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.

I will try to find the marcum case but if I cant then I will just get the vexilar case.

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.

    • Seen on the channel 5 news the other night, plans to remove a dam in River Falls. They didn't specify which dam, or if it would be both dams. The movement is gaining popularity, especially with residents. And more input meetings will be planned. However, if the project is ok'd, it doesn't sound like it will be in the near future. I'm all for the dam removal! Both of them!

    • 100% A-OK is how that's working out, but I'm not surprised by the continued confusion. Even beside Texas vs Johnson, the idea of stripping citizenship from people hasn't stood up in court.

    • there is a seat belt law, why not have a ice picks law? if you are caught out ice fishing before the 1st of the year without picks, you get a "stupid" ticket.
