vexilar transducer

5 posts in this topic

I recently purchased an older Vexilar FL-8. It came with a puck style transducer which is attached to an articulated arm. Does anyone know anything about these transducers and how they work through the ice?

I used the puck style transducer that came with my FL8 for several years and it worked OK. You need to mount a bull's eye bubble level on top so that you know you are pointing straight down for optimal response. It can be annoying to re-level every time you move if the arm doesn't hold position very well. I think that the puck is a 19 deg.

It should be in the plastic at the top of the 'ducer near where the cable enters. Look closely, sometimes it's really small...
