Vexilar - hockey puck transducers

4 posts in this topic

I'm looking into using my FL-18 during the summer on my trolling motor. Does anyone have a strong opinion as to which angle transducer to get? I'll be using it mostly on eyes in 10-35 feet of water. I understand the benefits of going both wide and narrow beam. I'm looking for someone who has used one or both of them and your thoughts. Thanks.

I just did this, I put on a 12 deg xducer. I wish I had put on the wider one on the troller as it is difficult if not impossible to keep your bait in the cone unless you are anchored and vertical jigging. Not to mention if your troller is running, you risk wrapping the line around the prop if you want to see your bait!

The wider angle transducer may only make this a little better.

I also just did this. I purchased the 12 degree transducer in the trolling motor kit.
The 12 degree works great, but don't plan on vertical jigging under it and seeing your bait 100% of the time, if much at all. It works well if anchored or not using the trolling motor, but like mentioned you risk getting the line in the trolling motor.
The 19 degree isn't going to make that big of difference here. I would stick with the 12, they are selling nearly 95% 12 degree units now.

I also purchased the Pro-mount, very good design and really low profile! For $13 I would add this to your selection and if you want extra bases are only $7!

Thanks for the info guys.

Hey Grabs,

I just checked out the pro-mount on their page. It looks pretty nice. Where did you pick yours up?

    • PF - Sorry to let you down.  I see you are a slug expert!!!!
    • Sheesh.  I clicked on this from the recent topics page thinking there was a new deer hunting thread......  Get a spray bottle with a salt solution and give them a shower. I think water with Dawn soap might be an option

    • I think last year was probably the best/first year we should have gone for it at the deadline so no regrets on that one. We got Pommers at the deadline as well but he had some years left and we were able to resign him and overall he has produced for us so no biggy there either. I'm sure we all wish we could take back the Matt Moulson trade back, that was the only bad one that cost us a couple of 2nd rounders and he looked terrible, but again hindsight is always 20/20. The rest were all minor deals that didn't do much either way.    Someone will get moved at some point, we just can't fill out a team and or sign Grandlund & Nino without it, at least not that I can see. Sounds like we had a deal for the Canadians first but their guy was there so they kept the pick, no problem with Fletcher being patient on the trade front, might have to wait until some teams don't fill their needs via free agency before a move happens. 

       
    • anyone else have any issues with ChartInstaller? I last used it on my laptop a month or so ago and it worked fine. I am getting ready to go to North Dakota for a couple days and wanted to download some areas to my card that I hadn't before.   I removed the sd card from my Hummingbird Helix and put it in the laptop. Opened the CharInstaller program that was already installed and was prompted to update. I downloaded the new Chart Installer.exe file and no matter how many times I download it, reboot and retry install etc it will not install. I just get an error "There has been an error. Unknown Error upacking file C:/Program Files (x86)/Chart Installer/nwjc.exe   So while doing the upgrade I lost my desktop icon with no software to update my chart. I understand there is a 1 year subscription but I just got my navionics+ and put it on this card last October.   Any ideas?    
    • Gotta let youse guys carry on wid something!!! 
    • so why did you say it then!!!!
    • IDK, I am kinda liking this show more and more. Its much better than the first season. Yeah, Madison has her quirks, but there are some interesting characters and this whole conflict with the indigenous people now is intriguing.
