From an ice fisherman's perspective, I would say $30-50 depending on if it an SE version or not. Figure to buy a new battery & charger ($20-40+), ducer ~$75, case ~$30, plus the trouble of getting it all & putting together.

You could buy a complete used unit this time of year in good shape for around $150-225.

maybe you would have more luck if this was posted in the ice fishing forum instead of open water

I have an older unit, Mine is a Sitex fl-8, it also has a fish alarm. A little noisey but works good. I may see about having it tuned up this fall.

The one great thing about the Vexilar Fl-series...is they are 98% reparable, and one can get replacement parts in 3 days if needed, and can be back as good or better than new for often less than $80.

The only one I have seen that was not reparable, was hit by a train while mounted on the bow of a boat....kinda tough to piece that unit back together. wink
