Which depth finder for me?

3 posts in this topic

I am looking to buy a vexilar sometime soon. Is the FL18 really worth the extra money? I'm on slight budget and I only get out about once a week..

Anyone know of any current sales anywhere?

I went with the FL-18 for the Auto Zoom and 10 levels on Interference Rejection for ice fishing and the Bottom Lock Mode and Compatability w/ my Universal Sonar on my trolling motor for when she is mounted on my boat. For me it was worth it. Most places I researched had the FL-18 at 379.99 for the Genz Pack. You can probably get a better deal on a new unit on hsolist, if you can wait a little longer.

There are many folks on this site who also will tell you to check out the Marcum products.

I sold my FL-18 after seeing how well the Marcum LX-3 worked. Im not sponsored or affliated with either and as a working guy watching a budget I would say get the best for your money (Marcum) I saw at Cabelas they sell a pack they make for $349 or something like that. Id do alot of research on both.
Cheers!!!

    • Moved my fan today  cut heat up time in half very noticeable improvement 
    • Well, she's still right, you know..
    • Went out pheasant hunting today and ran into a trapper setting 330s along a creek for beaver .  I'm not much into trapping but know how these things work, and after having a civilized conversation with him his were all in the water and he let know where they were located so at least the pooch wouldn't get his leg caught in it. don't feel bad, he hasn't caught much either . 
    • That may be, but it sounds a lot like "I didn't get a job" butthurt.  That grifter would be singing the praises of Trump's genius if she was on the payroll.   Eh, why not?  When they aren't taking credit for things they had nothing to do with, they are taking blame for things they had nothing to do with. Pence is still the governor of Indiana
    • sounds like from animals that eat meat. 
    • Huh?  Sorry,  I should have known better.
    • Great idea, have you looked into what it would take? 
    • I think what fish meant was it might not hurt to allow more than 60 days for a season in states like MN.   When the birds are late we can still have a chance at the northern birds.  If freeze up and the flights are early, the longer season won't matter.  There won't be much if anything to shoot.   I get what you're saying about lengthening the gap, but that's a roll of the dice since we have little chance of knowing when freeze up will get those late birds moving.  How long do you make the gap?   After a year in my new area of the state I can adjust my expectations and chase more wisely next year.  This year I was anticipating much better.  I think that's the worst part - the big push being the big let down.
    • Wool socks are a must, they insulate even if wet. Cotton socks in any warm boot will make your feet cold. The warmth of the boot while you are active make your feet sweat. I have the LaCross Iceman from a couple decades ago, still no need to go buy something different.
    • Some wild meat can have trichinosis.  Domestic pork no longer has it. I'm pretty sure that venison doesn't have a parasite issue.
