Vexilar Changes The Future Of Ice Fishing

Vexilar Changes The Future Of Ice Fishing

If you haven't heard of Vexilar then you must be living in a cave.  The Vexilar has been a huge part of fishing for many years and their advancements in the world of ice fishing are next to none.

This year they have gone above and beyond anything a fisherman could expect.  They have introduced some new products that any fisherman will be drooling over to get their hands on.

From the new "sonarphone" which puts your sonar in the palm of your hands with the use of your existing smart phone, to the "Fishphone" which turns your smartphone into an underwater camera Vexilar has done it all.

However, there is one product that will soon find its way into my sled for the new season and that is the FL28 flasher.  I had a chance back in March to preview this new unit and it is certainly one that will not disappoint the angler.  It has an easy-to-read screen with too many features to list at once.

The hottest thing to hit the ice!

Here is what Vexilar has to say about this new unit:

Vexilar Moves the Bar Higher with the Launch of FLX-28 Sonar Technology

Minneapolis, MN

Vexilar, the world leader in three-color flasher sonar technology has blended classic Vexilar Flasher performance with a cutting edge brushless data transfer technology to create a new generation of sonar for anglers to use for the next thirty years... the FLX-28. This addition to the Vexilar family will be the new flagship product for Vexilar and will be featured on two of their successful ice fishing packages, the Pro Pack and the Ultra Pack.

The features found in the FLX-28 read like the wish list of avid ice anglers starting with digital depth, Auto Range, Two zoom zones, battery status, FIVE color palettes to select from for maximum visibility, five foot depth range adjustments starting at 10 feet, Maximum range of 300, Day and Night display brightness settings, Low power options for fishing in super shallow water, a unique Weed Mode for better performance while fishing in weeds. And to top it all off, the unit even has its own Demo mode so you can show non-Vexilar fans how the system works with a lifelike fish catching simulation to watch.

“What most people will not see with the FLX-28 is the advanced technology that has gone into the making of this system,” stated Corey Studer, Vexilar Pro Staff Manager. “Vexilar has been working for years to develop a unique brushless data transfer system which is the heart of what customers will be seeing in many future Vexilar sonar systems in the years to come. The new data transfer system opens flasher technology to do so much more than just show depth. For sure this will continue Vexilar’s dominance as the world’s first and best ice fishing sonar systems.

There are more features to the FLX-28 series than ever before inside a single flasher sonar system. When fans of Vexilar say we could never improve the FL-8 that we introduced over 20 years ago, they were amazed when the FL-18 hit the ice in 2002. By the time the new flat screen FL-12 and 20 came out, Vexilar had established a new gold standard in flasher performance. Surely, Vexilar could not improve on this? Welcome to the age of the FLX series! A unique brushless data transfer design system allows for the creation of a breakthrough flasher display with digital depth and Auto Ranging technology. The features found in the FLX-28 read like the wish list of avid Ice Anglers starting with digital depth, Auto Range, Two zoom zones, FIVE color palettes to select from for maximum visibility, five foot depth range adjustments starting at 10 feet, Maximum range of 300, Day and Night display brightness settings, Low power options for fishing in super shallow water, a unique Weed Mode for better performance while fishing in weeds.

The FLX-28 is totally revolutionary in the world of winter flasher sonar technology. Vexilar has come a long way from the early FL-8, but Vexilar has never changed their commitment to deliver the very best sonar systems in the world for over 50 years. Performance, quality, innovation and reliability. Welcome to the amazing FLX-28.

The Ultra Pack is the ideal name for the most feature packed ice fishing system ever offered by Vexilar. The Ultra Pack system’s innovation begins with a 12 volt, 9 amp-hour battery enclosed inside the case, so you don’t need to connect or disconnect your battery after each use. A master power switch powers up your unit and remote charging posts make it easy to re-charge. The case comes with an adjustable rod holder, cable storage cleats, battery charger and even your own Vexilar tackle box! The super tough Ultra Pack will fit into a five gallon bucket. An optional soft pack carrying case is also available. The Ultra Pack comes completely assembled, individually tested and ready to fish with. It also includes an instructional video.
