I have an FL-8 and love it. The one nice thing about the Humminbirds is that they operate on different frequencies than the Marcum and Vexilar units so you won't have interference if you're fishing next to someone using a Marcum or Vexilar. I think the power output for the VX 1 is 1000 watts, the Ice 35 is 800, and the Fl-8 is 400. With the Marcum you get the zoom feature that you won't get with the FL-8. The Ice 35 has a zoom but it's kind of weird in that it's a 10', 2X zoom so it's not going to do you much good in less than 20 feet of water. Marcum's target separation is slighting narrower than Vexilar also. Vexilar makes a digital depth meter that you can use so you get a definitive depth. All three will be three color flashers. If it were my money I would go with the Marcum.
