HUMMINGBIRD

8 posts in this topic

Does anyone know anything about these new flashers? I checked them out on their HSOforum and they looked pretty nice and I was thinking about picking one up, but don't know if I can change from the vex or not. I am planning on upgrading my vex this year and they have 3 different ones with the middle one being reasonably priced. Just wondering if anyone knows anything about them yet?

I haven't used one myself but I know someone that has and he thought they were good units. Lots of guys are excited about them this year, that's for sure.

You can check them out here if you like. There is a Free Case Rebate on the Ice 45 flasher (the middle one) right now.

If I were you, I'd try to hold off one year on buying a new flasher if a Hummingbird is what you want. Let them get the bugs worked out so next years model should be really cool. The one thing that has concerned some anglers is the buttons and how well they hold up in cold/wet climates=freezing.

We have a pro fisherman in Madison Lake that used one all last winter. He loved it. Humminbird could have released them last year but wanted to test them for a season. So yes, they are new to the market, but they have been out on the ice for a season.

We have them in stock and set up for you to test them out.

It's almost fuzzy warm feeling when all said and done complain/suggestion for a digital depth read out. Helps me when I forget which depth setting I'm reading.

I just got back from Gander Mt. and they had all of them in stock and on display. What impressed me was that even the 35 had 2 different cone angles and also the floating transducer and was under $300.

I saw that the Red Rock Store has the Ice 55 already marked down to $455. That's a pretty sweet deal! Let the price wars begin. smile

    • Tysons chicken tender, Top sirloin steak, pork chop, burgers seasoned to taste - crispy crowns, tutor tots, fries - beer batter shore lunch Walleye, Crappie all better than deep fryer, oven or gas grill. Just do potato first & keep hot in oven at 250. Even Spam is better than pan fryed but if your under 40 you may not have a clue about Spam.
    • Yes spray it, or wipe it down with an oiled paper towel before you use it.  I use a little ball of aluminum foil to scrub them after the cook, but while they are still warm. They make disposable grill topper grates that are handy too when you are cooking something that is going to be really messy.
    •   Non-matching carpet and drapes have been known to cause numerous issues, too, with or without beetles, especially in Los Angeles. Keep the hamsters safe by putting in a zip-loc bag during spraying.
    • Yes, I agree with you, but there are some professionals in Queens NY who provides an eco-friendly spray, which is not harmful.
    • I smoked a pork shoulder yesterday that turned out great, but the rack it sat on took a lot of soaking and scrubbing to get clean afterwards. Got any tricks to keep the rack less crusty? Spray it with Pam before the smoke or??
    • I stopped at a small engine shop on my way up north Monday and he confirmed what RebelSS said. I got some yellow tubing and after struggling for almost 1/2 hour, got the lines reconnected and went out and whacked some weeds. Thanks for all the replies.
    • I read somewhere that the chemicals used by Queens NY pest control caused male pattern baldness and birth defects in pet hamsters. 
    • Last Friday, I saw a beetle at my home's carpet. It is very difficult for me to get rid with this beetle and I also saw some eggs were laying on the carpet, which was quite damaging. Then on a recommendation of my neighbor I had called up the Queens NY pest control services, who had used an insect spray and where the experts spray around the floorboards, furniture and on carpets and helped us by preventing the carpet beetles laying their eggs and removing all the food sources.
