      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 .

Does anyone own a bowtech 82nd airborne?

Recommended Posts

Been lookin to get a new bow and I have a short draw length was wondering if anyone has feedback on wether they like it or not. Looking for a little more speed but don't want to comprimize shootability. I am not new to archery just have never moved into a so called speed bow.

I shot it but wasn't impressed. Granted I have the shoulders of a 60 year old in a 25 year olds body. Peak was too much and didn't think it was that good of a bow for the money. I ended up with a carry over mathew's but I also have bad shoulders so that's why.

I did shoot the 82nd last year along with a few other bows just for the fun of it. Not a bad bow but wasnt in love with it, I thought it was a little on the loud side and not the smoothest bow Ive ever shot but other than that not too bad. It is crazy fast though even compared to my allegiance. The best bow I shot last year was the Bowtech guardian smoothest and quietest bow out there IMO. My cousin ended up buying it and at a 26.5 or 27 inch draw length I think he was shooting around 260 fps. Really any new high end bow is going to get you into the 250-280 fps but like you said it depends alot on draw length also. Speed isnt everything, dont get a bow that your not comfortable shooting just because it shoots 30 fps faster than one that feels alot better.

I do understand the importance of having a bow fit and be comfortable to the shooter. I'm just looking for some personal feed back on the bow. I'll just have to go shoot it and see how it feels. I'm going to shoot alot of different bows. I'm just not set on any one paticular manufacture or model.

Nothing takes the place of first hand experience. You need to go try it.

I bought a new bow last year and I tried them all. CHeap, high end, fast slow, etc. I tried the 82nd and didn't like it. I thought it was too aggressive and have vibration on the shot.

My two choices were the PSE Xforce 6 and the Hoyt Katera. I chose the PSE because it was faster, lighter and had less vibration.

All I have added to my bow is a string tamer and its quiet and shock free. You should try the PSE.

    • I just wanted to share some of my experiments with solar power and solar heat on my fish house. It's 8x12 with one 100 watt solar panel and a custom made 4x7 active solar heating panel on the back. It puts out some incredible heat for free, up to 110F. 
    • It's the cooking forum, someone asked about your bedtime eating habits. Not sure how that's not food/ cooking related. You didn't derail nuttin but maybe rundave can enlighten us.
    • After today's drubbing, I fully expect the Goph's to take the Axe and crush Wisconsin's heart next week. Seriously. Why? Because MN teams have a knack for beating the best and losing to the worst.
    • And I didn't mean to derail this thread, somebody asked about my bedtime eating habits. I view message boards like real life conversations, and when do conversations truly stay on topic 100% of the time? And speaking of, seemingly all online forums have seen a decline in participation in the last couple of years, it's not just here at HSO. Can't truly put my finger on the reason why, but it is what it is. The world is continually changing. Sorry that I can't contribute much here in the cooking forum, that's what women are for. LOL Kidding ladies, calm your teats down.
    • I will look into that.  Thank you
    • I keep it on and only fish Upper Red Lake.
      I'm spoiled

    • Looking to upgrade.  What are your thoughts on theses units?  Im still using my Fl8 which is at least 15 years old.  Still works great but getting a little noisy.
    • Does anyone know of a program where a person can create a calendar for your home computer?  What I would like for it to do is be your wallpaper and change automatically at the beginning of each month.
    • Nice rig Snowbound.  What do you use to haul it around?
