      Members Only Fluid Forum View   08/08/2017

      Fluid forum view allows members only to get right to the meat of this community; the topics. You can toggle between your preferred forum view just below to the left on the main forum entrance. You will see three icons. Try them out and see what you prefer.   Fluid view allows you, if you are a signed up member, to see the newest topic posts in either all forums (select none or all) or in just your favorite forums (select the ones you want to see when you come to Fishing Minnesota). It keeps and in real time with respect to Topic posts and lets YOU SELECT YOUR FAVORITE FORUMS. It can make things fun and easy. This is especially true for less experienced visitors raised on social media. If you, as a members want more specific topics, you can even select a single forum to view. Let us take a look at fluid view in action. We will then break it down and explain how it works in more detail.   The video shows the topic list and the forum filter box. As you can see, it is easy to change the topic list by changing the selected forums. This view replaces the traditional list of categories and forums.   Of course, members only can change the view to better suit your way of browsing.   You will notice a “grid” option. We have moved the grid forum theme setting into the main forum settings. This makes it an option for members only to choose. This screenshot also shows the removal of the forum breadcrumb in fluid view mode. Fluid view remembers your last forum selection so you don’t lose your place when you go back to the listing. The benefit of this feature is easy to see. It removes a potential barrier of entry for members only. It puts the spotlight on topics themselves, and not the hierarchical forum structure. You as a member will enjoy viewing many forums at once and switching between them without leaving the page. We hope that fluid view, the new functionality is an asset that you enjoy .

loose reel in seat

Recommended Posts

I have a gray curado 300 dsv on a 7'6" fenwick hmx flipping stick. like it, except the reel sits in there loose even with its cranked in hard. actually had it pop off twice on me. I feel its loose when hitting fish hard in the slop, but thats pretty much what I use it for.

anybody have similiar problems before or suggestions about what to do?

I have heard of it before, but never really had it happen. Some fit snugger than others. I would get some sort of a shim in there, be it on the bottom of the reel seat or the ends, or both if needed...

I have a Calais that wont fit in one of my reel seats (also a fenwick rod) but this reel came with plastic shims that solved the problem. If you cant find anything you may be able to contact shimano and have some sent to you.

Curado 300 is a good sized reel, suprised you are having that problem. If you want it fixed right, I would recommend bringing it to Thorne Bros or any other rod builder - they should be able to help you figure out a good solution.
