      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 .

Highlifter outlaw 2/ deep snow tire?

Recommended Posts

Anyone running these tires in the winter? How well do they work for deep snow? Need a good all season/deep snow tire for a sportsman 500

Can't comment on the highlifters.  But when I bought new tires I got the STI Mud Trax.  They are somewhat similar in the big lugs and directional pattern.  

I found that they do just ok on snow and ice.  On ice, similar to if you are just on a hard pack surface, only the bottom of the lugs are touching so you don't have much surface area which equals not much traction on ice.  

In snow the big lugs dig in quite a bit, similar to soft sand.  Once your down and in that snow chews up so soft and thin, that there isn't any thing to grab and you end up high centered.  


So with that said, I have ridden around other wheelers with some different tires.  And the best ones I have seen in snow, have been Interco Radial Reptiles.  So those or a similar pattern to those would be what I would get and should have gotten.  Sedona Ripsaw looks like a good pattern too.  


I went a size up on both my front and back when I got new ones.  Next time I get new tires, I will go the same size in front as in back.  Just to get more surface area and gain a little flotation in snow.
