      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

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.

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 am ready except it looks like it’s going to be warm and buggy.
    • My buddy does the same always revs the four wheeler up before he leaves. On his sits he would have someone else drive him in bait while he gets in the stand they rev the four wheeler and take off. Dinner bell come and get it
    • No clue yet somewhere with a cheap motel and some public land
    • Who's ready for the season? Cant wait!
    • After a while we only started hunting evening because we never had any come in the AM. We also started making a bit of noise when baiting (rattling cans) when we had two Bears working. They started coming in right after we baited so the bait, after noon and stay behind hunter seemed to work pretty well.
    • sorta helps, I'll find it...  thanks... me and google just got it.....     have to go see!!
    • Hall of Fame? You must be joking...... Every player starts out like that. No one starts out with a 23 m dollar contract. He still averaged about 15 million per year for his career, that average probably goes up if he plays past 2018. I think he will be ok.
    • Joe was also the 74th highest paid player the year he won the MVP. You may say he is over paid now but he was underpaid 1st half of his career. @Bobby Bass   I don't think Joe is a future Hall of Famer, not even close to borderline but a great player none the less. I think if the Twins would have made a deeper playoff runs back when Morneau was healthy and Santana was Cy-young would have helped. But Joes playoff numbers are terrible. I could maybe see HOF if he would have stayed at catcher his entire career though..... But he will more than likely end up winning a gold glove at 2 positions, and with one being catcher that is pretty elite.
    • Big Dave most if not all pro contracts are paying you for what you have already done with the hope that you will continue to produce. Looking at todays contract Joe's is not to out of line for a future Hall of Famer
    • Great! He is finally earning a contract close to what he is being paid.
