Reasonable Price to Sell Vexilar FL-18

Recommended Posts

Just looking for some opinions on what a reasonable price to sell my Vexilar FL-18 Genz Pack might be.  They currently retail for $399 at Fleet Farm. I've only used mine for 2 winters, and  probably less than 10 times on the ice. Still have the box, charger, battery is in good shape, etc. Basically like new.

 

Tried to do some research but can't find many FL 18s on C-List, nor the For Sale section of HSO. Prices for other models are all over the place.  Was thinking $250 would be a price I could live with and would be a good deal for the buyer. But wanted some other opinions from folks who have perhaps purchased a used one or done some research on one. If I decide to sell it I want to be firm on my price - won't be looking to negotiate.

That's a good point RL_SD. Although, after Black Friday a lot of the really good deals will be over until later in the winter when they're trying to dump inventory. For what it's worth, I think I paid about $320 for mine when at the end of season - so that deal you saw at Scheel's was pretty good.

$250-$275 for a used one is abount perfect. An FL8 will sell for $200.

Thanks for all the input guys. When I go to sell I'll price it at $250. I'm comfortable knowing it's a good unit that has been taken care of and used very little. I don't have any complaints about it, but when I saw my buddies Hummingbird Helix-5 w/GPS last winter that seemed like an ideal set-up for me, and can also be used on the boat up at the cabin.

vex can be used on a boat too.

 

Yeah I know, but it doesn't seem to be the most practical, particularly when trolling. Not sure about other models, but the FL-18 adjusts in 10-foot increments, so you would spend half your time adjusting the dials.

Well all that and the helix has like 10x the features.

 

I paid $275 for a hsolist FL18 pro pack maybe 8 years ago.  I know they have dropped in price and at the time they were the top of the line.  Still going strong though, but it's been on backup/loaner duty since I got a 'bird.

    • I never said that at all but my choice of "grill" or "smoker seems to bother you for some reason.   It's OK if you are a little bit jealous of my pellet smoker.....    
    • How does the cold smoke accessory work? I wouldn't fathom doing any this time of year or does it have a built in ice tray to keep foods cool?. If not any grill or smoker would do the trick in the cold. I'm with others,  having room to hang for long smokes works the best. It is a nice concept though.
    • The fatty was good! Got up at 6:30 am Friday morning to put it on the pellet grill.    
    • Ants are just trying to make a livin.
    • Buy an ant moat. Feeder hangs underneath it. Ants can’t cross the water. While I have never used this, I used to put my cup of grape jelly on a small plate, filled with water. Never had a problem with ants. So, in theory, the moat should work just the same.
    • I grease the pole with Mentholatum 
    • Gotta love wings!! Had to see what this reverse searing is about. Pork chops off to the side grabbing natural hardwood smoke then over the heat... tasty. 
    • Did a bunch of wings in the steam pot for 15 minutes yesterday. Let them cool and then brushed with oil and rub. Left uncovered overnight in the fridge. Tonight I grilled them indirectly over some charcoal and apple pellets in the smoker tube. Finished them off over the coals to get them crispy:
    • I'd just take a $20 loss and use the proper stuff your outboard is specified for.    It's just not worth it.   I feel like this falls into one of those "if you have to ask the answer is no" sort of things.
    • I have a half gallon of arctic cat APV oil, and was woundering if this can be used in my oil injected 2 stroke Yamaha 200HPDI? I bought a new sled this winter that requires C-TECH2 oil, so I have a half gallon of 45$ oil just sitting in my garage.
