Great for shallow water!
Pros: Easy to store, Easy to install and uninstall
Comments: Works very well for suppressing the power in my Vexilar 8SE, almost a necessity when ice fishing in less than 10FOW with weeds.

 no point to it
Comments: used it in shallow weedy water was not effective it reduces power but then you just have to turn up your gain to see jig and you are right back where you started from.Screen is again filled with unwanted clutter

 Great product....most of the time.
Comments: This product worked great in shallow areas as indicated. I fished a larger area that went from 5 fow to 25 fow. I had to keep taking the s-cable off or turn up the gain really high everytime I went to the deep holes. I wish Vexilar made a switch that you could bypass the s-cable. Otherwise great service from FishUSA.com

 Great for shallow water
Pros: drops the gain to see shallow pannies
Comments: Brought an older FL-8 STL , lots of clearwater lakes that i ice fish, some shallower. having the S- cable will help in locating the pannies that roam the shallow water in the weedbeds. I used it for the first time just after new year, weedbeds around 3' to 5' . it worked great!

Helps in shallow water
Best Uses: Ice Fishing
Comments: Easy to put on and take off when going from shallow water (under 10 ft) to deeper water. Makes small ice jigs show up well. Need to turn up the gain a little, but it made a big difference.

 Work s Good
Comments: Works good in shallow water as advertised, but it seems to need more gain which lessens battery life.

Pros: Good For Variety Of Fish, Easy To Handle, Strong, Easy To Store
Best Uses: Jigging, Ice Fishing, Less then15 feet
Comments: I have had a vexilar FL-8 for ice-fishing for many years and always had to much clutter to read depth or see fish in water 15' or less. Since I put on the S-cable I can now see in those depths.And it has improved my fishing.
