      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 .

Got my new Core 50! Reviews?

Recommended Posts

Man o man.. is this reel small. Big difference from the original core. It's even slightly smaller then the steez. The handle is a bit smaller too, compared to the older 85mm core. Palms a lot better then the old core. Can't wait to get her out on the water! Matched her up on my Cumara 6'9 Med/Hvy fast rod! Boy is it lighter then the regular core. Throws the balance point off a bit.

Deitz.. have you fished the reel yet? What are your thoughts? What color brakes are more aggresive? I'm ordering some ceramic bearings for it tomorrow!

I have not even held one in my hands yet.. So your one up on me. Looks purdy though..

Do you really think the ceramic bearnings will help that much?

they made a difference in my daiwa and other core. I wouldn't doubt it. I'll report back tonight. Maybe I'll hookup to a monster!

ergo and shape. Skimmed off about .5 ounce or so. Much more over the flipping version. I'm not sure if the gear is still brass or not though. Added 3 more bearings.. I take it, it was to the worm gear and knobs. Much more palmable then my other core.

grin Ease of pitching and casting distance. The ceramic bearings are lighter and are smoother but are a tad bit louder. If you haven't tried them before.. give them a go. They're about 15-20 bucks and very easy to replace on reels. Shimano are super easy. Daiwa has it on the spool so it's just a bit more work. Made improvements on my daiwas so I tried them on my core. They were just a little louder then the normal bearings but boy did they make a difference. I have them in all my baitcasters! I can give you the info to the reel guru on tackle tour forums. He's an awesome guy and will tell you what's best. He'll even tell me where I can find the bearings cheaper then what he sells it for.

    • I will decide if that is true when I get my nills back out. hopefully soon. 
    • Would you be able to post pics of your bed again?  I really like that idea, very smart.  Would you make any changes on the next one.  Should get my firebrand shell this week, lots to do.
    • Beaver Bay sports rents although I've never used them. 
    • There's really no wrong way of doing a roast if ya ask me, it's all personal preference. Crockpot,  roaster, oven or boiled (del) . Although I do enjoy throwing cold smoke this time of year at a roast before it hits the roaster!!
    • 2nd that,  30 years here...
    • oh wow!!!!!  poster too!!
    • Yer gonna be blowin' chunks one of these days, Delbert. Why not just an easy overnight marinade, then in the crackpot on low, and lift that lid a few times to keep the heat low? I always pull mine at 4-5 hours on LOW, not the 6-8 they say. I have about 155* internal and still pinkish at that, and I have 3 different crackpots I use. Never had it fail in oh, ten or fifteen years.....maybe because I always do a top round or rump, instead of an arm or chuck. You DO  occasionally get a tougher one, that has a lot of sinew in it, that's why I eyeball mine so carefully. (working 2 yrs at the butcher shop helped, too) I always let it sit in a covered glass dish for 10-15 mns before I start slicing away....
    • I worked with stainless for 28 years, it's the way to go.
    • Yeah, I forgot to include the LEM, which is basically the Rikon with a different badge. I know that style will cut better and definitely be a better unit. Just not sure if I am going to justify the price at 2x higher for a very occasional piece of equipment.    A wood bandsaw could be used. The saw doesn't know whether it's cutting meat or wood. The difference is that a stainless table and blades would be preferred IMO. Cleanup probably isn't much different between all of them.
