Polar Vision Problems

5 posts in this topic

I have one of those polar visions that there is another thread were people are posting. I didn't want to put this with those because I believe they are a good unit. But the problem that I have with mine is that is is very slow to pick up the depth reading. Sometimes it won't read through the ice even when using water. Also have tried to just put new batteries in that doesn't do it either. I will drill a hole to check it like that and still when the water is moving up and down after drilling or there is too much ice it won't read. Has anyone else had these sort of problems. I know strikemater is the manufacture of them I was just wondering if anyone knows what kind of warrenty they have since mine is about 4 years old it has never really work properly? I have just been using the vex lately and I think that that works better. Thanks for the help.

I have one that's on it's third year and works great.

I have some buddies that bought them and they have never worked right.

All I can say is that yours is most likely out-of-warranty and you'll have to ask Strikemaster if they'll work with you. They are really tops in Customer Service.

All units with transducers should get careful handling. If they get smashed or bumped too much they'll act up and need replacment. THe same goes for your Vex or Marcum Ducers--I cover mine with a Crown Royal bag in transit!

Actually, believe it or not Marcum makes the unit.

Call Strikemaster and they will take care of you no matter how old it is.

Great unit, my works great! Sounds like your transducer is bad.

We have the Polar Vision and it works good for the moment. But, we were told whatever you do, DO NOT drop it or bang it up because they just cannot take it. If you happen to do that then from what I understand it could be junk. You need to protect it just like a little baby. Good luck.

    • I hunt zone 1.  Very interesting to see those numbers.  From what I have seen the herd is showing signs of rebound in our neighborhood.  We're a ways off from being able to tolerate hunters choice, but we're seeing deer again finally.  I agree the herd is in better shape than 2-3 years ago when many people saw no deer and no signs of deer.     So what does it all mean?  I suspect the widespread pain of the glut in major swaths of zone 1 for the dark years has woke some up to the idea of passing does.  There was certainly more opportunity with fewer bucks-only zones and larger doe tag numbers in certain DPAs.    What will be interesting is how the DNR responds to more deer on the landscape up here but fewer does being shot.  We had two doe tags in our group this year and we proudly tossed them in the fire, unfilled, at the end of season.

    • I have this problem from time to time but not often.  Sometimes there are little bubbles on the bottom of the transducer and sometimes the ducer isn't below the ice, sometimes it just takes 5 or 10 minutes of sitting in the hole before it starts to pick up the jig.  Other times it works flawlessly.
    • Bingo.  Everything is going good so far.   Not that I would need to answer someone who wasted their vote but being tomorrow will be a great day I thought I'd drop you a line.     The so called Libertarians in silly town.
    • I hate to break your bubble, but your vote and other Trump voters in Minnesota were wasted votes the same as you say those who voted 3rd party were wasted.
    • That a shot at me being former military?
