Vexilar Pro-View Ice-Ducer Transducer
Vexilar Soft Packs
- Ultra Pack and Pro Pack II systems – Window is crack tested to -30° F.
- Genz Pack – Fits all Genz Packs and GC-100 carry case.
This is the Velar pro pac-12. You say Pro pack you're describing the case. That the FL 12 is mounted into so let's first talk about. What makes the pro pack so very special the pro pack starts with its power supply a 12 volt 9 amp hour power supply. That extra amp hour of capacity gives. You much longer run time in the field. All pro packs come standard was a D 130 battery status indicator Pro packs have nice little features like a tackle box rod holder but the unique thing about the Pro Pack is the fact. That it's round base allows. You to put it inside of a five-gallon bucket which is great for transport. Now let's talk a little bit about the FL 12. What makes it so special well. Many times you think about the FL 12. You should be thinking about the FL 8. Because the FL 12 is the flat screen version of the FL 8. What makes a flat-screen version so superior to the regular cone version well the big advantage. You have is it has much better side visibility. When you're looking through the little Sun hood. You have on the FL 8. You have to be pretty much looking straight on. This the larger viewing angle makes. It enjoyable for multiple anglers to watch your display. And that's a lot of fun as well. What makes the FL 12 so special kind of starts with the Velar 3 color system.
You know the system. Where it's green for weak signals then orange then red for the strongest signals which are the signals directly below. You well when you're fishing in deeper water say 10 20 30 foot of water that's not a problem but. You get super shallow say waters of less. Than 10 foot of water. Or you're fishing in weeds for example often times setting the unit to its lowest gain setting isn't enough. You have to get even lower in power. It has a built in low power mode well the FL 12 is like an FL 8 in. Many aspects 10 steps of interference rejection only two knobs very easy to operate ranges down to 200 feet very nice little system. It comes standard with a 12 degree ice deucer but. You can also get one of the new Velar tri beams. It works very well the FL 12 comes with the 2 year Velar warranty.
And it's a great all-around unit to use by. All means it has a lot of great performance features but a lot of people think of. It as the flat-screen version of a Fla so. You may want to think of. That way and before. You buy your FL 12 you might want to consider. Some accessories. Because the FL 12 is. One of the best summer units to ever use. Because in shallow water. Or deep water the FL 12 will deliver the results. You need for fishing well you'll want to get what's called a TK Couture transducer kit it's designed to fit in your boat so every spring you take. It out of your pro pack. It directly into your boat in the fall take. It out of your boat. It back into your pro pack. It comes with a gimbals bracket power cord. And a transducer of choice. Either get a puck train snus. You want to mount it on the bow of your boat. Or on the back of the boat. You have a fiberglass boat.
You can glas you can get a high-speed transducer. You have an aluminum hold but a teacake hit is a good accessory to make your Velar a year-round investment. And also to protect. That investment you should consider getting a soft pack the SP zero zero seven soft packs have a clear window on the front which enables. You to actually fish with the unit. Even in a blizzard it works really great so don't forget. Now there are only two buttons to control with the FL 12 very simple. And easy to operate in minutes. You can be fishing but don't be worried about. Because in each VEX law. You get you'll have an instructional DVD. That walks you through. Everything you ever wanted to know about the system. How to take care of. It for example all pro packs come with a digital. One amp charger the best charger in the world well. You can actually leave your unit charged up.
And plugged into a wall. And charging all the time. You want and only disconnect. When you're fishing this is the new state-of-the-art charger. It comes standard with your pro pack 12 so ladies. And gentlemen you want two of the best sonar system. You could ever have to get out there. And start catching fish remember. It comes water ready right out of the box the FLT visit. This is the Pro Pack 12 from Velar.

