      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 .

Shimano Scorpion 1000???

Recommended Posts

I am in the market for 2 new baitcasters. I fish mostly soft plastics and jigs. I will be putting new reels on a 6'6" MH Falcon Low Rider (mostly for jigs) and a 7' MH Gapen (worm rod). I am considering the Shimano Scorpion 1000. Any feedback on these reels or other good suggestions for my applications would be much appreciated.

Thanks,
Double

I know the scorpion's are the Japanese version of the Curado. And the Curado is the standard Bread and Butter bass reel from Shimano. They should be great reels.

I have a scorpion 1000, outstanding reel! I can throw 1/8 oz jigs , weightless worms no problem. The brake system is outstanding. It rivals the chronarch super free in smoothness at $100 less. I added a curado super free to my line up this year to get a reel with a little more line capacity. I would say you cant go wrong with either reel. I would say though that the scorpion is more for lighter lures,I dont use it for pitching bigger (1/2 oz +) jigs and lures ,it is also a great reel for throwing tiny crankbaits like the stike king 1xs. I use a curado for the heavy stuff. Good luck Dan
