Vexilar FL-8 SE Genz Pack
The Vexilar FL-8 SE Genz Pack is a classic design that has been improved even more by ice fishing legend Dave Genz. Dave has made his "Blue Box" nearly indestructible to last for years of hard use. He then re-sized and balanced the battery storage compartment and built a universal transducer holder system. The Blue Box can also accept the full line of Vexilar accessories like the T-130 or D-130 battery status indicators, flexible night light or even a Dual Beam Ice-ducer transducer.

The FL-8 SE is the world's most-popular three color flasher. The hallmark of the FL-8 SE 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.
Effective for both summer and winter use, the FL-8 SE has a built-in Interference Rejection switch as well a six depth range settings that let you fish down to 120 feet. Exclusive interference rejection technology lets you fish side by side with almost any flasher, LCR, LCD or graph with interference-free operation. The eight step adjustable switch lets you knock out interference between you and another depth finder. FL-8 SE anglers can even fish two depth finders in the same ice shelter or boat. It allows you to have two FL-8s close together on a boat or in a fish house without the annoying interference.

Vexilar FL-8 SE Genz Pack review
by Jeff -
My Son received this as a Christmas gift. Used it once so far, very easy to use and easy to learn how to read. My Son used it ice fishing in a hole 3 feet from the hole I was fishing in without a flasher. We were using the same bait, he caught three times more fish than I did. He could tell where his bait was relative to the fish, I couldn't. We will be purchasing another Vexilar soon.
catch more fish

The FL8 has been a great tool for Lake Trout fishing! The unit has been reliable and is sensitive enough to provide real time feedback of lure location and fish reaction while jigging. I would recommend this product to all serious trout and pan fisherman.

I do alot of ice fishing and love this little flasher, its not very fancy, but it works great. Its simple to use, and can pick up jigs that are too small for any other flasher that I've owned. And priced well. I like it alot more than other flashers that I have bought for alot more money.

Love this flasher
Great flasher for the price. Just cannot ice fish without this ever again. So simple to use and easy to read. The DVD that comes with the unit is informative and contains all the operating information needed.
