      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 .

STREN SUPER BRAID - good or bad?

Recommended Posts

Does anyone use this? is it good or bad? saw it on sale at a local store for $6.99, was going to pick one up, but not sure why it would be on sale like that. I'm not that satisfied with my power pro i'm using.

Thanks

I tried one of Stren braids last year Micro Braid or something like that. Worked good for most of the year. Went to use it this spring it was junk all fraided and weak.

I really like the mono but dont think I will try the braided again.

I actually prefer the Stren monofilament over Trilene monofilament even though both are affiliated to Berkley

You would think it would be good being affiliated to Berkley and Spider wire.

I have been using it this year, I got a killer deal on 1200 yards of 80#, it's so cheap because Stren discontinued the Super Braid.

For 6.99 buy you'll be happy you did.

Yep, it's on clearance because Stren discontinued it and has since replaced it with Sonic Braid. It was my favorite braid and I still have 4 rods spooled up with it.

thanks guys i'll be sure to pick one or two up! One more question, is there a shelf life on braid lines (i.e. if i buy it this year and not use it, would it be as good as new next year?)... also the deal is at joe's in st. paul/maplewood if anyone is close and needs a new line. its in one of the isles on the bottom by some lures(it is not hanging up with the other lines).

This is my second year with it and I also stocked up on a bunch at this clearance sale price as well. Have it on multiple rods, both spinning and casting, and has worked great on all of them.
