Need new Vex Ducer....Which one do I get??

6 posts in this topic

Had this Ducer for about 10 years now and it is starting to act up. I would like to get the same degree ducer as the old one. Question is which one did I have. I am assuming that it is a 12 degree one but not sure. This ducer is off of the old SLT model Vex.

Also what are people opinions on the best all around degree option. I understand that it is dependent on what type of fishing that you do. I fish everywhere from shallow panfish to deepwater lake trout (down to roughly 70 Ft).

Easiest way to figure the ducer you have is compare it to new model in the store - should be similar in diameter. Smallest Diameter is 19 deg, largest is 9.

12 deg is most versital. If you do a lot of mixed shallow and deep laker fishing you may want to consider a dual cone 9/19 degree (uses a switch to flip between the two), but it cost you an extra $30.

If you want to read more about the technical aspects/considerations on the ducer angle, the Vex HSOforum has some good info.

I have the dual cone and love it for shallow and very deep water. I have the FL-18 and it came that way not sure if you can use them on other ones though.

If you fish bottom oriented near steep drop offs or if you fish deep water you should go with a 9 degree. If you fish more of a flat bottom or more suspended fish the 19 degree is better.

If you look at the top of your trasducer where the cable goes into it you should find where it tells you what degree it is.
