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

    • I was glad I had scratchers on thursday,,,, after 7 miles on the trail my skid looked show room clean ,,, put the scratchers down and all was good ,,,Trails are still rideable up here but showing some snert,,, Gonna switch to ice fishing till we get some snow cover again 
    • I thought it looked cool, the way it unfolds.   Run time indeed is an issue, and it would probably take slogging through them one by one to tell.
    • U have to keep telling us.......
    • duurrrr whats a heat exchanger I sold my trail sled and only have my f/c ice fishing sled now.   I was thinking about buying a new trail sled beginning of this year but glad I didn't I just don't have time for both ice fishing and sledding oh the hardships I have   I wish I lived in the mountains I think snowmobiling would win over fishing
    • Have the 8" k-drill. Bought it at the fishing show. Had it out about 8 different times and love it. No complaints. Very light weight, drill about 20-25 holes out each time. Only on Monday did I have to use a second battery, had about 21 inches of ice. I have two 5ah batteries for it.
    • It was awesome.....it is not exactly a new thing for presidents to lie, but the guy actually brought in clappers to clap for his lies about pee and crowd gate.....as this means somehow he wasn't lying his a$$ off?  Watching Spicer later in the day trying to provide cover for the boss was almost painful. ....if it wasn't so funny. No clappers there    #sidetrackedfromallthefirstdaypromises
    • Looks like great sub-flooring but not sure how well chip board products would hold up for a trailer top? Even if it's a covered trailer the slush and salt will do a number on the bottom side I would think? For the cost I would just put some 5/8th treated plywood down.
    • I used to sip cognac with a beer and I didn't even get in to whiskeys or bourbons until 8 or 10 years ago, so as a novice I started with the Canadian blends like Crown, Tangle Ridge and Pendleton and I'm more of a sipper using the old fashioned glasses.  I can't give recommendations on any of the really good brands, but if you ever see some of this... run screaming from the bar.  
    • Catfish is right up there with walleye, perch, trout, steelhead, salmon, flounder, grouper.....
    • What does it matter what Bernie Sanders had figured out considering the DNC blatantly rigged the primary against him? And then they tried with all their might to do it again and were exposed.   Face it, you party is fueled by people who are showing that they are the very ones they claim to be fighting against.    Immoral, intolerant, violent, judgemental and full of hate.
