      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 .

I agree that they also helped to tighten up my groups a bit.

I pay to have mine fletched. I have always wanted to fletch my own but I go through so few, it really doesn't cost me that much.

I shoot a heavier (125 gr) fixed blade broadhead and used to have problems getting them to fly good. Now I shoot Quickspins and have no problems with arrow flight at all. As mentioned shooting them through a whisker biscuit may give you some issues.

They don't hold up real well for target shooting because they seem to be a little soft, but for shooting broadheads they work really good.

Do they seem noisier to anyone or is it just me? It seems to me that they are louder when flying, will that cause problems when used for hunting. I was not impressed with them at all I didn't shoot any better with these then a regular blazer vane, did I do something wrong?

Thanks for the replies.

There may be a slight hiss while the arrow is in flight. It doesn't seem to me that it is any louder than any other vane. The noise is probably mostly from the arrow anyway.

IMO the blazer is more hype than anything. It functions the same as any other vane. The only difference with quik spins is that they impart a bit more spin. I think that would help with accuracy at longer distances. Inside 30 yards it probably doesn't make a difference which vane you shoot. They just seemed to shoot a little better for me. Of course, it's like anything else. Confidence goes a long ways.

I'M NOT SLAMMING BLAZERS! So lets not go to war on which vane is best. I shot blazers the last two years and they performed well. I just feel I shoot better with quik spins. The price for them is a little out of line though.

Blazers were actually designed for the wisker biscut rest that is why they are made stiffer then any other vane, then we relized how well they will make a fixed broadhead fly out to some very long ranges and still keeping perfect arrow flight with such short fletching instead of the normal 4" or 5" fletch that is were all the hype came from,and for me until they come up with something different that is what I am shooting. And now most prefletched arrows at the shop are now fletched with the blazers also. They still don't make my groups smaller with the recurve but I think thats just me. laugh

I've have tested the quick spins (2" and 4") and they really don't make much of a different if your shooting within 25 yards. The 4" vane shoots tighter groups anything beyond 30 yards and the 2" vanes are probably just for looks. Maybe the 2" might work better on smaller and lighter arrows.

I fletch my own arrows all with a right degree spin.

Thats a good point I never considered arrow weight and speed into any of this. I shot with blazers all summer so far so Ill switch back to regular blazers and see if anything changes.

    • Yes, we buy the spray cans of olive oil,canola or whatever. I personally haven't tried fish but with breaded chicken I'm not a big fan. It works great when I make wings and non battered chicken. Just my personal experience.
    • That is a thing of beauty. I am speechless and if you know me........
    • Those are cool but I enjoy the amount of water that mixes with my whiskey when I put 2 or 3 cubes of ice in it.
    • That's why my wife is getting one for Winter Solstice too!
    • Milton’s put 1/8 on your house? Was that the new owner? Mines Miltona, 4 years old and came with either 1/4 or 5/16, not 100% sure but it wasn’t 1/8. 
    • I get what Del is saying to a certain extent. I would never buy a bottle of Pappy for $2000. There's no way that any whiskey can taste 40-50 times better than a $30-$50 bottle. I actually rarely buy anything over $35/bottle but that's just me being cheap. I do like to try the $50 stuff but have rarely found anything that I like better than Eagle Rare, Buffalo Trace or Maker's Mark. Actually one of my favorite Bourbon's is Jim Beam Black for only about $25 a bottle. That being said I couldn't care less what other people drink or what they pay for their whiskey, beer, wine or whatever. If you have a job and make your own money, buy and drink what you want. I don't know if that's true or not but I sometimes wonder the same thing about all the people who claim to like really hoppy beers.
    • Between the frig and stove its only about 2 steps    My kinda program !!!
    • like any addiction..........there are the 12 steps!!!!!!!!!!
    • awe............a Christmas present for the wife................so you can use it!!!! I see!!!!!!!!!LOL!!!!!!
    • Whatever gets you though the night.  If it makes you feel superior to drink expensive whiskey then by all means do so.
