That would be significant news indeed, especially since a lot of their marketing is built around the "Old reliable" or "If it aint broke.." message.

A salesman from Scheels told me that they were dropping the FL8 last year. I could not believe that they would do that. I called Corey from Vex right away asking him what's up and he told me that he wanted the name of the salesman that told me that and the store I was in. I offered to hand the phone to him, but he wouldn't go for it. What Corey told me was, "Why would we drop a product that has got us to where we are today?" Personally, I doubt that they are going to drop the FL8, but they may add a couple more units to their line. I will see if I can get any info tomorrow.

Just got off the phone and no they are not coming out with anything as of yet. They are planning on keeping all the units in their product line. They have tested the "more power" theory and they don't want to take that route. The more power means different head units and different transducers. Doing this will only cause confusion for the customer. As of right now, their products are interchangeable with the exception of the FL12 and FL20 needing different power supplies. Other than that, they have all of their transducers to work for every unit. They were also swamped during January causing them to be out of FL18s and FL20 until next season. There is a waiting list however for reconditioned units.

    • dried smoked Jalepenos are called Chipotle.  
    • The Ring Bologna turn out great !! Another great spice from Curly's ! The Old Fashion franks were great in patty form without smoke and plan to give the finished product a try this weekend. Need to give his new Cajun spice a try soon.
    • Looks like you have the makings for some great spices at this rate.
    • I'm all with you until the Peanut Butter part?
    • Had to move the grill in the sun but it's running 125 with the tube. Way too many peppers in the fridge, thought I would try a small Bach. I'll let it go til dark then put em back on tomorrow.  Shooting to crumble for seasoning, any thoughts?
    • Thanks for the update O.T.C., let's hope for the best with all the rain. I haven't hit much gravel but I have been seeing a few here and there on County roads in the evenings.  Talked to my cousin yesterday, surprisingly they are on schedule for harvesting in his area which received a lot of rain through out the summer. But then again he likes to turn his fields black as soon as possible. 
    • Probably not far because his head is already up there.
    • I'll be bow hunting this spot next weekend, fri-sun and then possibly additional days depending on how things go and how much time I can get away from the wife and kids. My main stand is near a clearing that has 3 trails converging into one main trail that leads to appleville.  There is one crab apple tree at the end of the clearing exactly 20 yards from my stand.  The other apples they are eating are in the yard at the house on the property so hunting over them is off limits so I've got to hunt them in route to those trees. This photo was taken at the end of the trail that goes by my main stand putting him 20 yards broadside from my stand at about 6:30pm on the day the photo was taken.  I do have secondary stands locations to play different wind conditions and I do have a ground blind that I can set up if I need to make on the fly adjustments for wind conditions.  Hard part is this is a city hunt with an earn a buck rule so I've got to get a doe on the ground as fast as possible so that I can focus on a big boy the rest of the season.
    • any ideas on where or what to fish around there between oct 10 15?
