Changed ice fishing forever

Rated 5 out of 5

Makes ice fishing incredibly fun. Not sure how we ever fished without it. I’ve had mine for 5 years without a single issue. Liked it so much my uncle went out and bought one. Now we both daydream all summer long about coaxing that red dot up from the bottom with suttle jigs.

Five Stars

Very simple to use. I wouldn’t go ice fishing without it. Marks fish every time.

Great Service.......Great Product!

Rated 5 out of 5

Received it a week ahead of time and I’ve used it a couple times since with no issues. Very simple to use and accurate. Great value for the price. Only regret is not ordering a case for it but will be doing so.

Very pleased with it

Absolutely worth every penny!

Got the magnifying lens, which yes, you should too. Amazing for ice fishing, and super easy to read. Make sure you also get the carrying bag so she doesn’t get soaked!

Surprisingly not happy!

Rated 3 out of 5

Battery is dead never used the thing!!!! Won’t charge with a vexilar charger! Had to go to and buy another battery! Genz pack not worth it either not engineered correctly I’ve had vex -8 for 15 yrs plus loved it not sure I’m going to love this vex too bad because it’s not cheap!

Worth the money to purchase

Rated 5 out of 5

I bought this for my husband for Christmas. All I can say is that he really likes and says that it works great. Better than his older model that he has. So I say worth the money.

FL-18 is great, makes ice fishing so much more fun.

Rated 5 out of 5

The FL-18 is great. It’s a happy medium between the Fl-8, which works nicely, albeit without any bells and whistles, and higher end models like the FLX-28, which is nice if you have money to burn, but has diminishing returns on investment. The zoom is a fantastic feature. I cannot imagine ice fishing without a vexilar.

Just as valuable as your ice auger

Rated 5 out of 5

This was worth every penny. I upgraded it through the season and now I don’t go on the ice without it. Controls are easy to understand and use. Unit is very user friendly and the tight so at cone is great because it covers the area right under you not off to the side.

Bought this product last year for fishing walleyes, pike, bluegills, and some crappies. Great battery life and love the auto zoom feature. This allows you to catch panfish relatively easy when you can see them 2 foot off the bottom. Only problem I’ve had so far was with interference. Even though this has a interference rejection system, it takes awhile to find one where you can read clearly. Overall, love this product!!!

Great flasher, so-so pack

Rated 4 out of 5

First off, love the FL-18. I just bought mine so I haven’t used it that much lately, but have used a buddy’s FL-18 quite a bit in the past. The auto zoom feature is ideal for ice fishing and worth the upgrade from the 8 or 12 model. Easily marks bottom, structures, and of course fish on the bottom 6 feet while still monitoring your whole water column. Makes jigging more fun/interactive in that you can watch fish respond to your bait and play them more. The digital float charger that comes with the unit is great too, just plug it in and forget about it. No worries about over charging or frying your battery. I look forward to using this for years to come and getting after the big slab crappies out on the hard water.
The 4/5 stars comes because of the Genz pack. Thought I’d try to go cheaper on the purchase, but not satisfied with this pack. Built like a sled, so guess what, if you set it down on any sloped crust ice it is going to slide away from you. It is nice that it can sit up on a bucket so it is closer to you, but I think in the end I’ll probably upgrade to a Pro Pack at some point. I did get on of the digital battery meters too, a handy accessory that will transfer to the Pro Pack.
Hard to go wrong with the FL-18. Ease of use and the auto zoom make it a fish killer.

Worth every penny

Rated 5 out of 5

I purchased this for walleye fishing the Saginaw Bay and I am not disappointed. The bottom zoom is critical for seeing the walleye come off the bottom. It has definitely improved catch rate. I honestly can’t think of one negative thing about it.

My second Fl18

Rated 5 out of 5

Now I can explore new area with one unit while my wife sits in the portable with the other unit. This is an accurate durable unit. It does everything but makes the fish bite. You have to figure that one out. Without this unit you’re lucky to catch 1/5 the fish.

Nice unit for the price!

Rated 5 out of 5

I have used it a couple times. So far I really like it. I added the magnifier and digital depth/battery gauge. I’m really glad I got the fl18 for the bottom zoom. I wasn’t sure I needed it and am now glad I got it. I would purchase this sonar again.

Satisfied with product and service. Would recommend

Rated 5 out of 5

Good unit, wish the definition was better. Overall I am happy with the unit.
Shipping was very fast. Ordered and received the next day using free shipping.

Awesome flasher Vexilar

Best flasher for a money could buy. Works great, split screen is worth it, also just added the battery and depth attachment worth every penny. Thanks Vexilar
