Hummingbird Flashers

4 posts in this topic

Has anyone else seen the new Hummingbird flashers? I saw one last weekend on a trip to Cabelas and was impressed with them. They have the on screen battery level indicator, dual beam, and three different color patterns you can choose from with one being 5 colors, and adjustable zoom. I normally don't buy things the first year they come out so that the bugs can get worked out but they definately look like something that will compete with the other two flasher companies. Has anyone on here tried one? I'm sure theres someone on here that did some testing for them.

I haven't used them on the ice yet myself but have seen them in a demo and spent a lot of time talking to the reps. They sure look like great units and are loaded with features. I know there's a few guys here that have tried them and have good thngs to say about them.

I have all 3 models on my HSOforum, feel free to check them out if you're interested. The link is in my signature.

I would like to hear feedback about them also. They look like a great unit. Considering my first flasher that got used for ice fishing was a humminbird I am very curious. My vexilar still works like a champ but there is always something better.

Too bad there aren't places you could rent them and try them out before you buy them. It would make buying one much more fun and you would have a much more informed desicion on what you get. I would totally be willing to shell out 15 bucks too figure out that I liked or disliked the unit before I dropped 4 bills on it.

I did find another thread after some searching that had some more opinions. Do a search on here for hummingbird and you will see some more opinions.

    • So, losing pressure when off at night and at low speed fishing. Small leaks like Rebel said sounds about right. If it is running fine when at higher rpm's then the fuel pump, fuel flow and carb are keeping up the pressure needed then. The pressure is slowing leaking out some where which has to be a small leak at the diaphragm, fuel line connectors, or fuel pump seals. Good luck.
    • Parity, lots of parity in this league, that is a good thing but it sure makes it tough to win. Cullen has two cups already including last year so I'd be fine with the Sens or Nashville taking the whole thing. 
    • Pinhole or small tear in diaphragm.
    • Looking for ideas of what to check next.  I have a 1991 75hp Mariner outboard and I am losing pressure on my fuel line.  I have to pump the bulb first time out in the morning and then again if I fish in one spot for a while.  If I do not it will bog down on me and may or may not kill.  If I pump the bulb too much while I am bogging down I will partially flood the motor and kill it.  I then have to turn the key for several 15 second bursts or more to start the motor.   I have replace the bulb fuel line twice to make sure I didn't get a bad one the first time.  I also replaced the fuel line from my built in gas tank to where it goes to connect with the bulb gas line.   Does this sound like the fuel pump?  I want to eliminate any cheap fixes that I can before replacing the fuel pump.  I blew a cylinder a few years ago and I assume the carbs were all redone at that time by my guy.   I owned it for the past 20 years and I have only used non oxy fuel.   Any ideas?  Thanks in advance for any help.
    • Preds make it to the finals.  I thought someone said they were the last team in and technically the 16 seed.   Who ever they face in the finals it will be a battle, hope the Sens make it.  But would be nice to see Cullen get a cup.
    • My hunt in WI this past weekend was tough as well.  I found tons of ramps, they grow everywhere in the area we hunted, but zero morels.  I saw a few pheasant backs, but did not pick them as they did not interest me.  
    • I finally just said screw it, so I picked a couple of guys that I thought would do good (Christie, and Rojas) and some over looked guys that have had a little success this year, and were from the area.  Would never had expected Alton Jones Jr, to go from 80 something place on day 1 to the top 12.  Glad he was on my team though
    • Added these for the fry pan to go with some turkey also.  
    • If you haven't planted your tomatoes yet......plant them laying down on their side. Pick off all the branches up to the top.Lay the plant in a trench and cover the stem up to the top. Put a soil pillow under the top. Just be careful not to break the stem (I have). Tomatoes are the only plant that will send out roots from the buried stem. You will wind up with a large root ball to feed the plant. This also puts the roots closer to the surface where the soil is warmer instead of deep where it is cool.
    • Another disaster. I tried making relatively safe picks, and bombed. I have gone from the top 60 after two events all the way down to just over the 90th percentile. I need to just go with my gut
