      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 .

Looking at new bows......

Recommended Posts

I am looking at two bows and trying to decide which one to get,

I have been bowhunting for 18 years so I know I need to shoot both and all that but just looking for input on the new hoyt alphamax compared to the truth 2 by bear. Any thoughts would be great, good and bad

Shoot them both and any others you can get your hands on. My father just bought a new bow last week after finally retireing his 12-14 year old Hoyt. He's 64 and bowhunted since he was a teenager. It was not easy getting him to try some of the new shorter axle bows but after shooting 5-6 diff bows he settled on a Martin cheetah.

All the top manufactures make great bows, some just feel better in the hand to each individual. I really liked shooting Hoyts superhawk, Diamonds blackice, and the Martin, oh and Matherws S2...

p.s. - I did not shoot the alphamax but it specks out similar to the superhawk. Those cam and a halfs draw a bit diff, not bad just differnt. Last year I shot the Truth and was impressed also, nice bow and price...

I just got a truth 2, i really like it pretty light, not lighting fast like some of the bows but still IBO of like 315 is nice. Shoots smooth, i got a killer deal on it that i couldnt pass up so i bought it and dont regret it, had my other bow for 8 season thought it was time to get a new one, the truth 2 is a great bow.
