Trade Vexilar fl-8slt for really good/light sleeping bag

9 posts in this topic

I've got a Vexilar fl-8slt three color flasher for trade for a Western Mountaineering Badger or a Marmot Helium Long sleeping bag. The flasher is maybe seven years old or so and is in perfect shape. It has a new batter as of about two months ago. I'd consider other bags, but I'll only consider down bags that are rated to approximately 20 degrees, weigh about two pounds, and pack up about the size of a loaf of bread.

If interested, e-mail me at scootsfishing at yahoo

nitrokfa, yep I still have it. Interested?

hamre, nope- sorry, not interested in a Coleman. I'm looking for a Marmot, Western Mountaineering, or North Face bag.

nit, can you refer me to where I can look at the specs of that bag? I did a search and can't find anything about it. I'm looking for a bag that's rated for 10-20 degrees and weighs about 2 lbs. I'd prefer a down bag, but would consider synthetic if it packs small enough and is light enough.

Thanks for the offer, but I want to stick with one of the bags I know about and can get specs on. In particular, I'm really picky about the weight of the bag- it has to be about 2 lbs. Given the description of your bag, I'd doubt that's the case for it.

Thanks for your interest, but I'm going to pass on this bag.

    • LH...I repaired Shimano's for years, and this was a huge issue for the Stradics and the Sahara's, First, look at the bail and make sure that they are not out of alignment. I bet your problem is caused by one part (and it's the probable cause of both problems)..... To keep the bail from rotating on the cast (and snapping shut on you in mid-cast) there's a small friction ring inside the rotor. It looks like a heavy rubber band only it's made of heavy vinyl plastic. It's  actually called a "friction ring". When it goes bad it loosens up just enough to bind up your reel completely and the bail won't snap shut. Also check the round bail return spring with the smal 90* bend in it, that can pop out of the tiny hole (the "bent" end) and cause the bail to do literally nothing. If your bail actuator pin (your :latch") is bent/worn, that will do it, but unikey that it's worn down that much. Loosen up the bail center screws, and see if when they are loose the bail will return. If so, they may be bent/out of alignment. Takes some careful maneuvering to get them back to proper set. I love Shimao stuff, but they never did own up to this problem, as far as I know. Check those things first and let's go from there.

       
    • Look at the diagram, order the parts.   If it pops open or won't close I am still thinking the spring... Take pictures with phone or digital camera as you take it apart.  Helps to get it back together. 
    • Wrong guy there.  I don't fish in MN anymore, don't have a boat either. 
    • Clinton.     After Mn coughed up 66 million for 150 jobs in Cook, nobody from MN ought to be criticizing Indiana.  Looks like they got a heck of a deal.
    • who hasn't done something dumb like that.  I know I have!   good luck making it up to you Mother!!
    • *sigh* Kiss of death my friend............. kiss of death.   LOL
    • make / manufacturer: Eskimo
      model name / number: Mako Upgraded to an electric auger and selling my old one. Runs great and has been well taken care of. Starts on 2-3 pulls every time. I have the extension for it as well as a new set of blades that I bought but haven't needed to change yet. I also have a cabelas auger bag that it fits in.
    • the thing that trips the latch is worn or broken.    i think   will take apart and look if i set hook hard the bail rackets pops up and lets line out won't close some of time...have to do manually
