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.

    • Money to be made, and the cold war (you remember the cold war, right?) was the reason we did various things.    Go read about Stalin and his successors to see why we were worried about the Soviet Union.   What we did might or might not have turned out like we hoped but that doesn't change what the situation was.   
    • Dave, your economist wants immigrants to meet requirements like posting a bond or having assets.  Why should they do that when they can just come in with nothing through the porous borders?   Isn't the argument about open borders vrs controlled immigration?   Would the 11 million undocumented have to go back home and post a bond?     If the US through its political process decides to allow immigrants, that's cool.    But that is not what we have now.   Better pick that mike back up.  
    • I'm still trying to figure out why we pushed the coup in Ukraine, other than to cause trouble of course.
    •   Ditto, almost exactly the same. I wouldn't spend a ton of money on decoys if your just starting.
    •   To tell you the truth. I have never cleaned a cottontail ever that didn't have flees all over them in the winter. So I just stop hunting them and went for Snowshoes which are bigger and never found flees on them, oddly?
    •   Seems the hares are down from when I was younger but the cottontails seem plentiful enough. I popped these with a 20 gauge shotgun while grousing
    • I use to go for Snowshoes a lot in the winter with a scoped 22. It was fun sneaking through the pines looking for them. See the little black eye and "bing".  Seems like they just fell off the face of the earth for many years so I just gave up trying for them. I'm sure with the big "Down with Fur" thing and not many taking out as many Fox and Yotes by trapping it really took a hit on the bunnies!  I wrote the DNR back a few years ago and asked them about it and he said: we really don't manage the Rabbits at all. And he gave me the old "Grouse BS". Their just at the bottom of their 10 year cycle!   Seems to always be their answer!
