Sweet new color options available for Vexilars

10 posts in this topic

For several years now Vexilar has had the ability to convert the LED's in your Vex to more color viewable friendly pallets to accommodate folks who deal with color blindness issues. Although available for a while it was not widely advertised or known of. I am happy to announce that it is now available in all models, or as an upgrade to an older unit, whatever you so wish.

This is great news for me as I am one of the many males whom surfers from Male pattern color blindness and I am pumped to get mine on the ice.

Below you will find the details to the new packages and upgrade configurations.

Press Release:

Vexilar Blue Light Conversion

Have your FL Series Flasher colors converted to the new unique look of Cool Blue. The bright red color stays the same, but green and orange are replaced with vibrate Blue and Purple. Great for giving a striking change to the way your flasher looks. It's also great for those who are color blind and have never been able to see the colors do what they are meant to do.

The Blue Light Conversion is available for these models...

* FL-8*

* FL-8SLT

* FL-8se

* FL-12

* FL-18

* FL-20

*Blue Light Conversion is only compatible with Vexilar FL-8s with serial numbers of 800000 or higher.

How to Get the Blue Light Conversion

for Your Unit.

The conversion fee will be $59.00. Included in this fee is the conversion and a complete unit check-up. We'll look your entire system over to find any potential problems like worn brushes, circuit problems, or a weak transducer. If anything looks to be a problem, we'll contact you to see if you want to take care of the problem now.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

This new service and feature will open the door for many folks whom may not have been able to enjoy and appreciate all the capability's and opportunity's a flasher offers one on the ice and on the water. I can see this being a popular option for folks with and without color viewing limitations as it is an attractive color pallet for the user.

That is a pretty sweet deal. I know quite a few people that are color blind and this would make it much easier for them to use. Thanks for the info Ed.

Wouldn't Red, Blue, and Purple blend together as red and blue make purple?

I'm one of the lucky 4% of the males who suffer from color blindness but I have no problems reading my vex. The new colors look cool and should help those that can't read the standard red,yellow,green......BT

For the conversion, contact Vexilar service center. The info is on the web site. New Blue Light units can also be ordered direct with the option.

Should also see these new Blue Light units in some stores too in the near future.

I wonder if Marcum will respond and offer a change. I switched from Vex to Marcum and preferred the color sceme on my vex.

    • Yes, you do have to have at least a weak cell signal and battery for the GPS to work. I know that can be challenging at times in the woods.
    •   Not sure about the new V6, but the old inline 6 was bulletproof, and had a lot of low end torque, which is a desirable feature in an off-road vehicle.       Any 1/2 ton pickup truck from the 70's and early 80's in particular, had a much better frame than a Jeep.  Body panels rust in all of them.   Not saying this is a deal-breaker for a Jeep, just something to watch for, since it is a very common problem.    
    • After doing a little looking there are a lot of options to these things. Anyone know how that new V6 compares to the in line 6? Some of the stuff I would like is the bigger tires and because I would consider putting a plow on it a lower rear end gear. The Dana 44 rear axel would be nice and would want a hard and soft top. I'm in no hurry to get one so Ill wait till the right one comes around. There are a lot of them out there that never leave the tar. More options in the later models as far as transmissions to. So it also comes down to how much I want to spend on one and how late of a model to buy. Sure don't want to spend 35K on a new one.
    • Well yeah but can you name a vehicle built for off road including any domestic pickup truck that doesn't have issues with rust. Fenders, rockers, frames etc. If you play in the mud and salt you need to maintain them. UTVs are no different. Ask yourself why Polaris would put the air filter canister intake in the rear wheel well so it is sucking in the air from the dustiest area they could possibly draw it from resulting in a 4k bill when the motor grenades.    Jeeps are fun, used ones can be had at a reasonable price but by their nature you need to be careful when you purchase because if the previous owner drove them the way they were marketed then they may have some issues.   But the aftermarket has an amazing amount of mods,upgrades and accessories to make your Jeep into anything you want and because the generally go 10 years between major design changes there are a large number of parts available if you need them.     
    • Anyfish it's still points and way better than a zero for points! Congrats on the fine eating bird.
    • Pick up a Jake morning.  Not going help the team score, if at all.  But it sure will taste good.
    • It's been very quiet in the woods the past few days.  Some gobbling this morning.
    • Nice! Way to go! Hope I'm able to get out and enjoy hunting when I'm that age.
    • Well, one of the advantages to owning a Jeep is there are always plenty of Jeep owners out there looking for parts, so if you get ahold of one with a bad frame, you could always part it out and sell the parts to another Jeep owner who believes they have a good frame....
