      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 .

Arrow Vanes

Recommended Posts

Hey all.........was just wondering what type of vanes are the preferred vane for you.  Right now I have Blazer's but have been looking at the new Helios vanes.  Up until I bought these Maxima Red's with the Blazers, i was shooting Quick Spins.  Honestly, I don't notice much difference between the two as far as my accuracy.  Obviously shooting more and more and more and more is going to tighten my groups up that much more, so I guess that begs the question.......how much to vanes really make the difference?

I really think if your arrow is tuned to you bow  right and you have a drop away rest, it doesnt matter that much what vane you use.  Quick spin might help a fixed broadhead a bit since it spins quicker but I dont see how it would help target points or expandables.  Over the years I have tried a buncha product and now it's down to what do I like the looks of. I like feathers for indoor target shooting and smaller vanes for 3D shoots.  Havnt done it for a while but used to do it a lot. For hunting I like a 3 inch vane and I shoot expandables.  Nice bright colors help me find the arrow quicker when needed.  And the vane is silent if I brush it against something,  like my sleeve... :)

I've been using blazers for 4-5 years now and really like them. I fletch my own arrows so I have tried a few different vanes. Had the quick spins for a season but they were really noisy. I also tried the fusion vanes they worked well and were very durable. I just prefer the look of blazers so I switched back to them.

Yeah, I think they all work just fine.  I have stuck with 4" feathers mainly because I think they are the best for stabilizing an arrow and I think they look the coolest.  Its about the last traditional thing about my whole rig.  =^D

    • Looks like a squid attacked the brisket.
    • Much better results this time. Nailed it!  
    • Gibson and Butler showed what good defense looks like last night.  Now can the others follow suit? Teague, is not off to a good start.  i would rather watch Jones than Teague.  Not 1 thing looks good with him.
    • What lens you use for the night sky pictures? I really like them.
    • And finally some finished pictures. Rod holders in the back rests of the rear dinette. UV lights in bench for charging glow in the dark jigs. Switches next to the radio control the outdoor speakers and the other controls the exterior strobe lights. I have a strobe controller wired into the trailer lights. I did LED strip lights instead of the traditional individual hole lights.
    • I have been building a fish house and have decided to share it on here sense so many of you (Especially Lip_Ripper) have helped me out so much. I used basically all of the same building techniques Lip_Ripper and a few other guys on this site have used. Stole a few ideas from some of you but hopefully no one gets too worked up over that. I have everything except the bathroom, plumbing, lift bed, and awning done. It is 100% a fish house right now, ready for ice and I can't wait to get it out! Frame- 8X21' +4' V Valley Manufacturing galvanized hydraulic Walls/roof- 1x2" rectangular tubing Siding- Flat black aluminum held on with 3M adhesive tape Roof- 3/8" plywood covered with rubber membrane Floor- 3/4" marine grade plywood Insulation- Closed cell spray foam   One piece aluminum wheel wells.  1/4" cedar tongue and groove. At this point I was still undecided if I was going to stain it or not and sense I did end up staining it I should have just used pine. Looking back on it now it could have saved me a few bucks. The start of staining. I used Sherwin-Williams Pecan.
    • Pine County is full of them!
    • My dad made a return trip to the same area yesterday. He saw 3 birds, but didn’t get any shots off. Pretty encouraging he’s seeing a lot of birds in that area. We’re heading up to Grand Marais on Monday for the week, should be good times!
    • Good thing they’re playing the late game today. Give the weather a chance to clear up. As much I like watching games in the rain, 3 weeks in a row is enough!
    • At least the twins won’t have to worry about Detroit being a threat for years to come. Gardenhire and rebuilding just don’t go together.
