      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 .

bow mod

Recommended Posts

I'm new to bow hunting and 4 months ago I purchased a bow in my price range, a pse rally, decent for a first bow shoots nice and quite and I like the feel of it. But after a few things I have changed on the bow to make it better and my own, and after shooting my old mans bow. I want to know if it is possible to put a wood handle on the bow since mine only has 2 pieces of rubber on each side? My dads buckmaster that has a wood handle just feels so much better to shoot even with a 2 inch longer draw than mine I could still group arrows really close. Or would this mod be more in the area of having to buy a different bow?

I know you can get custom or aftermarket grips for Mathews bows. I'd bet you can get them for other brands like PSE as well. I googled up a company called Jager Archery that makes custom grips. You might start there. I've never used a custom or aftermarket grip on any of my bows.

yeah looked at that site. I'm thinking this mod will be out of the question, just gonna have to suck it up and use the bow the way it is or buy a new one.

While grip is personal preference, most experts say that a thinner grip is more accurate. A thick wooden grip does very little during your shot because very little of your hand touches the grip during the shot. It is nice for holding onto, but not alway for accuracy.

That being said, there are many types of aftermarket grips out there that you could look at if you'd like to try it.

I understand that thinner could be better, I shoot open handed anyway. But the the wood handle contours your hand better even when you shoot open handed. So with the thinner handle I tend to torque the bow more and the wood handle I torque less and shoot tighter groups.
