Pro Pack

14 posts in this topic

Hey all, I was just wondering if you bought a vexilar pro pack ( just the plastic case thing) if you could put a MarCum on there since they are like identical to the size of a fl-8. Please dont start a war about what flasher is better

First of all, your a good man. Second of all, I think there was a subject about this a while back that said it would work but I would wait until some others reply.

Yes the chassis is the same width, you will need the nobs, power cap, and ducer from the Marcum unit and the rubber spacer washers. The Vexilar Soft Case will also function as designed also with the Marcum/Vexilar Pro Pack or Ultra Pack conversion.

A Lowrance and Eagle 500 and 300 series chassis will also fit the Vex Pro Pack and Ultra Pack. The Blue Box works very well for these, especially if used with a eternal 2000/3000/4000 GPS module.

The question I have is why would you want to? I ask as the Marcum comes with the soft case when you purchase it.

Some people like to put their flasher in a 5 gal. pail for travel. Unfortunately that square marcum doesn't fit in the round hole grin. Th Marcum soft case very nice though.

FYI - If you really like having your flasher in a pail, the Marcums fit in the 30lb cat litter pails. They are rectangular in shape.

I tried this but my cats kept burying the Marcum in the litter until I bought a Vexilar.

Sorry, couldn't resist... Carry on.

Owning both I like the Marcum case much better, when I use my vexilar I just end up taking it out of the blue bag and throwing that out on the ice or back in my car. The Marcum is a little more compact and is great for hole hopping or portabling.

Thats kind of why I have held off buying the vexilar case, I think the only reason I would like it is for transportation so it stays nice and scratch free.

    • I would wager the FBI arresting members of Trump's team, likely starting with Michael Flynn. Flynn made 5 phone calls to a Russian Ambassador on the day Obama imposed sanctions. Trump's team defended the 5 calls by stating Flynn was just wishing him Merry Christmas, which is odd because it was December 29th.
    • Nick, so what are the top schemes the left plans to conjure up for impeachment?
    • Go Pats. They need one for the thumb.
    • And I am sure it will be a waste of server space You do understand that you just defined the meaning of the word conjecture don't you?     But there is conjecture so you have that  The only thing odd is that you are falling for the same type of fake news the Birthers fell for during the Obama years. Don't you understand you are quickly becoming the JV of libertopia?    Well, If you feel compelled then go ahead and forward your research to the proper authorities so they have a better chance at putting together the evidence to prosecute him because apparently without your insight they are not able to connect the proverbial dots. 
    • The dnc had russian propaganda that the russians hacked and released? Guess they provided the transparency the left is always so concerned about.
    • It's just a compilation of sources done on a public google drive. Pasting makes it searchable on this site.   https://drive.google.com/file/d/0BzLcl2gcA6O_SWN3WWM4WTlMZ2M/view
    • This warm front might help out
    • Kind of off topic but I recently got a fl12. Having problems seeing the jig even with the gain all the way up. Works great until about 20fow and the jig turns into a in and out flicker. Switched transducers and still the same. Any advice??
    • Is there some reason that you don't post the link of where this is from?   Clearly this is pasted from somewhere, so why not post the link?
