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.

    • Talked to one of their guys at the Ice Show last week,  what I believe was their entry level w/ramp (like 6.5' x 12') door was over $13k.   I thought it was quite pricey with really not much for any options.  Quality appeared to be good but way more then I would spend for it.  Their biggest selling point is the light weight and pounds per square inch on the ice.   They do have  channels on the inside to run you wired through if you want to add items.   The inside was extremely bright - almost to bright for my eyes.   I believe they said they are located in Litchfield, MN.
    • I would give your first statement 5 Pinnochios.  The first tax increase on people making less than $200k he signed was only 16 days into his first term.     "1. A 156 percent increase in the federal excise tax on tobacco: On February 4, 2009, just sixteen days into his Administration, Obama signed into law a 156 percent increase in the federal excise tax on tobacco, a hike of 61 cents per pack. The median income of smokers is just over $36,000 per year."       And then, of course, the big one is Obamacare, which was ruled a tax by the Supreme Court, and affects many taxpayers under $200,000.
    • Trump is way ahead of you there buddy.    
    • The only tax change that occurred was allowing the Bush tax cuts to expire. All tax bills must be introduced in the House of Representatives, so if you are unhappy with the current state of taxes, you should start there.   Also for those wondering, Clinton's tax increases would have added about $140 billion per year in tax revenue.
    • Sooooo....we were at a breaking point before Obama care....anyone actually think their policy under Trumpcare is going to reduce costs with an increase in benefits.....over an extended period of time?
    • The Art of the Deal......
    • So in a nutshell, you wouldn't really recommend buying U.S. Treasury bonds for an investment.
    • I'm not sure on how much foam it took.  It has over 2" on the bottom.  What happens with the cold surface is you have to "flash" the surface with foam then go over it again, it uses more chemical to do the same job.  So the price to do a cold house is more.  The foam comes out hot & creates more heat during the chemical reaction.     The froth paks were more expensive than having it done in my case.
