      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 .

Berkley Vanish

Recommended Posts

Just wondering how everyone thinks of this brand of flourocarbon line? I just bought a pack of 14lb vanish last night and rigged it up on my Shimano Citica 200E. Plan on using this for cranking/spinnerbaiting and maybe some texas-rigging. At only $11, I'm hoping it's worth the money for 250 yards.

all that stuff is really good for is leaders.. i tried some on my shamano and it would backlash like it had something to prove no matter how tight the friction thing was it would still back lash when i quit reeling.. makes a great leader tho!

I have 12# on my baitcaster and backlashes are rare. I think the lines casts pretty well too. No complaints here.

i've used it in 12 to 17 pound test with no line conditioner and it works fine. i get more backlashes with my reels with braid than the ones with vanish. i actually think it gives less backlashes than the 100% flouro that berkley has to. just my 2 cents.

I too only use it for leaders. I use 12 lb and 20 lb tied to heavier Power pro. I really do like the stuff for that purpose but I've never spooled anything up with flouro. Don't see any reason to as I like the uni knot.

I had alot of backlash problems with the ice version. Won't use it again, except for maybe leaders.

I tried it and didn't like it. I think it is very susceptible to breakage on hooksets. I would pay the money for berkely 100% flouro.
