Vexilar Update - Issue #011

It's Here, It's Here !

After many months of design, testing, and tweaking, the Vexilar FL-10
In-Dash Color Flasher is finally shipping. The FL-10 has been anxiously
awaited by many. Designed specifically for serious fisherman on the open
water, this new addition to our flasher family is sure to please anyone
who is looking for a high-speed, highly visible display. It fits into
the standard 3-3/8" to 3-1/2" hole so changing out that "other" unit
will be a snap. The FL-10 comes with a tight 12 degree beam Puck or
Transom style transducer which provides exceptional resolution and
structure definition. It is also available without the transducer for
adapting to the popular Minn Kota Universal Sonar system.

We're Not Done Yet
------------------

The popular FL-8SLT is getting a facelift. The soon to be released
FL-8SE is the next generation of the famous FL-8 series color flashers.
This "Special Edition" will incorporate the super bright high speed
display that's drawn rave reviews with the FL-18 while maintaining the
features and reliability that's made the FL-8 the most popular flasher
ever. Shipments of the new FL-8SE should start sometime late this
summer.

Hey, That's Interference !
--------------------------

There's nothing worse than some offending electrical device screwing up
the picture on your depth finder. The problem of interference between
different pieces of equipment in today's boats is getting worse and
worse. From the high performance engines to high thrust, high voltage
trolling motors stray juice is jumpin' around more and more. Check out
the latest Tip that explains all of the different types of interference
and tells you ways to solve these problems.

Your Vexilar's Not in the Closet, Is It?
----------------------------------------

With the last ice fishing season a thing of the past, we've all turned
our attention to the open water. If you purchased one of our flashers
for ice fishing in the last few years, but have just been storing it
away for the summer, you're missing out on one of the best open water
fish finder/depth finders there is. More and more anglers are finding
that an FL series flasher can show you more fish, bait, and structure
information than most of the graphs available today. Serious walleye
anglers are utilizing the tremendous resolution and bottom makeup
identification abilities of the display to hone in on their prey, while
the devoted bass anglers are discovering how the FL flashers can
outperform just about anything else in the heaviest milfoil and
hydrilla. And everyone benefits with the true real-time update that no
LCD can offer. Even if you dread giving up that fifteen hundred dollar
screen, you can't miss by putting an FL-8 or FL-18 right next to it. And
with our Interference Rejection technology, you can do it without worry.

Vexilar offers a wide variety of transducers and accessories that allow
you to get the full benefit of your flasher on the open water. With a
small investment, you can take that larger investment out of that closet
and put it to good use all year 'round.

Looking for a Great Deal?
-------------------------

The Factory Outlet is well stocked with lots of flashers and LCDs that
are in great condition. Whether you're looking at getting something for
your boat, something portable to take on that trip coming up, or an ice
fishing setup for the season ahead, the selection is about as good as it
gets right now. These units will save you big bucks over the in-store
price and come with the same warranty as the new product. The only
problem is that availability is limited, so don't put it off too long.

The week is over, so get out and fish! Well, unless you're retired, a
full-time pro or a guide, then go shopping or something so the rest of
us have a chance. You had all week to fish.

The Vexilars I have used shoot through aluminum better then anything else, glass too.

I have not gotten any complaints about the interference from there trolling motor. Most guys like them for that reason as well. The frequency is not in the same range as other units, so it is less likely to transfer.

Mitch at Vexilar, or the other techs would be the best people to ask that stuff. I just have never had any problems, but, maybe some motors will due to some freaky frequency deal, not sure?

Again, more good Q' & A's for the Vex techs to answer.

Do yu plan to mount it side by side with the X-15, your Vex?

What Vex you talking?

Even with units known to interfere, if you keep the ducer cables apart, and the ducer too, they will not mess each other up. Separate power sources also help isolate interference.

I run a Bottom-line side-finder next to my FL-8-SLT and it is fine. The Bottomline unit will be gone soon. I will have the NEW Vexilar CLC-200 color graph in it's place, right next to the Fl-18. No place to hide now Miss Piggy!

