Vexilar FL8SLT vs FL8 SE whats the difference??
It is said to have brighter colors, and "better interference rejection."
I had the SLT for MANY years, and it worked fine, even fishing right next to other flasher units. I never once thought "I wish the colors were brighter."
Either model will be adequate, but I did upgrade to an FL-12 because of the flat screen and to get a dual angle transducer.
If you are out fishing in snow the dial will fill up on the FL-8 and FL-18 models.
