Vexilar Genz Pack in Marcum soft case?
« on: Feb 03, 2016, 01:28 PM »
Does anyone know if a Vexilar Genz Pack will fit in a Marcum soft case? Or if a Vexilar FL-20 will mount to a Marcum shuttle, if so what modifications would be required? I am not looking for opinions on who makes the best flasher, I just really like the Marcum shuttle and soft pack much better than any of the Vexilar shuttle/soft pack options. I have done several searches but have not been able to find anything.
Thank you,
Zubie

Thank you for the response, I have actually looked at that soft pack from Glen's as it is a very good price. It looks the same as the Vexilar soft pack for the Genz box but I do not like the design of the transducer being stored on the outside of the case.

You should be able to get the transducer in the units holder/shuttle inside the case/bag w/o a problem ..I have the round style TA bag ...able to do it w/o any issues

My FL-18 head fit on a  Marcum VX-1 shuttle and soft pack, just couldn't justify spending $67.00. I use the Trophy Angler bag on my Genz pack.

how old is your genz pack? should have a place for the puck on the back of it if it is newer. I know your against vex's soft pack, however the only thing that is on the outside of mine is the float, then everything else closes up nice tight and secure.

It will be a brand new Genz  pack so it has the transducer holder in the back by the battery.

In that case I just run my ducer cord out the side ( there is a gap in the velcro for it) park the float in the mesh side pocker and put the ducer in the holder in the case, nice tight fit so it don't rattle around, fasten back velcro down tight, good to go!  ;D

Ditched the float, I use a eye bolt with the transducer cord stop, store the transducer in the Genz box.



The Vexilar soft pack, same construction as the TA, different color materials save your money.  http://www.glensoutdoors.com/trophy-angler-ice-guide-square-bottom-flashers-soft-pack.html