I use an FL 8 mounted on my dash for instant depth readings. My ducer is mounted in the boat and shoots thru 3/16" thick aluminum. My edge is mounted on the bow for off plane use. The daul ducers for the edge are mounted in the boat and right next to my FL 8 ducer. No interference problems at all.

The Vex flashers preform extremely well at high speeds, they keep you safe.

I found a few years back that the FL-8 with the aid of the S-Cable was key to seeing through clutter caused by turbulence on rivers. Other units freaked out in the bubbles, the Vex tuned it out very well.

The low power output is key to this see-all tuning. Hi-Power just picks up more "Stuff", not fish, just "Stuff".

The new Vexilar flasher units with the built in "Suppression" capabilities make this an even easier operation.

You will see more, and run safer, and catch more fish because of this technology.

    • A CO2 detector also protects you from what comes into your house thru a cracked window. Had mine go off last week on red. Turns out the wind had changed and generator exhaust was now blowing towards house. Generator was 50' from the house. 
    • After I got laid off awhile back I searched all of the above daily.  There would be some duplicate jobs posted on every site but a large number would only be found on one site or the other.  Companies seem to have their preferred job board and then stick to it for all their job postings so you really need to look at all of them.    Also don't over look the idea of targeting companies.  If you know a certain area you'd be looking to move to look to see what companies in that area might be able to use someone with your skills.  Then look at those companies job boards if they have them or send in a resume to their HR dept to see if they have any openings.  There are a lot of hidden jobs out there that don't get posted to a normal job board so you need to be savvy to find them.    A recruiter can also help but you need to find the right recruiter. I worked with a few and only one was really any good and had connections to the right kind of jobs for me.  If you can find one that specializes in your field then it might be worth connecting with one.  When i did it didn't cost me anything but a little bit of my time and they were able to hook me up with a decent contract job to help fill in the gap until i got on full time somewhere. 
    • Trump Touts "People Are Seeing Big Stuff” After GM Unveils 7,000 New U.S. Jobs   Confirming rumors that leaked yesterday, GM has just announced plans to invest $1 billion in its U.S. manufacturing operations and add 7,000 jobs domestically, over the next "few years".  Of course, the move follows similar announcements from Ford and Fiat-Chrysler over recent weeks in an apparent effort to appease the incoming Trump administration amid threats of a 35% import tariff and after years of outsourcing automotive manufacturing jobs to Mexico.  To add icing to the cake, GM notes that 450 of the new jobs will come from insourcing jobs previously moved to Mexico.          The winning continues...
    • Hyundai To Boost Investment In The US To $3.1 Billion Over 5 Years   Korea's Hyundai Motor Group said it plans to lift U.S. investment by 50 percent to $3.1 billion over five years and may build a new plant there - the latest auto firm to announce fresh spending after President-elect Donald Trump threatened to tax imports.      
    • This is our year! i feel there is something different about them! I see the passion and intensity they have. Putting the puck on the net is key!
    • OK, let's play you're game. Deficits and debt are no problem, I'll take your word for it.    Please tell me then:
      Why does YOUR party want to reduce the debt?
      Why was your party against debt when Obama was racking it up?
      Why do you vote for Republicans when you don't agree with them on very many issues?
    • What I worried about in the past and why I was not to high on them was because Parise and Sutter were supposed to carry the load but that is evidently no longer the case.  The Sophomores and Juniors have "figured it out" and have stepped up and are carrying the team...not to mention Stall is "reborn".  IMO as long as Dubnyk stays healthy I don't think we have anything to worry about. It is all about he playoffs now as they'd have to take a huge step back not to get in IMO....we'll so how far they can go....with this new found success.  
    • Grain Belt is bottled by Schell's - either one works for me, although my preference is Schell's Deer Brand.  But it's not stocked in a lot of bars or package stores here in the north country.
