locator advise

6 posts in this topic

Looking for a locator to replace my old 2330 flasher. Would like a bow-mount unit that I can also use for ice fishing. Any suggestions?

If you want to stay with a flasher unit the easiest is to purchase a Vexilar or Zercom ice fishing unit. Then pick up a summer kit that has a puck transducer. That way all you do is swap the head unit to go from season to season.

Thanks Rob. That's what I did with the 2330. I've been looking at the Vexilar, but heard that the Zercom unit is a good unit too. Any ideas?

Both units have good and bad points, just like anything else. If you can see both of them set up at the same time, look at the features and compare the colors of the display. Pick the one that is easiest for you to read and operate. You will hear lots of personal opinions, about power and target seperation. The fact is they are both good units and both work on the water very well. The biggest thing is confidence in your equiptment if you have that you have the best unit for you.

If this is any help, I was at Vexlar yesterday and they told me the new FL-18 flasher will be released at the end of this month. Check it out on there web-site. It looks pretty cool. Hope this helps.http://www.vexilar.com/fl18.html

    •   Well may be instead of buying a few over priced pizza's and eating them while you're sitting on the internet Beoshing about others doing something with their time and money you can get off your atheist ars and go help the folks with a few blanks! Freeking Hypocrite much!

    •   Dave- I'm as disillusioned as you with regards to our two main parties and I've been known to lurk around the edges of the Libertarian camp. What keeps me from coming all the way in is silly stuff like this.   You're as delusional as an altar boy that thinks the priest wants to be his "friend" if you believe churches are going to fix anything. They never have and they never will.    If churches help the poor, why are there so many poor people?   Here are a couple great examples of christians helping poor people- 1- A group from my community just got back from a mission trip to some central american rathole where 27 men that paid over $2000 apiece to go 1500 miles to build what were more or less 3 garages for some poor community. A little time for sightseeing and photo taking and they are back home with tons of pretty pictures proud of themselves for doing gods work. 2- The wife just bought 3 overpriced crappy pizzas from my niece to fund her New Orleans mission trip. A bunch of kids will raise several thousand dollars from suckers like me, take a nice trip somewhere I never went as a kid, see some sights and paint a couple houses.   Meanwhile, we live in a county where real, abject poverty actually exists. Students of mine go to bed hungry, don't have enough blankets in their house and live in homes one wouldn't leave their dog in.
    • Last week I got my two Helix Mega in. I a lot of people ask me how I install them and how to avoid interference. Follow these tips and interference will be a thing of the past.

    • You really don't need much insulation under the ground slab, I like to use pole barn ins.[bubble wrap] or 1 inch r board [heat rises],gyp crete works but it is patented and can only be installed by certified and licensed factory contractors. they mix it on sight, it cant be mixed by youre local ready mix provider,as the formula is property of gyp crete.
