Used? I'd say in the 200 range would be a good deal. +/- 50 bucks.

Dual beam 'ducer? How old?

I was looking for one of these on that list that craig guy has and had a hard time finding an FL18 for less than $300. Remember these things go for 425-500 new, so somebody isn't gonna want to part with one a couple years old for half price. Especially since they only see use for 3 months a year.

I kept my eyes open and picked up a pro pack, with a dual beam transducer, for $225.

I sold my dual beam pro pack last November for $300. I had it listed a several places and sold it the second day to the first guy with the money and had many more waiting in line.

thanks guys, Ill have to look into it more. From my experiance a fl 20 doesnt come in as good, if i remember right it always seemed like it was harder to see your jig. I always had to have the gain crank up where when I use my dads fl 18 it seems to read better. Any one else have this problem

If your have having a hard time seeing with the FL20 there is probably something wrong with it like a bad transducer. There isn't a ton of difference between an 18 & 20 other than the flat screen and a few other bells and whistles. The technology behind both is pretty similar. I have seen the exact opposite; its easier to see with the 20 because of the flat screen.

It really depends on the time of year too. They seem to bring a little more in the "hard water" season. I think 250-275 for a pro pack is reasonable.

FL-18 propack in good condition in the $250-290 range is a very good deal in my opinion - the reliability of these units is great, only service normally required is replacement battery every few years (if you keep it charged), and maybe a brush cleaning. Awesome unit, worth the money!

Come hardwater season, you will be have a hard time finding them under $325.

    •     Free market Republicans????  HAHAHA,!!!!
    • Please God, make Keith Ellison the head of the DNC
    •   Doubtful we would have seen it by now. The bigger issue has always been possible collusion between Trump's campaign and Russian opps to influence the election - and who knew what and who ordered what. That's the big fish. You just have to be patient, all in due time Uncle Bill.
    •   I didn't waste a vote on him..   The garbage can had as much a chance of winning.   You owe the brave voters of Trump a great debt of gratitude for saving this country from hillary..   That's one big beer you owe the "trumpers"...   Bigly....  
    • Picked up some track at FF and put it on the floor and ramp. Also added a couple sections of e track on the wall to hang tie downs etc. Doesn't look like I'm going to get any use out of it this year but will be ready for next year. Plan on taking out track on floor in summer as it can get slippery and going to put in a couple wheel chocks for motorcycles.

    • There's a blessing on the ground.  It's coming down.  It's coming down
      Snow pains on the motor veinsSnow Days
      Keeps your business on the ground
      It's coming down
      Slow day for the teacher
      And her wheels are spinning now
      On account of winter, Mrs. Braintree
      All the roads are closed
      And the stores are loot for vagabonds
      It's coming down
      Go home!

      It's coming down
      Snow lays on the chainfields
      There's a blessing on the ground
      It's coming down
      If your lanes are crammed with children
      There's a blessing on your town
      On a lucky Monday, Mrs. Braintree
      All your lanes are waxen silver
      And the stores are loot for vagabonds
      It's coming down
      Go home! Go home and take a snow day, Mrs. Braintree!

      Mrs. Braintree, you're a chilly northern woman
      Go home from yonder bus stop
      Because there's a blessing on the ground
      Mrs. Braintree, it is written
      When the snows come over Dixie
      All the roads are closed and the stores are loot for vagabonds.

      It's coming down
      Snow lays on the chainfields

      Go home!   I think Reb lives next door to Mrs Braintree.  She's a chilly northern woman.
    •     I think he's actually you and delcecchi's hero, judging by the number of times you guys bring him up....
    •   So did you get a guarantee when we started and lost the war on drugs or is this your version of a double standard? I am saying here is a reasonable solution with the positives outweighing the negatives. This is especially true when compared to the current model that has never worked.   Benefits to ending the war on drugs.
      1. Huge savings enforcement and prison $$$ that can be used on treatment. 1 Trillion spent so far with no results.
      2. Police can focus their man hours on violent and other criminals. 82% of drug arrests are for possession. 3. Creating jobs and collecting taxes on drug sales. Imagine that save tax $$ on enforcement and increase revenue, win win. 4. The legit business model puts most of the dealers, gangs and cartels out of business. The very fact that drugs are illegal makes them expensive because of the risk involved, taking the money out of the black market essentially puts these people out business and that is a good thing. Keeping drug illegal keeps the money flowing their way and nothing we can do other than legalization will stop this.

       
      Says the guy who wants to double down on 45 years of failed policy and poor judgment.
      What is even more mind blowing is that free market republicans want to continue failed big gov policies at a huge cost to the taxpayers. We already have legal drugs from big pharm killing people in record numbers to go along with alcohol and tobacco deaths so it is not like we are venturing into unknown territory here.
