    Default Picking out a flasher unit

    Hi guys. I do not have a flasher unit (yet) but I've decided that is going to end soon. I don't want to beat a dead horse, but can you get a decent flasher for $250 or less? What would you recommend?

    Difficult at that price point unless there is a sale.
    Most start in the $299 range at the low end.
    Marcum VX-1, Hummingbird ICE-35 or Vexilar FL-8
    Cabelas has the ICE-35 on sale at $279 right now plus you can get an additional $20 off for the next 4 days on orders $150 or more to bring it down to $259.

    For the money I like the vexilar FL-8. It is a very good unit. Shoot me a PM and you can try before you buy. I have one you could tryout for a weekend if you like. I am really thinking about getting one of the new showdown LCD units. I like my camera but you cant watch the entire water column with. I really have increased my catch rate for suspended fish with the flasher.

    I'm thinking that ice 35 sounds pretty awesome. Thanks for your help guys.

    Check out the lowrance ice x67 very nice, 249$ thru Cabelas. Other places have it for the same price.
    Iceshanty.com has lots of info on electronics.Also check out youtube on the x67.

    Many Manufacturers also sell reconditioned units with full factory warranties for a reduced price. Might be worth looking into.
    These are units that were demo models or factory returns that have been repaired and inspected and have full factory warranties on them. I believe with Vexilar it is a 2 year warranty.

    I am sure the other manufacturers have similiar deals.
