      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 .

Reel Repair Help

Recommended Posts

This week I had two reels break on me. One of them is a C3 7000 which I had the worm gear bend on me. Anyone know where I can get a replacement worm gear? [Edit: Called Abu and they are sending a replacement worm gear total cost of $12.97]

The other is a C3 5600. This one i'm not sure what broke. I am able to reel line in, but if I take my hand off the handle it will spin backward allowing the spool to also spin backward. Any thoughts? Or any suggestions on where to bring it to have it looked at?

Where are you located? If nothing else, you could send your reels to Pure Fishing. They're great to deal with and are usually very quick.

Sounds like the anti-reverse bearing went out on your 5600... Nothing you really can do but to look for a replacement face plate for that reel as you cannot replace the AR bearing... its pressed in the face plate... Thats how my first Abu was no-good...

I don't know how much you fish, but if you can afford it I would throw that ABU'S in the garbage and start over. You will find yourself putting money into those year after year. Try out a 400B. Just my two cents!

brings back memories. I second PostFrontal, Wayzata Bait, give them a call. I also second esoxhunter, switched over to a shimano curado's and calcutta's and have been fishing with no worries.
