      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 .

Swhacker broadheads

Recommended Posts

Any input on the Swhacker 2 blade mechanical broadheads?  I've got a buddy who just swtiched to them and while he hasn't used them on a deer yet he's been very impressed with their flight and accuracy compared to field points. In theory they look like they'd leave a large exit and do some serious damage.  I also looked at them on Amazon and they have overwhelmingly positive reviews.  Curious if anyone here has experience with them.

I have shot 4 deer with them with great results. 2" model . I recommend using a arrow over 400 grains at 60 plus pounds to help with pass throughs .  They fly great for me

I'm currently set up at 50 pounds due to a shoulder issue but may be able to bump it up a little by time the season gets here.  The shoulder is getting stronger each time out.  One of my concerns with them was regarding shooting them at a little lower draw weight as that seemed to be common concern in the reviews I've read.

The other broadhead I'm looking at is the Magnus Stinger 2 blade.  It seems to be a good option when shooting a little lower poundage.

I have shot just about all the top Broadheads out there and they have all seemed to have failed me on performance and lack of blood trails at one point or another and as of the last 3 years I have been using the NAP KillZone with tremendous success and massive entry and exit holes leaving massive amounts of blood. They do tremendous damage and are extremely durable and work flawlessly. I am shooting 68lbs with the newer Easton Ingexion arrow at 29 inches and 10.1 gpi. Below is your typical entry hole and exit hole are even bigger. Hope this helps.

There are so many options out there and its seems each one has their fans and critics.  Seems the Magnus Stingers get a ton of praise, as due Killzone and Muzzy.  Ultimately it will probably come down to what shoots best out of the individual bow but at $30 for a pack of 3 its tough to go out and buy a bunch to see what shoots best out of your individual bow. 

Right now I'm still leaning toward the Stingers but I'll look closer at the Killzone as they have also been recommended a few times.

Not to beat up the local stores but I buy my heads online , some as low as $1.25 each . My slicktricks were about $7 each . $30-40 for a pack is nuts . But I live about 50 min from a good store

I've been checking out Amazon for most of them and I've found most 3 packs of various heads starting around $20.  I'll probably go do the typical looking around at the stores and then go buy them online.  Although I may also just go up to my local bow shop and buy them, they'll be a bit more expensive than online but I'm ok with that if it helps keep a good shop in business.
