      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 .

It's called a professional Bronson63 made in U.S.A. It's a closed faced reel but push button is in the handle of the rod. Looks old but is in good shape. Never seen one like it. Just wondering if anyone knows anything about it or where I can find out. Thanks, Eric

A BRONSON 63 PROFESSIONAL UNISPIN?

A steel rod, 4-5 line guides, walnut grip, aircraft aluminum reel housing, reel is built into the rod, something like that?

Does the thumb push button also turn to adjust the drag?

If you had a photo that would help.

My guess?

The Bronson Reel Co., organized in Bronson, Mich., in 1922, specialized in low-to-mid priced reels, and most of their products retain little value. The only BIG exception is their line of Coxe-Bronson reels.

J.A. Coxe, who made very well known big-game trolling reels at his shop in L.A. for fifteen years until his company was bought by the Bronson Reel Co., of Bronson, Mich., in 1934.

Coxe continued to manufacture, or at least supervise the manufacture of trolling reels based on his designs and marked with his name. Coxe patented his "signature" star drag in 1924 and had a couple of later patents that were assigned to Bronson. Manufacturing of the largest reels was not resumed after World War II.

The line of "Bronson-Coxe" reels eventually was expanded to include some nice baitcasters, as well as smaller saltwater reels. These were Bronson's top-of-the-line products, none of their other reels approached them in quality and collectability.

Hope this helps.
