Vexilar's new flaser/flashers for the ice season.

14 posts in this topic

I have been hearing rumors that Vexilar is coming out with a new flasher or flashers. Is this true? I am looking to invest in a flasher and would really like to see the new ones that they are coming out with.

Thanks,

Chris

I talked to the Vex, guy at the sportsman show about making something new to compete with the new bird. He said, why make something new when you already have the best! So they must not be to worried about losing market share?? crazy

Yep, you have to keep up with the market or you won't exist for long.

They are not fast to change something that works and is proven, no need to. Yet they are far from afraid of innovation when it fits the needs of the angler.

Exactly. They have no reason to change anything.

If it ain't broke why fix it?

It doesn't really have anything to do with it "being broke". Just think if everyone had that philosophy. We would never get new and IMPROVED equipment. There is always room for improvement.

Also, to stay in business, they will need to come out with something new very soon, to stay "ahead" of the game.

I second that. Take computer manufactures, just because they have a leading, innovative computer this year doesn't mean they will have it next with another company coming out with something "new" and "better". You have to keep growing as a company and change features or models every so often.

I am pretty sure vexilar has nothing to worry about....each of the other units that have competed with them have bells and whistles that the vex may not have but the vex is tried and true and their units do not have problems!! I have used Marcum Hummingbird and Vexilar and I will stick with the Vexilars as they are easy to use and they get the job done. The Marcum and Hummingbird have so many options I never knew if I was using the darn things right.....turn a vex on a it is ready to use!!!!

I am going to disagree with you there. I use my HB and all I do is turn the knob and go. Pretty darn easy to use. There is more that I can do with it if I need to, but most of the time I don't.

    •  I use a Digger mount on my ATV and sled.  Its fast and easy.   I'm on the ice everyday testing and tweaking Nils blades. I rack the auger on every blade change and some days that could be 20 times so for the me the Digger is exactly what I need.  The clamp on the Digger makes fast work of securing the auger and removal.   The height of the Digger frees room on the rack for more gear.      Once in a while we'll take my buddies ATV out fishing.  Hes got no auger rack so we'll bungie the auger to the ATV rack. It works but it makes me appreciate the Digger rack all the more.   Any rack would be an improvement there.   In the past guys have posted their homemade racks and I hope they do so again.   
    • Currently have a couple empires. Most likely toss one of them in. If I go with a furnace I'll use a small plug in step down transformer 120v AC to 12DC. They are cheap as hell basically an oversized cellphone charger.
    •   You realize the only ones taking Calexit with any seriousness are conservatives. Which means conservatives are the ones falling for the Russian propaganda. Liberals say it sarcastically because conservatives think the country would be better off without the "coastal liberal elites" (even though California pays in $405 billion in federal taxes and receives only $344 billion in federal spending, meaning the rest of the country would be $61 billion poorer without California).
    •   As in the one that lets me use his cabin for Turkey and Deer hunting!
    • So Bear, please describe what your policy on those drugs now banned would be, in as much detail as you can.     I am really wondering what the alternative envisioned by the "stop the war on drugs" folks is.      
    •   Bear, I explained why we are stuck with the two party system.   If you don't like the two we have, you need to "pull a trump" and take over one of them.     Good Luck. 
    • Actually only one species of bumblebee so far.     I have no idea how one distinguishes the species of bumblebees.   
    • If this is your carb # 6 is the drain screw   http://www.marineengine.com/parts/yamaha-outboard-parts/1997/30/30ELHV/620301630004
    • I would suggest using non-oxy gas also!
    • I highly doubt it needs carb kits if only sat that long. Draining the carb bowls and spraying carb cleaner in there can clean things up a lot and loosen sticky floats. Should be a main jet on each carb you can pull to drain carb bowls and spray into and clean jet. Put in fresh gas with seafoam in it and new plugs and it will probably run. Impeller is a pretty easy job to. Should be able to find a video on u tube on how to do it. I would drain my carb bowls on my old 115 2 stroke every spring and you would be surprised at the slimy stuff that came out of them sometimes and that was just sitting over winter.
