Vexilar worn out

8 posts in this topic

My vexilar is making alot of noise. Heard that the brass ring inside may be worn out. Anyone know if this is repairable ? Cost ?

I think a lot of the guts are replaceable. Cost??? You'd have to call Vexilar. www.vexilar.com

Talked with the rep's from Vexilar at the sport show. Repair on a Fl-8 can run from $65-$95, depending on the ammount of repair needed.

One of the faq's on the Vexilar web page says: "The motor and display brush assembly, however, have a limited life time. You can expect to replace these two items every 3 to 5 years, if you use the unit regularly. Tip - Get the brushes replaced before they wear down too far, it may save your motor and some repair cost."

I contacted Vexilar and they told me that it would cost $60 to have this done.

Good luck!

Maybe it's time to buy a new Zercom Colorpoint... It is a better unit than Vexilar anyway...in my opinion.

Had great success with my Colorpoint this year.

Good Luck,

Skeets--

Why is it better? They are pretty much the same thing aren't they? Unless, of course, you consider Coke and Pepsi different.

Brad, check out this site, it compares the two units and Zercom wins hands down.

I have used both units before and I really like my Colorpoint.

By the way, I like Pepsi better than Coke!

Good Luck,

Skeets

That would be like comparing Ford and Chevy on a Chevy HSOforum, who is going to win?
Both are good units, and each have their good and bad points. Which one is better is in who, and how, the unit is being used. There are too many variables that can be changed slightly to make one unit appear to be better than the other. In the end they both work and both accomplish they same task.

    •   My Father-in-law (a master plumber) always used to say you only need to know 3 things to be a plumber:          sh*t doesn't run uphill         payday is on Friday         the boss is an ahole      
    • I've been getting them at Costco,  I've checked slyvee and sams but never see them.  Although one of the butcher's at slyvee says he can get them which might not be a bad idea since you can have some fat cut off before you pay per #. I picked one up a couple of weeks ago and it was about 2.80 a #, which isn't too bad yet considering bacon in the store can run quite a bit more than that.  You making bacon or doing pork belly burnt ends moon lake?
    • Excellent summer fishing.  Charters catching strong numbers.  Jig/minnow or jig/leech and bouncers with spinners with crawlers or minnows still producing walleyes. When the wind is right for pulling spinners, they have been lights out.  Walleyes being caught in varying depths, 7-31' of water.  Some shallow shorelines still producing. Pike mixed in all over the lake.    Walleyes in the Rainy River with a better morning/evening bite.  Trolling cranks or pulling spinners a good idea to cover more water. Smallmouth bass are out and about along shorelines and feeder streams. Sturgeon fishing opens again Saturday, July 1st.     Up at the NW Angle, water temps are in the low to mid 60’s. Wind blown shorelines are giving up walleyes via leeches or crankbaits along the weed line. Crawlers on a  gold and/or orange spinner are producing fish out of the mud between 22 - 26 feet. On the Canadian side, bottom bouncers and spinners have been filling the livewells outside of monument bay between 24-28 feet.  Jigging near Skeet and Kennedy Islands have produced nice sized walleye and numerous perch. Great smallmouth action in Tranquil channel and the mouth of Johnston passage. Muskie fishing picking up with high 40” class fish being caught with a few 50's from shallow bottom bays or adjacent to them.
    • Busy time of year out there so if u get canceled it is hard to rebook especially with the smaller operations. Bummer though as it can be a lot of fun if they are biting. 
    • I understand that you never really know when the Warriors are going to fall off or if they even will.  Hopefully the Wolves can make the playoffs and gain some experience, maybe teach the rest of the team how to play defense, so that in a few years we are knocking on the door and can lure in a top free agent to put us over the edge.  Its just an awful tough time to be a good team right now with the Warriors so clearly heads and shoulders above everyone else.
    • I couldn't have said it better myself pikestabber!  We have to go out there and do what we can now and not try to set up for "when the warriors are old" cuz the way the NBA is going who knows what players may join forces to set up the next "Warriors" squad.  Heck maybe the Wolves will be that next team !!  I just really love the addition of Butler and from the sounds of it we are not done yet and I am excited to see what will happen in free agency and if we could really land the likes of Kyle Lowry one of the other PG's that are hitting the FA market.  Nice to see the Wolves making moves!!
    • I would ask Getanet where to get some good ones!   Pork Belly Stinks Started by Getanet, May 1
    • So that means you ALMOST caught a fish!!   Real bummer!