This is the FL 18 altra packs from Velar the term ultra pack describes the case. That your FL 18 is mounted into so let's first talk a little bit about the case itself the ultra pack case is rounded in shape so it's designed to fit inside of a five-gallon bucket inside the ultra pack inside here at the base is a 12-volt 9 amp hour battery. This battery is totally concealed in here in pre wired right from the factory. It has two access ports here for accessories a positive. And negative it has a digital battery status indicator so. You can keep the status of your battery at. All times it has a master power on/off switch which is really great to have. You want to make sure. When you're not using the system it's completely powered down. And not slowly draining off your battery. It comes rewired from the factory fully charged battery but. We do recommend you use the digital charger. That comes with this is a. One amp fully automatic charger so. You cannot overcharge your battery plug. It in charge the battery as often of course follow the directions but the digital charger comes with. Everything is rewired also with the ultra pack you'll find. It comes with a lot of cute things like a rod holder. And you've got a transducer holder a tackle box that's. That kind of cool stuff but. One of the things you will first notice. It gets the impression of a lot of people. You take it out of the box. And want to go fishing with. How substantial this is built crazy strong the handle. That holds your float holder is really tough very rugged.
It is truly the ultra case. That Velar offers. And the FL 18 that's mounted on. It is the classic of the Velar product lineup the FAL 18 was the first unit to have a split screen zoom capacity. That simply put it allows. You to zoom in on just the bottom 6 foot of the water column. This is the first sonar system. That was ever possible with. It was developed by techs lar. What this means is you are fishing for or walleyes. And say 60 foot of water. Iknow it's a lot really deep but in the auto zoom feature. You can get the same resolution in the auto zoom range on the bottom 6 foot as. You could you were fishing in 6 foot of water. That kind of resolution in super deep water was never before possible. Because normally the deeper. You went the worse your resolution got but with the auto zoom feature.
Now opened up a whole new way of fishing the resolution is under 1/2 an inch with the FL 18 truly amazing has a built-in low-power mode so. When you're fishing in shallow water activities the screen won't freak out on. You so that's really nice. It has 10 steps of interference rejection so. If you're fishing with other anglers around. You can dial them out so. You won't see the interference on your unit as well. Now the FL 18 altra packs comes standard with the 12 degree ice deucer transducer. This is a single crystal barium titan ate crystal it's the best crystal. That Velar makes. It works as a best all-around performance for the FL 18. Italk about performance all-around the FL 18 really can't be beat for a sonar system. You use year-round and that's. One of the reasons why we highly recommend the use of a TK kit so.
You can take it out of your ultra pack in the spring and put. It into your boat in the summer teacake. It stands for transducer kit. It consists of a gimbals bracket power cord. And a transducer of choice for your type of fishing Tek kits are a great idea. Because there's no reason why you can't use. This technology year-round. It available also to protect your investment don't forget to get yourself a soft pack carrying case it's always a good idea to protect your investment. Now a lot of people look at the three buttons.

And with your Velar purchase. You get an instructional DVD.
That walks you through step by step the three different knobs there are only three little knobs to master very easy to master. And you'll be able to do so. You come water ready but. We definitely recommend. You watch the DVD before. You go out on the ice to make sure. You pick up all of those secret tips. And stuff to make sure. You get the most out of your Fla teen well there.

MarCum Lithium Shuttle with 5-Gal. Bucket
This is the Markham lx7 lithium combo so taking closer look here battery charger goes right there. It does have readout. It the snow shield plastic piece adjust ability for the screen of course it'll tilt. You have a little bit of adjustment here in the handle up. And down portion this here is for rod holders I'm thinking about maybe modifying. That bucket putting some rod holders on the side of. You got a screen protector it's retarded. Imentioned that's because pretty much. Everything has a screen protector on. It brand-new all right so let's take a look at the Markham LX 7 it's sold in a five-gallon bucket for transporting it does have the rod holders in the back. It in the five-gallon bucket. It really doesn't leave. Any room for your poles a pretty tight fit as well. What I went in did it's got a couple of these rod holders. You could make your own out of PVC of course. These rod holders are only four dollars a piece we're going to do is we're going to drill a couple of pilot holes. And we'll be able to transport the poles.
Everything and not have to throw. It into the 5-gallon buckets so. All we're really going to need for this is a 3/16 inch drill bit. And of course a impact driver will do well. Some hardware for a flush fit. We can use this type of head. Or else just your standard pan head. It should be alright as well go ahead with a locking washer so. What we want to do we mark them out on the five-gallon bucket is. We want to make sure. That they're situated so. They handle interfere with. You transport your rods. We look here they're set up pretty nicely actually for this five-gallon bucket. They have the spacers. Everything right there so. What we're gonna do is we're going to go ahead take a pen simply mark out.
Where we're going to drill. Iwant to note the corners of the unit so. When we're taking the unit in. And out of the five gallon bucket we're not being hung up on those. Any type of screw head that's our nut. That is on the opposite side so that's why I'm going to keep them fairly close to the center before. You start drilling it is wise to take the unit out of the five-gallon bucket for the bottom two screws. Iput those in reverse with a head on the inside so. Ididn't have anything catching very little interference with the setup taking the unit in. And out of the bucket. And also two we got the handle works freely so.
That shouldn't be an issue. When you're out there so take note of. You do put the rod holders so there. We go handy sturdy nice and. Ifirst got this lx7 unit. Iinitially didn't want to carry. It around in a five-gallon pail. Ididn't think that was a very good idea so. Iended up getting this trophy angler soft side case to haul. It around I have not. Even used these rod holders make. It a little easier to transport. Everything now just top off. That five-gallon bucket with a padded spin seat. And we're good to go pro tip of the day. Once again appreciate. You join me thank.
