      Members Only Fluid Forum View   08/08/2017

      Fluid forum view allows members only to get right to the meat of this community; the topics. You can toggle between your preferred forum view just below to the left on the main forum entrance. You will see three icons. Try them out and see what you prefer.   Fluid view allows you, if you are a signed up member, to see the newest topic posts in either all forums (select none or all) or in just your favorite forums (select the ones you want to see when you come to Fishing Minnesota). It keeps and in real time with respect to Topic posts and lets YOU SELECT YOUR FAVORITE FORUMS. It can make things fun and easy. This is especially true for less experienced visitors raised on social media. If you, as a members want more specific topics, you can even select a single forum to view. Let us take a look at fluid view in action. We will then break it down and explain how it works in more detail.   The video shows the topic list and the forum filter box. As you can see, it is easy to change the topic list by changing the selected forums. This view replaces the traditional list of categories and forums.   Of course, members only can change the view to better suit your way of browsing.   You will notice a “grid” option. We have moved the grid forum theme setting into the main forum settings. This makes it an option for members only to choose. This screenshot also shows the removal of the forum breadcrumb in fluid view mode. Fluid view remembers your last forum selection so you don’t lose your place when you go back to the listing. The benefit of this feature is easy to see. It removes a potential barrier of entry for members only. It puts the spotlight on topics themselves, and not the hierarchical forum structure. You as a member will enjoy viewing many forums at once and switching between them without leaving the page. We hope that fluid view, the new functionality is an asset that you enjoy .

Reasonable Price to Sell Vexilar FL-18

Recommended Posts

Just looking for some opinions on what a reasonable price to sell my Vexilar FL-18 Genz Pack might be.  They currently retail for $399 at Fleet Farm. I've only used mine for 2 winters, and  probably less than 10 times on the ice. Still have the box, charger, battery is in good shape, etc. Basically like new.

 

Tried to do some research but can't find many FL 18s on C-List, nor the For Sale section of HSO. Prices for other models are all over the place.  Was thinking $250 would be a price I could live with and would be a good deal for the buyer. But wanted some other opinions from folks who have perhaps purchased a used one or done some research on one. If I decide to sell it I want to be firm on my price - won't be looking to negotiate.

That's a good point RL_SD. Although, after Black Friday a lot of the really good deals will be over until later in the winter when they're trying to dump inventory. For what it's worth, I think I paid about $320 for mine when at the end of season - so that deal you saw at Scheel's was pretty good.

$250-$275 for a used one is abount perfect. An FL8 will sell for $200.

Thanks for all the input guys. When I go to sell I'll price it at $250. I'm comfortable knowing it's a good unit that has been taken care of and used very little. I don't have any complaints about it, but when I saw my buddies Hummingbird Helix-5 w/GPS last winter that seemed like an ideal set-up for me, and can also be used on the boat up at the cabin.

vex can be used on a boat too.

 

Yeah I know, but it doesn't seem to be the most practical, particularly when trolling. Not sure about other models, but the FL-18 adjusts in 10-foot increments, so you would spend half your time adjusting the dials.

Well all that and the helix has like 10x the features.

 

I paid $275 for a hsolist FL18 pro pack maybe 8 years ago.  I know they have dropped in price and at the time they were the top of the line.  Still going strong though, but it's been on backup/loaner duty since I got a 'bird.
