      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 .

Mathews Legacy

Recommended Posts

I just talked to a guy who has a mathews legacy for sale for 350, the bow is 6 years old and Im wondering if that is a fair price. I have been a bear and pse guy so i dont know much about mathews other then the things I have been reading about them. Wondering if anybody has any info for me.

Is it the bow alone? Anything included with it?

Either way, it seems somewhat high. Check out the big online auction center to compare.

I would also figure that you may need a new string and I would have the cam checked.

There is another site that has free classifieds. I have seen many 2006 and newer Bowtechs that were originaly $700 go for $325-$450 bare bow w/shiping. The price of $350 sounds high. If it includs a good dropaway rest, quiver and a very good sight. It may not be that bad of a buy if it fits you.

Be carefull when buying a used bow. Take it to a proshop and have it looked over, limbs, cams, string ect.

I believe that the Matthews Legacy is a draw length specific cam. Make sure that it is the correct draw length.

Good Luck

Steve

Seems very high unless it is loaded. Also make sure that it is in good shape. Resale value on bows is pretty lousy.

Agree with everyone else, seems high, do some research on used bows and you might find a better deal in the process.

Probably can find a better bow for that price, fully loaded. Lots of great bows fully loaded for around the $400 give or take $100. Matthews does make a great bow.

if its in good shape fully loaded that is about what they have been going for. My dad just sold his Legacy on HSO-Classifieds for $430 and that was fully loaded and in perfect condition. A guy that runs a bow shop in CO baught it I believe. Personally I would shoot the bow befor buying it, are at least shoot a legacy.

As far a Mathews goes they are tuff to beat. I loved the one's that I have had.

FYI Mathew's lifetime warranty ends when the original owner sells it.

The bow is loaded and comes with a case but I dont think I will bother with it, I cant see buying something that is six years old because I will just want something new next year, I think I will just bite the bullet and get something new. Thanks for all the info people!

Personally, I would take a 6 yr old Mathews before a lot of the new bows. They are build to last, ya you may need new string but 25 buck big deal. I kept my old one for a back up, just because I couldnt give her up for what its worth

Not sure I agree HOT SPOT, yes you do get what you pay for when it comes to archery equipment but the technology has come a long way in the past 6 years and a lot of mid-level bow are just as good and possibly much better than the hi end bows from years ago. Because of all the new technology the older bows just don't hold their value, not that they are bad bows but a lot of people want the latest a greatest. There certainly isn't anything wrong with an older use bow, I shoot one myself but there are a lot of used bows on the market so you can find a lot of really great deals.

I would say that I would agree with Hotspot. I think that the older stuff just looks better, I think that the new bows with the beyond parallel limbs are just ugly. But that's just my opinion, and yes I shoot an older Mathews still, an LX, I think bows have gotten uglier every year starting with the Switchback.

Well after thinking about it for a couple nights and deciding that i couldnt afford a new mathews I went to the guy and made a deal for the legacy, I will be shooting it first but it feels good and is all set up for me already, same draw length and the peep is in the right spot. Cant wait to shoot it this weekend! Thanks for all the input people!

    • I know folks who clean out the martin house's every year.....
    • I rinsed them and put them out whole.
    • Well, fellas,  lemme tell ya:  I've had one terrific life and done more things than you'd probably believe.  In fact I told my wife one evening shortly after we had moved to the lower 48, "I think you had best cool it with some of your recollections of our time and adventures in the North because I get the feeling most people won't believe you anyway. And to this day we don't shoot off our mouth too much just for that reason. EVERYBODY should be as lucky as I have been!!  
    • Sounds like there will be 17 guns offered!! Come  on the odds of winning a gun are great
    • I will go to small mom and pop bait shops I know pay more for some jugs but I love the service 
    •   Ufatz, not doubting a word you have to say, you are quite the colorful creator. The stories you have told over the years of trapping in the Yukon Territory. Living in a log cabin, driving old trucks with right and left hand lug nuts and fighting off Big Foot have been interesting to listen to.  To say the least. And now, you live in MN and drive a Mercedes Benz!  Hat's off to you're life sir.
    • Just make a point of telling the shop people to use a torque wrench and then tell them the value you want on your vehicle,  which you will have gotten from the manual. My Benz's have aluminum wheels for the most part and you can distort and ruin one it a Millenial Ape gets at them with a giant super powered wham-bam air powered wrench. I've found too many that know drugs,  not lugs.
    • Hey 3rd in the central and winning games on the road, we are certainly trending in the right direction at the right time of year. After some rocky starts to their careers Zucker and Granlund have really turned into some amazing players, like anyone they go hot and cold but I can't really say enough good things about them. Along with Staal they have really carried our offence this year. Hopefully in the next 20 games we can get some other guys going. Coyle can give us more, Nino looks a little off but it sounds like he is still fighting that ankle injury. Parise looks like his old self more and more but just not converting like he use to, hopefully that changes. I was against making a deadline move earlier in the year but if we keep this pace up we really could use another top9 winger, Ennis just isn't cutting it. Absolutely do not want to spend a 1st rounder on anyone at this point but if they can pick up someone decent on the cheap it might be worth it. We still have the majority of the team that was 2nd in the west last year and if they can play up a little closer to their potential there is not reason we can't make some noise in the playoffs in some kind of underdog fashion.
    • I went to the store in Woodbury a few times for reloading supplies and thought it was a good store. I like that format better than the upscale Cabela's model. 
    •  Did you grind them up a little bit or put them out whole
