Tough call. I usually go with the pro packs but the transducer holder is really nice on the ultra pack. Here are the spec differences.


so-you-want-to-buy-a-vexilar-4_squarethuThe Pro Pack II is a very functional case that comes with a digital battery status indicator to keep an eye on your battery status and a 9 amp hour 12 volt battery. It too has the one amp charger and this round case fits into a five gallon bucket. It has other things like a cable management system and even a Vexilar tackle box.

The Ultra Pack is available from the factory with a FL-12, FL-18, FL-20 and FL-22HDunit. It has a unique enclosed battery compartment with a master on/off control switch design. It has remote charging ports, a great cable storage system and also comes with a tackle box. The over-all case offers a taller, easier to reach feature plus it fit into a five gallon bucket.

The ultra pack is nice for the option of running you LED fish house light off of. I like the stronger design & handle better.

The cover can be kind of a hassle though when trying to wind up the transducer, mine is long gone.

I don't like the handle on the Ultra Pack.  It is too large and difficult to maintain a good grip with a heavy glove.  The Pro Pack handle is perfect.  I personally use the blue box for my 28.  Simple design and compact.

I would not buy the flx28 unit until vexilar fix the freezing up issue. according to tech, 2015 models flx28 are locking up at certain depths. They should post on there page or pull there stock out so we as customer don't have to deal with it. I just bought mine last week and first time I use it, it froze up on me. Call their tech and all they said was they don't know whats the problem but they are working on it. Ask the if they been getting lots of call about same issue and they said yes. so i would wait until they fix the issue to get it

    • If anyone here is in the market for an electric smoker, give me an IM. I will soon be listing my MES 40 that has only been used 1 time. It is barely even seasoned!
    • Not yet, but I have been thinking of trying one....
    • I figure any fish that doesn't get into my boat was a wall-hanger for sure. 😀
    • I've never bought a car/truck over $15K, so yeah.  It would take a powerball jackpot before I was in the market for a dealer showroom boat.
    • Dry brine with Mortons Tenderquick, amount directions per pound are on the package in a ziplock in the fridge. Add seasonings like onion, garlic, black pepper, maple sugar or brown, allspice, cinnamon, nutmeg. What ever you prefer. Take meat out of brine and let sit in Fridge overnight. Smoke around the 130 degree mark for 12 hours (for my liking) or as smokey as you like. Cut into 1/8" slices and cook in the oven 425 degrees for 20 to 30 min to your desired crispness. 
    • I just bought two panels that I am going to trim slightly to replace one of the 3 grates on my Big Horn grill... I actually have a buddy that received them this weekend for fathers day and say they work just as advertised on his pellet grill.... I will give an update next week when they arrive.
    • never heard of it....  
    • Since we are talking about searing stations, etc....   Has anyone ever used the Grill Grate product on their pellet grills?   https://www.grillgrate.com/shop-grillgrates/standard-grillgrates/pellet-grills/
    • You've got the right idea. There are a ton of bacon recipes here on HSO if you search for bacon - I've pasted one here to what seemed like one of the more popular brines. I made bacon once, and it turned out OK, but it's a long process.  Good luck and let us know how it turn out.
