Full Product Details

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 tranducer 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.

  • 7 amp hour 12 volt battery and charger
  • Transducer support eye-bolt
  • Specially designed base fits on top of five gallon bucket
  • Pre-drilled holes for optional accessories
  • Built-in transducer holder fits all sizes of Ice-Ducers
  • Easy access semi-closed battery compartment
  • Large cable storage compartment
  • Free intructional DVD

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.

Pros: Durable, Easy To Use
Cons: a little noisy
Best Uses: deeper water
Comments: This FL8 Genz pack is really all anyone needs for ice fishing. As you can see, there are tons of options on the market, but for the price and the functionality of this unit, you should not pass this up. It's like your favorite pair of old boots; not the flashiest or newest tech, but they don't let you down. It does hum a bit louder than other brands, and is not the best in water depths less than 10 feet, but really shines in anything deeper. I can see a 1/200 ounce jig in 30 feet of water, and that is key for flashers.

Vexilar FL-8 SE Genz Pack review 
Pros: Easy to Use
Best Uses: Ice Fishing
Comments: 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.
