If you wish to use the Vexilar year around consider buying the Pro Pack Deluxe.

This will be the best buy an will give you the whole enchilada for winter and summer boat use. Duel transducers, wiring, mounting hardwear, plus the full Pro Pack charger system along with all the key toys you will need for winter.

I do like the Vexilar for use in all seasons. Rumor has it the new Vexilars will be more day light friendly for viewing so ask for the new style if it is now available to the public.

I just ordered the new Deluxe Pro Pack and hope to get the new upgrade from the factory rep.

This package is certainly the best buy I know of for a 4 season system.

You will love in on your boat. I have my flasher mounted on my bow and it's great, especially in the weeds where your LCD will have more problems.

Thanks for the acknowledgment. Sounds like a good outfit to have in the boat.

I received the new Vexilar last week and am very pleased with the visibility in strong sun, much better that the older models. The appearance of this unit is the same as the FL-8 SLT just a few new tweaks internally that enhances overall preformance.

The dial is very easy to read in high noon sun in all colors, that is something considering my poor color vision. I still prefer to wear a good pair of polarized eye wear on the ice and water if for no other reason than to protect my vision an reduce eye fatigue.

I still think if you choose a Vexilar FL-8 you will be very pleased in it's all season use.

I have a "Hondex" which is the same as the Vexilar. I use mine year round and it is a great addition to the boat. My Hondex has saved me in the weeds and certain conditions when my LCD did not work properly. I have a permanent transducer attached to the boat and a Johnny Ray mount. Works slick.

    • 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

    • wren chick sat on a chair on the deck for over 2 hours. cute little bugger

    • 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.
