When it comes to ice fishing, Vexilar is the world leader in three-color flasher technology.

The Vexilar FL-12 flat screen flasher is the core of this Ice Pro. The hallmark of the FL-12 is its bright, three color display. It presents bottom contours and types, vegetation, structure, fish, and bait fish in a multiple color display. The colors indicate the signal strength of the return echoes. Strong echoes are displayed as red marks, weak echoes are shown as green, and medium strength echoes are orange. The multiple color display gives you a great advantage over any single color depth sounder. The ability to instantly spot and identify bottom and fish targets have proven to be simply revolutionary to the world of modern day ice fishing. The new flat screen design eliminates snow build up and can be viewed at a wider angler than other flasher units.

Effective for both summer and winter use, the FL-12 has a built-in Interference Rejection switch as well as five depth range settings that let you fish down to 200 feet. Exclusive interference rejection technology lets you fish side by side with almost any flasher, LCR, LCD or graph with interference-free operation. The 10 step adjustable switch lets you knock out interference between you and another depth finder. FL-12 anglers can even fish two depth finders in the same ice shelter or boat. It allows you to have two FL-12s close together on a boat or in a fish house without the annoying interference.

One of the features on the Fl-12 Ice Pro is an enlarged, super strong handle design. The handle supports the gimble bracket making it easier to rotate upwards for vertical viewing.

Standard features of the Vexilar FL-12 Ice Pro include:

  • Rod Holder - adjustable to two possible mounting locations
  • Tackle Box - Clear for easy viewing
  • Universal transducer holder
  • Designed to hold all of Vexilar's after-market accessories

To maximize the performance of the Vexilar FL-12, the Ice Pro comes fully assembled and factory tested to give anglers a complete package system that has everything you need to start using electronics for ice fishing. Using only quality components, the Ice Pro starts with a tough carrying case that not only holds your sonar unit and battery, but also fits into a five gallon bucket, which is perfect for carrying onto the ice. Mounted in the case is a powerful 12 volt, 9 amp sealed lead acid battery, including a Vexilar V-410, three stage automatic 1 amp digital battery charger.

Comments: For years I've toted around the FL-8 in the Genz blue box. It became difficult to see the colors on the screen, especially in the sun. The "Blue Box" didn't fit into a five gallon pail. The FL-12 gave me great graphics, portability, and the all the functionality of the FL-8 with a few more bells and whistles. For the most part, it's a great product, but I don't like the fact that the battery is so inaccessible. That was not the case with the old FL-8 where a new battery could be utilized during a long day of ice fishing. If the charge starts to drain on the FL-12, it takes a lot of work to put in a new battery. Extremely cold weather can make the 100% drop to 75% and then 50% in a relatively short period of time. A lot of days you need a solid 8-10 hours of battery life to be mobile. I'm worried that the battery "memory" is going to leave me high and dry if I continue to charge each night instead of when the battery is completely discharged, like I did with the old FL-8. The other problem is what to do with all of that dangling transducer cord. It's a pain to have to weave it through the plastic holders on the side of the handle. Still, a nice change from squinting at the old FL-8.
