Any way to tell how old a Vexilar is?

3 posts in this topic

Does anyone know how to age a Vexilar. Is there a way to tell how old it is by the serial number or anything.

Thanks for any replys,

Pete

Vexilars customer service is pretty darn good. If you have the serial # give them a call and I'm sure they can give you the info you want about the unit.

I don't know why I didn't think of that! I just called them... they were very friendly. The service tech stated the following if anyone else was wondering the same.

FL-8 are from 1989 to 1994

FL-8 SLT with the 4 range power switch are from 1995 to 1997

FL-8 SLT with the 6 range power switch are from 1998 to 2003

FL-8 SE are from 2004 to present

Thanks,

Pete

      I'll be out this wknd and got 3 spots to try out so still debating which one will be the ticket. The past couple weeks I've been getting some while crappie fishing.  Going to be shore fishing so FYI the water level is pretty high right now with all the rain from few weeks ago. A wader would be handy if you have one.  Good luck n be safe out there.

      Found a half dozen good size crappies on Clear Lake in Waseca Sunday.  Just off the bottom in 8 feet of water, minnows under bobbers.  Water temp was 58 on the east side of the lake, which was a full degree above the rest of the lake.

      yepper, almost 30 between the 2 of us in the slack water next to fast water. kinda hard to fish in that fast water when it's moving so fast...

      We were using both, but the number of fish caught was definitely based on..... location, location, location - slack water during high flows is where it's at buddy.
