Color point

6 posts in this topic

I have a color point and the one of the pins broke on the male end of the transducer plug that goes inside the color point. I looked at it and it is easy to replace but I can't find where to buy the plug. I e-mail Hummingbird and they said they would have to fix it at a cost of about $40. Any information on where to get one?

I just went to Zercom's HSOforum and they have ABSOLUTELY NO info on the colorpoints! Its like they never existed. They must have dropped it from their new product line. I just bought one last year and love it but now I wonder how long we can expect to get parts if needed. Really ticks me off mad.gif

Boys and Girls, and all who own Colorpoint flashers. I e-mailed both Vexilar and Humminbird . I asked Vex if they had purchased the colorpoint or its tech. or had anything to do with them in the future as to service . Vexilar said " This is not true". I asked Humminbird what the status of the colorpoint was . The answer was "We are no longer making the colorpoint ,we will continue to have parts and service, we have sold nothing to Vexilar". So there it is and as a very satisfied colorpoint I am **** sad to find out that I now own an obsolete piece of equipment. I know I bought the right thing at the time now I can only hope it lasts forever. How does anyone else feel?

Thanks for the ideas I will check these places out.Does anybody know what the three different pins are for? I broke 1 of them off and the color point still seems to work ok.Are they for the different depth ranges?(I have not tried the deepest setting yet to see if it still works, but the first two work)

I love my color point and I hope that they will continue to support it.

    • I hunt zone 1.  Very interesting to see those numbers.  From what I have seen the herd is showing signs of rebound in our neighborhood.  We're a ways off from being able to tolerate hunters choice, but we're seeing deer again finally.  I agree the herd is in better shape than 2-3 years ago when many people saw no deer and no signs of deer.     So what does it all mean?  I suspect the widespread pain of the glut in major swaths of zone 1 for the dark years has woke some up to the idea of passing does.  There was certainly more opportunity with fewer bucks-only zones and larger doe tag numbers in certain DPAs.    What will be interesting is how the DNR responds to more deer on the landscape up here but fewer does being shot.  We had two doe tags in our group this year and we proudly tossed them in the fire, unfilled, at the end of season.

    • I have this problem from time to time but not often.  Sometimes there are little bubbles on the bottom of the transducer and sometimes the ducer isn't below the ice, sometimes it just takes 5 or 10 minutes of sitting in the hole before it starts to pick up the jig.  Other times it works flawlessly.

    • I hate to break your bubble, but your vote and other Trump voters in Minnesota were wasted votes the same as you say those who voted 3rd party were wasted.
