Deciding Between The Vexilar Pro Pack II and Ultra Pack For Your Ice Fishing Flasher?
I’ll run through a few things here. First, the Ultra Pack has an actual battery on/off switch. When you turn it off you can be sure that it isn’t using any additional battery or drawing power. The Pro Pack doesn’t have this switch.
With the Ultra Pack, the battery is enclosed and inaccessible from the back. There are two battery leads instead located on the front of the unit. So overall, the casing unit is more square/boxy and then it has a piece that juts out from the back to store the transducer. The ProPack housing is circular design. Both allow your ice fishing flasher to fit into a 5-gallon bucket.
The battery leads are exposed on the Pro Pack II. This leaves it vulnerable to a short circuit in the case of rain, but the fact that there isn’t additional plastic casing for the battery means that the back is open and accessible, and lighter in weight. Furthermore, this becomes a moot point if you just pick up a soft case.
Both have a rod holder, small tackle box, and eyebolt on the front for the transducer holder. Both great options for a Vexilar FLX 28 or Vexilar FL-18.
