Vex customer service

Recommended Posts

Thank you!

What a great experience. Went down there thinking possibly bad tri beam, bought it with last years tax return and was worrying about warranty. I told the rep I thought I had a bad ducer, he said I was prob right, and turned on my flasher for about 3 sec, said yep ill grab you a new one and its prob been bad for a while, and gave me a towel for the hassle

I bought a tri beam transduer at the end of the ice season last year. I didn't get much chance to use it and thought it didn't work well. last weekend when I was convinced mine was bad, I e mailed Vexilar customer service; they told me to send it back and on Friday when I got home I had a new one sent from them.

Thats customer satisfaction and service at its absolute best. 50 million smilly faces to Vexilar.

A few years ago I sent my vex in during the off season because it wasn't working correctly. About three weeks later I get a call from them. Guy asks me if I remember what kind of box I sent it in. I told him yes it was a box from a case of Kleenex.

He proceeds to tell me that his shipping guy got it in and thought it was Kleenex and put it in the store room. One of the office gals was going to get supplies and found it.

I had no problem with it as there wasn't even ice yet and asked what I owed for the repairs. They said no charge because of their error. I honestly argued with him to pay for the repairs or at least shipping and they would not budge.

That made me a customer for life.

In November I went down to Vexilar with a bad Tri-Beam and left with a reconditioned FL-22 head and 2 Pro View trancducers for #300.00 +tax

Great guys to work with.The reconditioned units are better than new because they check eveything out to make sure they are working right.

why so many problems with the Tri Beams ever since they came out. I had to go through the same thing with my FL 22 and tri Beam , Three Tri Beams later AND TWO REPLACEMENT FL 22's,, I had them send me a 12 degree and I never been happier with my FL22 Great cusomer service but I think they know they have a major problem with the tri beams but vex keeps selling them and destroying their reputation with them. Every body that knows how to use the flasher seems to have problems with those tri beams.

When I was down there the service guy said there was a bad batch in the beginning and they had out sourced their QA on them so some passed inspection that shouldn't have. They have now brought that portion in house

I also had a problem with the Tri Beam ducer. Bought the FL22 head at the vex store and the ducer at GM the first year early production.

Called the vex store and they said to bring the ducer in. He took a look at it and brought me out another one and gave me a vex hat for my trouble.

It's nice to be able to go in person to the place the repairs most every vex in the world.

    • Timberdoodle's open on the 1st!! right around the corner. Get out the SBS's
    • So the deer hunters of Minnesota are going to let a few folks spread CWD into the wild deer herd for the sake of money and do nothing?   Why aren't the hunters of Minnesota making themselves heard?  Where are all the organizations that purport to represent deer hunters?    The hunters outnumber deer farmers by many times over.  At least 100 times as many hunters as deer farms. 
    • Saw this and thought about the one you did.  I may have to try that soon.  🙂    
    • Oh, you haven’t seen me upset.  After I miss 5 straight - then I get upset! 😁
    • dog is good too, did not know it then, but when I was over seas and had some and found out later.. it was the last tome ...  would not say try it cause they are my friends....
    • I'm sure it's tasty, but I have never tried dog either. Calm down people, I am just kidding around.   We used to keep landscaping supplies out on a farm in Rosemount back in the day, and blast away at them when they emerged from the barn. Sticking with the Clint theme.............. Farm cats gotta eat, same as worms.   Being a member of the dove family, I am sure the meat is simular.  
    • Remember, he liked the neighbors food after he tried it. 😋
    • I fished most of the lake in scout mode today.  Found walleyes early on midlake humps and bars in 18-24 fow.  Got a couple to go on jigging raps but then they shut off.  Spent the rest of the day trying to pin down a panfish pattern.  Found good numbers of sunfish in shallow cabbage beds(6-9 fow).  None were huge but good numbers of 8-8 1/2" gills.  A few crappies are mixed in with them and some are suspending off the break.  There are also good numbers of sunfish in or just outside the reeds.   Most of the sunfish ran smaller though although there were some keepers there too.  Pike and bass I did not target but saw others do so successfully.   Plenty of bass in the reeds and spinnerbaits seemed to be what most were using.   Troll over the weeds and you will be rewarded with pike.
    • I got primary on the Crow-Hassen with a rank of #21. New experience for me as well, with MBRB, been a member for a few years just could never get a hunt.   DanBo - That was one I had on my list as I have a buddy that lives just a few blocks up from there.
    • try them before you knock them....
