can you use a fl8 transducer on an fl18?

6 posts in this topic

I want to upgrade to an fl18, but I already have a transducer for my trolling motor for an fl8. Are they compatible?

If they have the same frequency such as 200khz and the same connecter then it could be used. If it is a different frequency then it will not work or will give erroneous depth readings. Give vexilar a call and they can tell you! grin.gif

I believe they are interchangeable. I was at Fleet Farm over the weekend and saw replacement ice ducers that said right on the package for use on the FL8 and FL18 (19 degree)

I upgraded to the 18 this year from the SLT.
The dual beam ducer from the 8 SLT works just fine on the 18. The Vex site says all thier transducers are interchangable. Look under FAQ for more info if you like.

Yes, they are interchangeable. I talked to the Vex guys at the ice show and they reassured me that my high speed and trolling motor transducer would work perfectly with the FL18.

    • Well our lilacs were just starting to bud out yesterday and I was thinking we should go take a peek today. Unfortunately we got 2 inches of snow overnight and it's still coming down! I'm pretty sure Hubbard county will have to wait at least a week to ten days with the temps forecast.
    • Sorry...no excuses BB...the better team did win....4-1. Lucky for the Wild that Statsny was not playing from the start or it woukd have been a sweep. Love the fact that the national hockey gurus are ripping the Wild right now..read Souhans article pretty much what I've been saying. http://m.startribune.com/wild-again-not-good-enough-when-it-matters/420167633/ While Chicago is telling it like it is...the Wild are sending the wrong message...and Chicago has 3 cups in recent past....6 overall...pretty obvious which organization is trying to win the cup every year and which one is happy just "selling tickets".
    • Got off to a late start, but was able to get to the lower river at 6 AM. Frost covered the ground, as temps were barely above freezing. I could hear turkeys gobbling as I walked through the field. Once I made it to the wooded river valley, the sound of grouse drumming echoed through the woods. Eagles and ospreys continually flew over my head throughout he morning. The water was mabye a couple inches high, and somewhat cloudy, but was noticeably clearing as the morning progressed. 8 o'clock seemed to be the magic hour, as that's when I caught most of my 13 brown trout. Biggest was 16 inches, and had a few swipes from some dandies as well. Beautiful morning to be on the river!
    • So i have experimented with a bunch of brands to see which ones walk the best .... of coarse it depends on fisherman, rod & line being used.   7"2" Cabelas bass rod medium heavy tourney rod,  power pro 45# ...here is the order of best walking frog that worked for me off the dock.   1.  Terminator frog 2.  Bobby's perfect frog (pretty close to terminator) by snag Proof 3.  Spro frog (ok) 4.  KVD frog  (took some work) 5.  Booya pad crasher (teririble)   These are the ones i own ... terminator and snag proof where effortless!!!

    • Nice!  WTG!
