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.

    •   My Father-in-law (a master plumber) always used to say you only need to know 3 things to be a plumber:          sh*t doesn't run uphill         payday is on Friday         the boss is an ahole      
    • I've been getting them at Costco,  I've checked slyvee and sams but never see them.  Although one of the butcher's at slyvee says he can get them which might not be a bad idea since you can have some fat cut off before you pay per #. I picked one up a couple of weeks ago and it was about 2.80 a #, which isn't too bad yet considering bacon in the store can run quite a bit more than that.  You making bacon or doing pork belly burnt ends moon lake?
    • Excellent summer fishing.  Charters catching strong numbers.  Jig/minnow or jig/leech and bouncers with spinners with crawlers or minnows still producing walleyes. When the wind is right for pulling spinners, they have been lights out.  Walleyes being caught in varying depths, 7-31' of water.  Some shallow shorelines still producing. Pike mixed in all over the lake.    Walleyes in the Rainy River with a better morning/evening bite.  Trolling cranks or pulling spinners a good idea to cover more water. Smallmouth bass are out and about along shorelines and feeder streams. Sturgeon fishing opens again Saturday, July 1st.     Up at the NW Angle, water temps are in the low to mid 60’s. Wind blown shorelines are giving up walleyes via leeches or crankbaits along the weed line. Crawlers on a  gold and/or orange spinner are producing fish out of the mud between 22 - 26 feet. On the Canadian side, bottom bouncers and spinners have been filling the livewells outside of monument bay between 24-28 feet.  Jigging near Skeet and Kennedy Islands have produced nice sized walleye and numerous perch. Great smallmouth action in Tranquil channel and the mouth of Johnston passage. Muskie fishing picking up with high 40” class fish being caught with a few 50's from shallow bottom bays or adjacent to them.
    • Busy time of year out there so if u get canceled it is hard to rebook especially with the smaller operations. Bummer though as it can be a lot of fun if they are biting. 
    • I understand that you never really know when the Warriors are going to fall off or if they even will.  Hopefully the Wolves can make the playoffs and gain some experience, maybe teach the rest of the team how to play defense, so that in a few years we are knocking on the door and can lure in a top free agent to put us over the edge.  Its just an awful tough time to be a good team right now with the Warriors so clearly heads and shoulders above everyone else.
    • I couldn't have said it better myself pikestabber!  We have to go out there and do what we can now and not try to set up for "when the warriors are old" cuz the way the NBA is going who knows what players may join forces to set up the next "Warriors" squad.  Heck maybe the Wolves will be that next team !!  I just really love the addition of Butler and from the sounds of it we are not done yet and I am excited to see what will happen in free agency and if we could really land the likes of Kyle Lowry one of the other PG's that are hitting the FA market.  Nice to see the Wolves making moves!!
    • I would ask Getanet where to get some good ones!   Pork Belly Stinks Started by Getanet, May 1
    • So that means you ALMOST caught a fish!!   Real bummer!
