Vexilar FLX-28 Pro Pack II Reviews:
if anyone is looking to upgrade their sonar, this is what you want. Being able to change the brightness of the screen is very nice addition. You can also change the colors on the screen. You won’t be disappointed.
Another great product from vexilar
works very well, auto depth feature is nice, Dimmable screen is a big plus. marking the fish, it works so good and I’ve been running with the gain turned all the way down.
couldn't be happier
Enough said really. Outperforms my friends units from other makers hand down.
Have used the 28 over a year. This is a great flasher, easy to read and love the dimmable feature for night time. Have fished deep and shallow and no doubt it is very easy to read and by far the best feature packed flasher I have used compared to the Marcum’s and Hummingbirds I have tried.
The new vexilar is great, the definition is so much better than my fl 18. It will pick up the smallest jig and the gain doesn’t even have to be turned up.
Love using this unit. It is so sensitize and great for fishing at any depth. Being able to adjust the cone angle with the gain is really nice option when searching for fish and hole hopping. Auto range takes a few seconds to find bottom but well worth it. So sensitive I use low power most of the time.
A big upgrade from my FL-20
If you’re a die-hard fisherman, then it’s worth the cash to upgrade. I started with an FL-18, upgraded to a FL-20 and this blows them both out of the water.
Vexilar FLX 28
This thing works great. Used it immediately in 75+ feet of water. It did have to be sent in for a software upgrade. Vexilar told us how to fix if it froze on the screen. When we returned home we had great send and return service. All in all a great product.
My husband ordered this and LOVES IT. I don’t understand it, how it works but have enjoyed the fish he has caught.
My first Vexilar
This isn’t my first flasher but it is my first Vexilar.
I had a Humminbird Ice 55 before this. I think this is a better unit.
I don’t feel this is a 5 out of 5 maybe a 4.5 out of 5, I am still on the fence with the ProView transducer. In shallow water I need to be in low power mode when my friends fl20 doesn’t need to be. And my only other concern is we get so much interference with each other.
Other than that I love how it hardly makes noise like the older gens. The colors look great. The target ID is very nice to have. I think I caught more fish in 2 days with this vs 6 times i Had the ice 55 out.
Overall Nice unit. I would still pick this over the lx7 again. I would like to try the tri beam transducer but Is it worth it for 110$ ?
My husband loves it!!
I love it!!!! Works like a champ….. Pluse I got it two days early…..
In my second season with this flasher and love it. The preview transducer takes time to get use to and understand but is great. The transducer is meant for around 15′ and deeper but can fish shallow in low power mode.
Love this! It has been a great addition to our ice fishing trips. It comes with DVDs and walks through the different setting on the vexilar. It is pretty neat to watch the fish too!
Best one I've seen
Bought one of these locally while on a trip this last weekend after being the only one without a flasher for 4 years. The others have ICE 35 and 55 and FL18 and I can completely tune out any interference by going to low power and some gain adjustments. I had zero issues seeing only what I wanted to in the water at 40feet and no interference with the FL18. The Humminbirds always interfere with each other and the Vexilars work seamlessly with each other. In fact, we were sharing my FLX28 between 3 of us by drilling 3 holes and placing this in the middle and compete to who gets the fish. My only issue was I forgot to leave the master power switch on while charging so I had voltage alerts on the screen every few hours. Even with that issue, out of the box I ran 16 hours on a factory charged battery for two days and ended up at 12.1 volts. This thing is awesome. I had a lot of people wishing they had the FLX28. Definitely the Cadillac for ice fishing.
Awesome product and easy to use
This is a very nice locator and so easy to use.
Worked great. Still need to buy matching color camera as set. Even thou the FLX-28 is a go on its own. Worth the $$$’s.
Very impressed with performance
I love it. Incredible separation
I love it. Incredible separation, even at 70′. Easily see a 1/2 oz Kastmaster in 70′ of water. Wish manual range would go to 100′. Manual range maximum is only 50′. Use it all the time. The zoom is a nice bonus.
I wish I would have bought the 22 instead
I felt this one was harder to read than the older versions. I wish I would have saved some money and went with the 22.
It's so much fun
I will never ice fish again without this flasher. It’s so much fun targeting certain species and then being able to see the lines stack up and work the jig until you see it snack it and it’s such a blast and this has the capabilities to do all types of depths and is very easy to use.
Exactly what I asked for.
Reliable! user friendly!
This unit is great. Very user friendly, easy to tune in the gain and the split view is a must have feature. I’ve never drained the battery dead even with fishing 24+ hrs straight.
I bought my FLX 28 in 2014 , as a first time user was interesting to learn how to use . To see where is the fish and to see if there is any fish. It’s a truly great unit to own and know that Vexilar flashers was made strictly in Japan for 29 years straight. And continue making it . Take care of your Vexilar and it will last you a lifetime.
Love the read out on screen
Ice fishing. I bought the 28 to replace my 18! Love it so far. Used it twice and love it!
Great product. I’m colorblind and can see the difference in FL28 . Worth it !!
Great quality, arrived quickly.
Arrived on time. I little pricey but worth it.
Very good flasher and a lot quieter than the 18
I haven’t used yet but I’m going to be catching more fish than before!
Beat price shiped fast
Easy to use
