      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 .

which hand auger to buy?

Recommended Posts

Guest

well, it's time to replace the mora auger, and was curious what to replace it with.

i figured it was a no brainer go with the lazer, but i just talked to a guy that said he used one this weekend that was even better than the lazer. but don't know who makes it.

i guess you use both arms to turn the auger, it doesn't have the knob on top for down pressure, i guess it just pulls itself into the ice,

i see jiffy makes one that looks like that and i also found one that was an eskimo.

so what do you guys suggest?

The two handled auger you refered to is made by Nil Master. Cabelas carries them under some other name, something High Velocity, I can't remember the full name.

They are the real deal, however. They are the best hand auger I have ever seen.

I'm still trying to get used to the two handed method, but I give it high marks on my limited use with it so far. Quality workmanship, a little heavier than Strikemaster hand augers, my 8" Nils weighs close to ten pounds. But it is worth the extra weight and money for its' ice penetration capability. I would think you could find one on sale at this time of year at Cabelas.
