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.

    •   Anything you post on here from now on has no merit or credibility as far as I'm  concerned.  I wasn't even going to respond to this, but feel what you posted needed to be. If you wish to call my mother a dam, you will, the same as you called another persons mother that. I don't give a rats butt what your political views are, however when you start getting into personal attacks you had better look in a mirror. You don't probably don't know anyone on here personally, yet you attack someone on a personal bases, call there mother a dam and ridicule them because they had a lower portion of a leg amputated due to something they can control, but had no control whether they have the illness and sometime that illness makes you pay a price. BD2 has that illness he can control to a certain extent where he can lead a normal life, however there will be complications and from what I know of him he will accept that. I don't know DB2 personally, I've never met him, I've debated against some thing on this where he and I have had different views, I respect his opinions even though I disagree on many, BUT I SURE AS H--- DON"T ATTACK HIS ANCESTORY OR  ANY TYPE OF DISABILLITY

    • Great to see this in Minnesota. Trout has been on my bucket list and will happen this year. The mix of largies and smalls really works for this show and plays into the guys heads. I was pulling for Hack. He's become one of my favorites. I think these guys are gaining a new appreciation for MN.  Except maybe the Lane Bros.

    •   Wanderer, you better scaddle on out of these parts before your soul gets taken and your brain gets fried too!
    •   Yeah, you better stick with Bob's girl above old timer. She wouldn't swallow what your selling either!
