      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 .

no.  the one that i used for a few days gave me all the same headaches all the other inlines did.   i only used it on sunfish so the little tungsten jigs did not activate the "free fall" function of the reel.  still had to pull off by hand.  and their drag isn't any better.

Interesting! I have the no 8 inline and it has a freespool tension adjustment knob, my tungsten jigs fly down the hole with minimal involvement.

Not as smooth as the 6061's. Even on the lightest tension setting it's hard to get smaller jigs to drop, even small tungsten. Nowhere near what the 6061's could do.  Drag is adequate but not great.

 

However, I really like the ergonomics of it. I've turned it into my small/medium pan fish spoon reel because it will drop those.

 

Was it worth the price of admission, I'd lean towards no. They have work to do on this one.
