Vexilar FLX-28 Ultra Pack Reviews:
I went out ice fishing with a buddy of mine that owns this same flasher. He out-fished so when i got home i ordered the same one to keep. Went out fishing to the Flaming Gorge the next weekend and we both caught our limits. Watching the flasher show the fish come up to your jig is crazy fun!
I watched my brother-in-law and 2 nephews use this same model for 2 years at Lake of the Woods catch walleye before I bought it. I had never used a flasher before but found that it is easy to use/learn. If your serious about ice fishing, you won’t be disappointed in this model.
So far so good. I didn’t purchase this unit until right at the end of the season, but it worked as advertised and I see it turning into a great tool for future seasons.
Best vexilar ever FLX 28
This is a very good product. It will display very small lures in 50 ft of water. It is an excellent upgrade of the vexilar family of flashers. I tried it in open water and i am well satisfied it will work even better while ice fishing.
Another hit for Vexilar
The FLX28 has been all I could have hoped for! Much quieter than my previous Vexilar units, and great detail in the display. More colors give a lot more information, but still easy to read. Very user friendly and easy to operate.
Vexilar FLX 28
I have Two FL 18s and up graded to the FLX 28 for the added features.
I have used an FL-8 for about 20 years. That was a very good unit, this is a much better unit. I like the additional colors available. The mode I have used most adds white (strangest return) to the standard green, yellow and red pallet. The auto zoom works very well and is real nice in 20+ feet of water. The auto range feature is very nice when hole hopping/searching for fish.
The FLX-28 is the last flasher you will ever need. You will never have interference issues again. Went fishing with 3 buddies we all had flashers. I was the only one with the FLX-28 and also the only one with no interference. This product is worth every penny.
Vexilar's Best Flasher EVER
This is by far the best product Vexilar has ever produced. The ability to see the screen is incredibile. I had use the FL-18 for the past 5 years and was very pleased with that, but the FLX-28 is hands down the best flasher out there!
Great unit could use another year to work out bugs
I purchased this unit 1/2 way through the season. I will say that it is leaps and bounds ahead of my 10 yr old FL-8 and the screen colors and clarity are top notch. That being said the reason i gave it 3 stars is that the screen freezes up A LOT. It does not seem to matter what setting you are on it will randomly lock up and need to be shut off and started over to work again. For the price i paid for this unit i expect it to work with out annoyances such as this, mine will be going back and i will wait until this issues is fixed to purchase again.
I don’t know how I ever fished without a Vex and this one is really great it even has a demo mode to learn how to read it lots of options on this unit get one
VEXILAR FLX 28 ULTRAPACK
I purchased this unit mid February, so I didn’t get to use it as much as I would have liked. The few times I did use it, I was quite impressed. Easy to use, and the Sonar screen is very sharp and bright. The Pro View ice transducer is very powerful, even, a little too powerful in water less that 6ft. But, if you switch to Low Power and turn the gain all the way down, it worked fine.Hence, I guess that’s why they have those settings. The only reason I didn’t give it a 5 star, was because the screen locked up a couple of times. This was a software issue in a number of units sold around this time. When I called Vexilar, they were aware of it and very good to deal with. They told me how do a temp fix to get me through the rest of the ice fishing season. I sent the unit to them for the software fix and had it back within a 3 day turn around. The one thing I was a little disappointed in, was I had to pay the shipping charge to get it to them. Not a deal breaker, but another reason for not giving a 5 star rating.
Have used & own Vexilar & Humminbird both, have zero complaints about this product .. If you have the funds and want a top of the line flasher the FLX 28 is where it’s at. Has all the features I need !
Nice piece of equipment, only took it out once this year but very satisfied. Can’t wait for next season I’ll be on the ice a lot more that’s for sure
Very happy with the product. Thank you.
very nice machine and comes with DVDs to help you I operate it
vexilar hits a home run
Great product. ..lives up to the expectations I had after being a long time user of products from vexilar. . Would never ice fish again without my “vex”
Works Great!!!! Big upgrade from older models!
My fiance said it was amazing!
Can’t wait until the first ice of the season, awesome device
Like the device, but having issues with it cutting in and out -will have to contact seller.
Very nice I love it! But it cuts in and out! Not a lot but enough to make you wonder if it is going to stop for good.
Great addition for fun ice fishing.
This unit was fun to use, and performed great. It was ready to go right out of the box, and didn’t take long to learn how to read the graph. The auto range is great, and the multi color option is a nice feature as well.
Love the product
Love the product. But did not receive the soft pack which in the description says it included. Not to happy with the false advertisements.
Does what I need it to, have used older vexilars with great results. This one is another definite go to! Haven’t had any issues yet!
