Started with a low end vexilar and want to upgrade or add another unit in the house. Is there a significant difference between the flasher manufacturers?

Thanks

Many people will tell you what I am about to say isn't true. Those people are wrong. The marcum will interfere with most vexilar units. especially those that are a few years old like my FL8. Marcum makes awesome sonar but if you want to be the spoiler of the group and render your buddies fish finders useless then make sure you bring it with. On the other hand, if you want a nice machine that does everything the marcum does plus it won't interfere to much with other sonar units get a vex. I have no opinion on humminbird though I hear they are really nice. And I hear that more and more each year.

when our one friend with a marcum comes around we make him turn it off and use my extra vexilar.

HA! My wife didn't know she got me a box of swim jigs. Those end-of-the-year sales are just too good sometimes.

I bought my first unit this year a Joe's. A Humminbird Ice 35. I like it a lot. Took I to Lake Of The Woods in Jan. Worked great. Only one in a group of 50 that had a Humminbird. Everyone else was using Vexlar's. Not saying anything bad about Vexlar. I liked the zoom option on the Humminbird so you can pick which area of the water column you want to hone in on and adjusting from a 9 degree to a 19 degree cone is nice also.

Grand-nephew now has my old fl8 and I got an Ice45. It is a bit of getting used to, but the display on an fl12, 20, or 22 would be the same. Selling point...built in battery indicator, dual beam transducer, zoom [which is movable], lighted display, digital bottom display...all for the same price as an fl8. Couldn't pass it up, now I have to see if it holds up or if I made a mistake. frown smiley
