the wife thinks I spend too much cash on this sport as it is (that doesn't stop me however smile.gif Anyway, my question is: I bought an FL-8 three years ago, the ProPack version so it fits nicely in a 2.5 gallon pale. Could I just buy the FL-18 with no casing and use the pro pack case (the round plastic holder) from my FL-8? I looked at the new 18's propack and the battery indicators look very different from my old 8's - just wondering if the extra money is worth it?? If it works, I may be able to save 75$ or so, and anytime I find a sale, my wife is quicker to approve - know what I mean?

Biwabik Bohunk - I don't know if they changed the size or dimensions of the new power head for the FL-18, but my gut instincts says no.. But I would call Vexilar to confirm. If that's the case, and the Fl-8/8SLT are the same size powerhead as the Fl-18, your in business at Cabela's for $319, now that's a sale... Good Luck.

You can just buy the 18 unit and mount it on you old pro pack. They're the same. As for the battery status indicator, it's just different color lights and facing, that's all. I have a friend who just did it and bought a blue box for his old unit--extra for g-friend and friends.

    • 195 degrees on these butts. Like they say, if you are going to spend 9 hrs smoking 5# of meat, you just as well spend the same amount of time smoking 45#. The local grocery had these on sale so had a few friends take the offer to throw a roast on for them. Took two off early for slicing  Pulling the rest cost them each a beer though!
    • Very good stuff, kinda tasted like ribs with this recipe,  I'll keep at it til I find the right one!! Good luck moon lake!!
    • It will be interesting to see how the Warriors react in free agency.  Will they be able to keep the team together?  It seems like all these guys value winning above a paycheck so they might be willing to sign deals that will still allow the team flexibility to keep good role players around them.    
    • That's too bad.  The fish were ON FIRE up there.  I went out with my dad and uncle with our tiller walleye boat, and hardly a clue what we were doing, and we crushed them!  Ended up with 118 pounds of packaged salmon fillets.  I think I can honestly say it was the most fun fishing trip I've had in my life.  Here's my biggest of the trip, 25 pounds.    
    •   It's amazing to see a thoroughly talented team like Cleveland just get dissected like a back alley pick up team. I agree--GS will be THE team to beat for several more years if they keep their nucleus. I think we can make them sweat a little bit now, though, so that's pretty exciting for a change! 
    • dang I can see why anyone would slobber!!!!
    • Fletch's hands are totally tied by his own doing, keep in mind our 1st round pick this year was 15 games of Hanzal...definitley not worth it. Fletch needs to get off his duff and pull the trigger on a Scandella trade real soon for a decent Forward and not pass up an OK opportunity by "hoping" for the homerun and missing out on a good opportunity.  IMO our only hope is that other teams are "watered down" more than we are and that our vets can hang in there one more year.
    • Wondermous!!  Anytime, fivebucks! Years of workin' on that stuff does count for something!!!  I wish ya WOULDA bet me!!     Glad ya got 'er done!!!  
    •   I just can't help myself when I look at Boober's goodies!!!      Wait....did that sound right?  
    • sheez reb................i hadda clean all your slobber off the inside my screen when i opened this thread!!!!!!!!!!
